Five years ago I began my journey to freedom from smoking, and I have never regretted that decision. It is by far the best thing that I have ever done for myself. It wasn’t easy but after discovering this site a few days into my quit, I learned that it is doable and started believing that is was possible. I spent a lot of time here reading and educating myself about this addiction. And I decided that I wanted what so many people here had achieved – true freedom from this addiction. So I stuck around – and I learned from the elders, and I learned from quitters just a little bit ahead of me, and I even learned from people who relapsed. I saw it over and over again. People would relapse and would often struggle to get started again. I knew that I never wanted to have to restart the clock, and many times that was what kept me moving forward. So if you are having a bad day and are considering smoking just one, just remember that tomorrow is a new day – choose to remain smoke free – it is a decision that you will not regret!
