~~The book to read is not the one that thinks for you but the one that makes you think.~~  Harper Lee


I am curious about whether or not new quitters actually read the links that people offer in their comments.  Do you read the Best of Ex?  Do you read things like "What to Expect in the First Four Months"?  (Sorry, Dale, I don't know how to link)

While I love that you come here and post about your brand new quit or your plan to quit, it is so effective if you do some reading as well!!  Not because I don't want to respond to your questions or support you when you're anxious, but because knowledge is power!!  The more you know, the more you will be able to create a long lasting, never ending, forever quit

So many elders have taken the time to write exquisite words of wisdom for you.  Brilliant insight into how to quit successfully, what to pay attention to, and how to manage your new lifestyle.  So many other elders write about what addiction means, what COPD is, and how to maintain recovery.  We have elders who post energizing, enthusiastic blogs and those who bring you to tears with their compassion and kindness.

We can't tell you how to quit.  There is no magic 'one size fits all' formula.  But a successful quit takes a little bit of courage mixed with a whole lot of knowledge and shakes it with some bravery and self-insights to blend a combination of a strong, flexible quit. 

So go ahead and read some!!  You'll be surprised what you learn from the insights of others!!
