KNOW YOUR ENEMY - KNOWLEDGE IS POWER!

Blog Post created by Thomas3.20.2010 on Jan 15, 2013

So I'm a day late on this Blog which I generally post on Mondays when possible. The reason for Monday is that's the time most folks determine to make positive changes in their lives and come to sites like this to find support and advice. The purpose of this Blog is to inform you of what's new in the tobacco and smoking cessation news world.  I've discovered that in my own Quit Journey (2 Years, 9 Months, 3 Weeks, 5 Days) that the better I know the enemy (No, not the Nico-Demon who is and always will be simply the Addictive part of me) Nicotine itself  - the stronger my Focus on Nicotine FREE Livng and my Determination to Live Addiction FREE for LIFE! I wish the same FREEDOM for each and every one of you whether Newbie or relapsed! You CAN do this! Never Quit the Quit! 

I'm late by one day because I've been sick....again... a result of 20 off and on years of smoking less than 10 sickerettes a day! I have COPD which is no joke if you like to BREATHE! If you think you smoke very little or for a short period of time and thus, are beating the odds, I suggest you check out my Blog called Beating the Odds (use the search window to find it) ! Sick again! And that's my plight brought on by my "best friend!" Be smarter than me and quit before it's too late! I hope this info helps you to Qit and Protect your Quit every single day! You DO have a choice!
