We want to caution our newest members to read here and learn as much as you can and not to be so quick to throw in quitting advice that you have picked up
elsewhere--either at other sites or in your real world encounters. We want people to come to Freedom to first learn how to quit before they shift their
attentions on how to teach people to quit. Although in truth, the real reason people should be here should always be to enforce his or her own personal quit
even more than influencing others--each and every members quit and life depends on this goal. Any advice that is telling people that they must somehow shift
their way of life in order to start or sustain a quit may not be accurate for most people.
The bottom line of quitting is, the sooner people realize that everything they could do as a smoker they can now do as an ex-smoker--the sooner they
realize that there is life without smoking. They will also find out there may be many things that they can now do better without smoking and that life is
basically better on many fronts from them having quit smoking. The faster people get back to their life--the sooner they will break triggers and habits and
the sooner they will realize that they can do anything as an ex-smoker as long as they always remember to never take another puff!

One common phrase used in many drug recovery programs is use of the term or more accurately the acronym of H.A.L.T.
H.A.L.T. stands for Hungry, Angry, Lonely and Tired
The way the phrase is generally used is that a person should not let themselves ever become too hungry, angry, lonely and tired or they may very
well risk putting their quit's in jeopardy. We don't generally abide by this philosophy at Freedom, because we feel that there are times when
people cannot avoid encountering one or more of these situations.
The idea that you cannot allow yourself to get too hungry, angry, lonely and tired is an impossibility under certain situations--like at times
of natural disasters, famines, times of war, and a host of other conditions that people may find themselves in throughout their life times.
People need to accept that there will be times because of external circumstances that they may become too hungry, angry, lonely or tired. What
ex-smokers have to realize is just because they find themselves in one or more of these situations, there is no reason that these feelings are going to
automatically put their quits on the line.
We have a few strings that address this issue in different
Life goes on without smoking
There is no legitimate reason to relapse
We understand why you relapsed
Life is going to go on after quitting and there will be times when you may very well find yourself in situations that leave you feeling too
hungry, angry, lonely and tired. You should just be aware that none of these times will leave you having to once again feed an active nicotine addiction
as long as you remember when under these tough times as well as under all good times that you made and are sticking to a personal commitment to never
take another puff.
