Brief description: If you still want one - you're still vulnerable. Protect your quit! If you preach it, practice it. And don't take the Truth as criticism!

About me

Young enough to know better, old enough to better know. 

I quit smoking March 1, 2006. I smoked a pack and a half a day for about 35 years. What did it take to get me smoke free? Perseverance, a promise not to smoke, and a willingness to be uncomfortable for as long as it took to get me to where I am today. I am an Ex but I have not forgotten the initial difficult journey of this rite of passage. That's one of the things that's keeping me proudly smoke free. I don't want to ever have another Day 1 again.

You too can achieve your goal of being finally free forever. Change your mind, change your habits, alter your focus, release the myths you hold about smoking. And above all - keep your sense of hewmer.  DAY WON - NEVER ANOTHER DAY ONE.




Be selfish with your quit - selfless with your support

BUT - If I've offended, let me know and let’s have an interesting dialogue.  My aim is to help.  If you don’t think I’m doing so, I need to know why so I can be a better supporter.  Let’s talk about it.
