The title of my "Hint or Tip Title" is the time/date that i stopped smoking. I just finished reading Allen Carr's Easy Way To Stop Smoking and have made the concious decision that i am now a non-smoker.

I dont enjoy smoking, and havent for a long time. i have had success in other quit attempts, but have taken it back up over stupid reasons. I guess i use to label myself as an "Emotional Smoker". My emotional reaction to certain situations use to cause to want a smoke, along with the normal "Smoke and alcohol go hand-in-hand". im not thinking like that anymore. I am now a NON-SMOKER.

I know what makes me believe i want a smoke (the addiction, cause its definately not the taste of them) and i refuse to fall for it this time.

Looking forward to staying smoke free.

Congrats to everyone in the same boat :)

    Congratsulations. I'm still half way through reading the book, but am on day 30...... I admire the way you talk about that you are a non-smoker........... I'm still in ex-smoker mindset...... Need to finish that book I think these holidays :-)

    Thank you :)
    The book is good with the mind aspect of quitting smoking, i wish i was on Zyban though, cause i had really good success with that.
    i have the book on my smartphone so when i have "Cravings" i can refer to the book and it does help. Going strong so far :)
