Linda (69 years ) - Nationality Canadian - 02 May 2017
"I smoked 2 packs a day for 20 years. I will be forever grateful to the Psychologist who told me "Smoking is a learned behavior and anything learned can be unlearned". The reason I am so grateful is because I think that made the difference in my success after 2 failed attempts. I looked back at how did I learn how to do this? Because he was right. It was just like a child learning to walk. Initially there is a lot of effort and then it gets into the subconscious mind so you don't think about it anymore but if you attempt to stop without looking at how you started, you will always feel deprived, I believe. my quitting process was mostly accomplished in a month and a half but fully done by 3 months. I really unlearned the habit and learned how to be a non-smoker. I have been smoke-free since March 13, 1986 at the age of 38 years. Woo Hoo!"

Bonnie (64 years ) - Nationality Scandinavian - 07 March 2017
"Okay, we have hit the 7 week mark (51 days!) Sound excited? Noooo! I am so depressed, have no craving for a cigarette, because I suck on my straw ! Yep, thats my replacement strategy, don't laugh, it works. I only grab the straw once or twice a week now. Some background...I smoked 51 years, started at age 13 and am now 64 years old. Even with family, friends and doctors pleading with me to quit, my stubbornness prevailed. Then Jan 14, 2017 while enjoying my morning cup of coffee and cigarette a little voice inside me questioned Why?!!! Well I can't give a logical answer I know I casually put the cigarette out and have not had another! Wish I had taken a longer drag on that last puff!! But to the point, it has been 51 days, longest quit ever. Last time I tried my beat partners bought 5 cartons of cigarettes and had them waiting in front of my locker when I showed up for duty, with a note pleading me to go back to smoking. That alone was 30 years ago. As I search articles and testimonials for strength I have yet to read of anyone quitting after 51 years! Even my cardiologist asked 'why?' I do not know, I just knew it was time. Now that I have reached this point and the cravings have all but subsided. I am depressed, sore throat, horrible headache, sleepy and the so called 'poor me - quitters flu!! I have gone from overweight to obese (gained 20 pounds)! Okay that is off my chest! Now, getting back to motivation. I am off the couch and determined again to proceed and no I have not had a puff in 51 days!! Mind you, quitting smoking is not for the faint of heart!! You must have willpower and the patience of a Saint to get through to this point. My motivation at this stage, why would I smoke even one and have to go through this hell again!! I have an addictive personality which has been mentally driving me in the wrong direction but have, with great determination, switched it to the most powerful strategy yet...the best revenge is success!! Could not have done this without the guidance of this website Stop-tobacco!!!! Will post updates as I progress."
