Hi Dawnie111. Welcome to the Ex. I'm on 24 DOF as of today, so I'm also a Newbie. I'm using assistance though (all I can get). Nicotrol inhalers, Wellbutin, smoking cessation class and the Ex. Have tried quitting numerous times, but I am feeling more positive this time. Finding this site has really helped me a great deal. Read lot's of advice, techniques, and what other's are experiencing.

Dawnie1111 Not everyone puts in their quit date when they quit but you can search in the directory to find this kind of thing. I find if you put the day before and ending the quit date, it will show you the people who have chosen that specific date to quit.
March 26th 2018 quitters MichelleDiane patann Lesjakes appear to have the same date as you...
