Today, Oct. 1, 2019, makes seven years that I am tobacco free. I remember sitting at my computer and literally crying when I read about members' success with quitting. I didn't think I could do it. But...with the help of this site I did quit. I think the journey to freedom from nicotine is different for each person ....so what worked for me may not be what you find successful. I found that a close daily relationship with this site was mandatory .....I used Nicorette gum for a few months and then switched to Big Red gum to wean myself off the Nicorette. ...that's what I did. I hope whoever reads this finds some help in the knowledge that ....yes ...even you can be successful and quit smoking. Good luck to you!
