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!!!
