WOW! It's been a year(365) days of not smoking, I made it into the 6% club!!! It seems like yesterday when I signed onto this website. This site was why I succeeded.It gave me educational tools and support from others going through the same addiction. The blogs of advice on how to deal with quitting set me up with a process to follow. I would read, "If I can do it, you can do it" and it's true. The beginning is a challenge. My biggest tip was when I got a urge or craving is to WAIT. The urge will pass. Stay away from your triggers. Go on website daily and educate yourself, and read all the blogs. Doing this in the beginning is important, make it a priority. Once you get through NML(No Mans Land) about 130 days you are well on your way to being a non-smoker.It does get easier with time. Set goals and stay focused.Quitting smoking will be the best thing you have ever done for yourself. Forget the excuses and justifying why you can smoke, Smoking is bad and will kill you. Just Quit!.I will continue to check-in periodically and I want to give a big thank you to all the elders for their support and help this past year. I wish you the best of luck on your quit, JUST DO IT!!!

Remember N.O.P.E (Not one puff ever) and SINAO-Smoking is not an option.
