    9 Days And Counting

    I quit nine days ago with the help of the patch. This is my 3d time quitting after smoking for 45 years, but for some reason it feels right this time.I realize it's too early to say I'm a non smoker, but that is my goal.

    I Easily Quit With No Drugs

    Don't let the smoking substitutes fool you into thinking otherwise, not smoking is easy, if you really want to.  I made the decision to break the habit about a month ago, and I'm never looking back. It's easy, because when you think about it, smoking really doesn't do...
