We must choose to stick with N.O.P.E ~ Not One Puff Ever &  vigilance N.M.W ~ No Matter What ~ in order to live a life of Freedom! We've all got our own reason for quitting smoking, mine was my health finding out that I have mild copd was a real eye opener for me even with my hubby Mark quitting smoking 2 and a half months before I did because of health concerns after smoking for 42 years I was thrilled that he quit BUT I continued to smoke outside we hadn't smoked in the house for around 15 years I honestly thought I was just fine that smoking related illnesses happpened to other people NOT ME like duh! I was told by a specialist in June of 2014 that I had copd which made me realize that I wasn't invincible so I got on line and found this site and read everything I could find and kept on reading and set up a quit date BUT when It came I wasn't ready so I reset it for the 14th of July 2014 and told myself the night before that no matter what I was never ever going to pick up another cigarette as long as I live and as hard as it was at times I made it through with the help of this community and so can anyone and everyone with commitment and perseverance you will succeed in living a Smokefree Life! Our family friends and even our wallet will benefit BUT the best part is our health because we're hopefully giving ourselves the best quality of LIFE possible THE GIFT OF LIFE ......
