Hi. My name is Roz and I'm a NON-smoker!
I quit smoking April 13, 2003, and have not picked up a cigarette since that date (except to throw away the half a pack I kept in the cupboard for "emergencies" that never happened).
The program I followed was given to me by a sweet lady from church who was a great source of encouragement to me. She never nagged; in fact, after her initial "pitch" of the program, she never said a word except to tell me how proud she was of me.
I am mortified to know that I reeked of smoke for so many years, and didn't know it. I have developed a true aversion to cigarettes.
Now, you have to understand that I started smoking when I was 11 years old, and smoked until I was 42. There were a few times I "tried" to quit, and even a period of about 6 years that I quit completely in my mid-20's. However, this is the first time I've actually found the practice distasteful, and have passed out the information on the program to other people trying to quit!
I feel so blessed to have "seen the light" on this particular matter, and taken the steps necessary to clean up my body and my life. I will be forever grateful to the dear lady who helped me, and eternally grateful to God for answering my prayers for help.
Anyone seeking to quit smoking can use this same program. I'd be happy to post it here on the Forum.
