Get Rid of the Desire to Smoke

March 27, 2015

Once you do that, quitting becomes much easier because you aren't fighting with yourself. 

Realize that every reason you think you have to smoke is really nicotine addiction lies.

There are no good reasons to smoke, so there is no reason to do it. This is the truth.

Not to sound cliche, but the truth WILL set you free. : )

Six Years of Freedom

March 26, 2015

Thanks everyone for your continued support. I don't often entertain thoughts of smoking anymore, and on the off chance the thought comes into my head I just laugh it off, as I have been taught to do by the wonderful people on this site. You couldn't have a better defense against smoking than the people here. If you are struggling, read the blogs every day (it only takes a few minutes a day).

What Could Go Wrong?

March 26, 2015

Is it true that smoking causes wrinkles?

March 25, 2015

The NICOTINE in cigarettes causes narrowing of the blood vessels in the outermost layers of your skin. This impairs blood flow to your skin. With less blood flow, your skin doesn't get as much oxygen and important nutrients, such as vitamin A.

It is also associated with increased wrinkling and skin damage on other parts of your body, including your inner arms.

Special Afternoon Edition of The Freedom Train 03/25/15

March 25, 2015

On rare occasions the Freedom Train contains errors! This happens because of the huge number of quit dates we try to track! It is also complicated by the fact that some count their milestones the day they get to them and some(like me) count them the next day as milestones passed! Today there was some mix ups, and in order to make sure that all are honored as they should be, the Train is making two runs!! Come and celebrate one and all!!

Good afternoon fellow EXer's! The Freedom Train is... Read full post
