Here are the steps to freedom and what you can expect on your journey to freedom!.

Step 1   DECIDE TO QUIT (the big first step)

Step 2   Get through the first week. (the most difficult time)

Step 3   Get through the first month. (the most uncomfortable time inclused the 1st week -Your body/brain is still adjusting in a major way)

Step 4   Getting through No Mans Land (130 days + or -) The minimal unlearning smoking time.

             This is the time many will go back due to overconfidence and/or unexpectedly strong cravings.

             this is where the term "The only way out is through" needs to be your reigning thought.

Step 5   First Year Smoke Free. You are now in the 6% club. 1st set of emotional & physical seasons down

Step 6   Second Year Smoke Free 2ndset of emotional and physical seasons completed.

              (the relapse rate drops to 4% after 2 years)

Step 7   Lifetime Smoke Free.No  Longer Controlled By Thoughts Of Smoking

(watch the drinking. It can kill your quit at any step)
