Recovery is about taking back life, one nicotine use cue and slice at a time. Some web sites teach that you need to change your entire life, including avoiding certain activities and engaging in new ones. Such advice risks leaving quitters with altered lifestyles in which their recovery is so aligned with the recommended changes that any deviation from them brings with it increased risk of relapse. Why lean heavily upon anything other than who we are? If you want to engage in new activities after quitting, fantastic! But take care never to allow any activity to become a substitute for smoking, as its sudden removal could cost you your freedom, healing and possibly your life!Breathe deep, hug hard, live long,John (Gold x11)

We need to be seen as a tool, a source of information of how to quit and how to stay off even more than a source of support. In the technological world a particular website may not always be going 24 hours a day 365 days a year without interruption, or your computer capabilities may not be able to get here at some points in time.
If you have learned our lessons, keep reinforcing your own primary reasons for first wanting to quit, keep reminding yourself why you still don't want to go back and keep our one simple message in your mind at all times, even if you can't read it at the board at the moment, just remembering it will insure that you will do fine. The message is that no matter what seems to go wrong in life that to stay free during it only requires keeping in practice your commitment to never take another puff!"
Just want to add a note here, that there are times like today when WhyQuit.com may be down for technical reasons. When this occurs, try using the backup site www.whyquit.org.
