10 years ago I quit smoking and it's one of the most positive things I've ever done in my life. I had stumbled across WhyQuit/Freedom and read for a couple of days before I finally left my cigarettes behind me for good. Thanks go out to John, Joel, Joanne and all who put all this information out there. For me the key was all of the learning and support that can be found here. Joel's articles were (and are) nothing short of a complete education about smoking, nicotine and addiction. Thousands of us freedom finders have quit simply by educating ourselves and never taking another puff, and thousands more will make the same choice. I don't miss smoking, I don't crave it, I don't want it, and I don't occupy my precious time with thinking about it. It's really a whole new life when it isn't encumbered with smoking.
Thank you all.
