I smoked for 13 years. With much love and support from friends, family and QuitNet, I've successfully been smoke-free for 2 years now.
There is no point in quitting smoking until you are truly ready. I tried 6 times before I successfully quit. For too long I smoked for stress relief, when in fact smoking cigarettes stressed me out more. I always found the testimonials on QuitNet inspiring - just seeing the testimonial quote on my daily QuitNet email helped me through some tough times. The tough times never go away - you just get stronger.

In the past I quit for other people: my boyfriend, mother, future children. Finally I realized that my quit wasn't going to work until I quit for myself.
