Don't Be Overcome By YOURSELF

      You are the only one that can make you give up. Figure out what's ahead and move forward.     

      I didn't know anything about quitting when I quit smoking 10+ years ago.

I spent 4 weeks telling myself to wait a little longer when I wanted to smoke.

At the end of those 4 weeks, I had proven to myself that I didn't need to smoke just because the thought had come into my mind.   I had also gone from a pack a day to 5 a day with no problem whatsoever because I never denied myself a smoke.

      I bought a box of patches and off I went.

      My second week, I realized I had forgotten to wear a patch 2 days in a row so I quit using them.  I put a patch in my wallet with a promise I would use it rather than smoke. 

      A couple days after I stopped using the patch I realized I knew nothing of what I was up against.

      I researched the internet and found a fairly user friendly site called Quitnet.

I asked my questions and got the answers from people years ahead of me and I didn't stop asking questions until I was content that there was an end to the initial feelings of emptiness.

      I spent my first year+ on that site and came here to help others in August 2008.
