The advice I try to give to all newly quitters, is remember that smoking is an addiction. All those thought processes that we go through while learning to go without the nicotine, are learned behaviors from our addiction. Just the brains way of trying to get it’s dose of nicotine. My suggestion for those times in front of the computer when you get to thinking about cigarettes is to use that time doing research on the perils of smoking. It hardens the will against the impulses and will give you something constructive to share with the person who is only thinking about it.

It took me five years to get to the point where I could talk about smoking without that little tingling sensation in the back of my head. The tingling that I would get when I was a smoker and had gone over twenty hours since my last dose.
It is a tough addiction to break but, you can do it. The sooner you do it the better. I can’t offer you anything more than my words of encouragement, but I hope that you get through this and come out an ex-smoker. The one thing that comes to mind when I offer encouragement is that smoking kills 443,000 people a year in the US. Every day millions of people use the products I make, and if even a hundredth of that number died every year from my product we would not be in business.
