Quit?

Blog Post created by Jennifer-Quit-05-01-14 on Apr 13, 2018

I quit smoking May 1, 2014 - that is my quit date and will be forever.  Even though I used the patch for 6 weeks - May 1, 2014 is MY quit date and no one will ever convince me otherwise.  You quit begins when you put your last cigarette out - and has nothing to do with using a prescription drug or NRT as an aid.

 

Do not let anyone make you feel that your quit is diminished in any way because you did not go cold turkey.  I admire folks that are able to quit going cold turkey, and I will never get on this site and push NRT on anyone.  Cold turkey is good - but it is NOT the only way.  

 

If NRT is in your plan - include in that that plan a step down schedule.  

 

Wishing you all a happy smoke-free day!
