I smoked for over 20 years, but not any longer. I just hit day seven without a cigarette. That means that my body is now free of toxins and it's just a matter of will power. I have tried to stop smoking before and this is the longest I have ever gone without a cigarette. Then again, this is the first time that I have had a true reason to quit. I know that I will never have another cigarette. I know that I have quit smoking.

I am Proud of you!

Keep it up!

Don't give in!

You are VERY Strong!

Thank you. I am now over two months without a cigarette. I appreciate the encouragement.

You are over the peak! It is downhill now!

Don't give in... Always remember the struggle you have gone through to give up .... Whenever the urge attacks... Remind yourself that for a brief momentary relief ... You will have to go through the pain you have suffered over the last TWO MONTHS!!! AGAIN!

It is just not worth going through the withdrawal again ... And the longer you stay off ... Keep reminding yourself. You'll have to start from Zero

My father taught me a very basic lesson. Do Not let the cigarette tip touch your lips. The day you do that you'll be back to a pack a day.

Don't ever let a cigarette touch your lips. This is sacrosanct.

Join me in my struggle - don't give in.

As I said, I know you can do it.

That is a good point. To slip up now means to relive the last two months. Again, thank you. We both can do it.
