After 19 years as a 2 pack a day smoker, I am proud to say that I have not had a single puff in over 18 months. I had tried and failed to quit numerous times, but that was because I didn't understand what I was up against. Not until I found a great website run by some experienced and dedicated nicotine cessation therapists. If you struggle with nicotine in any form, I strongly suggest checking out the following links. The articles and videos covered every issue I had and being informed made all the difference. It is so great to breath now. Food tastes better, flowers smell better, I feel better and have a lot more disposable income. You just don't know what you're missing.
Damn, 2nd response to one of your posts! Go figure...
W-A-Y T-O G-O !!!
Thank you for your commitment and may you succeed on your course forever. We all need examples of what's possible, of toughness, courage and even faith - and any other handy and applicable virtues by the way. <g>

Good for you! If you are on the Freedom forums I am known as Garden Joe. I don't go there often anymore, but I do try to pop in from time to time to help encourage the newbies.
Why the name Garden Joe? Because fear of sickness in myself wasn't enough to get me to quit, but when I found out I could transmit tobacco mosaic virus to my tomatoes it was just too much. So I wouldn't quit to save myself, but I did to save some annual vegetables. Crazy right.
John, if he is like most goveners, salary is only a tiny portion of his income so I wouldn't sweat it.
