Stay strong and enjoy your day. It's a new day!!!

The MOST important thing you can do is educate yourself about the nicotine addiction by reading, reading and more reading…

You need  a 'quit kit' composed of a list of distraction techniques and things to help you through like cinnamon sticks, crunchy things (carrots, celery, chips some hard candy, lots of water), lemons…biting into a lemon or sticking your head in the freezer and taking a deep breath gets you through.

It takes the mindset that we aren't giving up anything...we are doing it because we want to and not signing up for a lifetime of deprivation but a lifetime of freedom...that is the personal journey no one can take for us...We will be here for you every step of the way! xo

Keep counting.    I look at my count up clock several times throughout the day and LOVE seeing the numbers go up.    I know how many weeks, days, hours, minutes, seconds I've been free.    And often that is a big incentive to keep going.       Stay close to the site and read everything you can.    I learn something about my addiction and myself everyday when I read and blog.

Stay strong.     You can do this!!!
