I think my point got lost in my long winded reply.

whyquit.com was the single most helpful information resource that really helped me quit.

Once you get past the doom and gloom on the main page it is very much like bloodsugar101 - but for smoking.

Yes it would seem stupid to not realize smoking is bad for you, yet many people have a very hard time quitting. To understand why that is happening is a good first step in quitting the insanity of that addiction.

And congratulations to all that have quit!

I never smoked because I harassed my mother into stopping 28 years ago. She told me that after my relentless nonstop campaign, she would haunt me for eternity if I ever picked up a cigarette.

Hee hee!

Should have become a lobbyist!

I remember visiting that page while in the midst of quitting and I loved the Quit Smoking Benefits Timetable there. It really puts everything into focus and provides quite a bit of motivation (especially when you are having a tough time of it). I also applaud all who have succeeded in quitting. I often think that those that preach quitting smoking but who have never smoked in their lives have no idea just how difficult it is and how addicted one becomes.

I never stopped smoking, up to four packets a day. The fact is that smoking stopped me, almost completely. Heart attack at the age of 46.

Dont smoke !!!

Shanny, I don't log in very often so I missed your reply. Yes, I stopped smoking on August 8, 2008. Strange to say, quitting seemed impossible, this last time however, I have not had any great difficultly with it. That said, if you really want to quit you will, but you have to be rather unambiguous about wanting to quit.

I Quit smoking just over a year ago, and so glad I did. I smoked for about 20 years, and managed to quite for a 1 1/2 years somewhere in that. But when it got around to quitting later, it seemed like I couldn't do it. I was smoking just over a pack a day.

Then I discovered 'vaping' and it got me off smoking all together. I don't smell like smoke anymore and don't have to feel guilty about it.

For anyone that's looking to quit smoking, I suggest vaping. I've had the occasional real smoke and it's just disgusting, I can't even do it anymore.
