Blog Post created by Thomas3.20.2010 on Apr 1, 2013

Good Morning, All! Happy Easter Monday (and April Fool's Day)! Today we're having very springlike rain and warmer weather. I'm so grateful to all of you who sent messages of Easter Joy throughout Holy Week! I was occupied at my job and with my Family - all had a Blessed time! 

Now, it's time for KNOW YOUR ENEMY. If you are new, here are articles from current news items that I use to fortify my Quit and yours and  to encourage those who haven't quit - think about doing so TODAY! May you all gain some knowledge that gives you the Power to overcome Nicotine Addictin for LIFE!
