When I first made the cards up, I honestly thought I was going to have to refer to them the rest of my life. I figured I would wear them out and have to make new ones, so I kept a copy in my Word file. A few weeks ago, I was cleaning my office and realized that I so don't need these cards. I didn't have the heart to throw them out, so I started a WhyQuit folder and placed them there to have available to give to the next person needing them.
I do hope that whoever the original authors are of all of these inspirational quotes know who they are, and check in every now and then to receive our thanks! There are so many priceless quotes. Many thanks to all who have contributed through the years!

Abstinence from smoking reduces incisional
wound infection: a randomized controlled trial.
LT, Karlsmark T, Gottrup F.
Wound Healing Center and the dagger Department of Surgical Gastroenterology,
Bispebjerg University Hospital, Copenhagen Hospital Corporation, Denmark.
show that the incidence of postoperative wound complications is higher in
smokers than nonsmokers. In this study, we evaluated the effect of abstinence
from smoking on incisional wound infection.
METHODS Seventy-eight healthy subjects
(48 smokers and 30 never-smokers) were included in the study and followed for
15 weeks. In the first week of the study, the smokers smoked 20 cigarettes per
day. Subsequently, they were randomized to continuous smoking, abstinence with
transdermal nicotine patch (25 mg per day), or abstinence with placebo patch.
At the end of the first week and 4, 8, and 12 weeks after randomization,
incisional wounds were made lateral to the sacrum to excise punch biopsy
wounds. At the same time identical wounds were made in 6 never-smokers. In 24
never-smokers a wound was made once. All wounds were followed for 2 weeks for
development of wound complications.
RESULTS A total of 228 wounds were
evaluated. In smokers the wound infection rate was 12%
(11 of 93 wounds) compared with 2% (1 of 48
wounds) in never-smokers (P <0.05). Wound infections were
significantly fewer in abstinent smokers compared with continuous smokers after
4, 8, and 12 weeks after randomization. No difference between transdermal
nicotine patch and placebo was found.
CONCLUSIONS Smokers have a higher wound
infection rate than never-smokers and 4 weeks of abstinence from smoking
reduces the incidence of wound infections.
