Hello to all newbies and welcome to the forums
And well done on your decisions to quit smoking. It may be a bit of a rollercoaster ride for you at times but hang on tight and it will be one of the best decisions you have made Many people on the forums used to say that to me and I used to think 'yeah right' but they were right.
Share your experiences with others on this forum and read as much as you can on nicotine addiction and quitting smoking. There is a good link in my signature and plenty of other good links in other peoples signatures.
If like most of us, you have tried quitting before, then try not to dwell on any previous quit attempts. Perhaps just take from them the where it 'went wrong' so the same mistake/s aren't made again.
I am also curious as to why so many people quit in October. Obvioulsy it doesn't matter what month people quit in but it seems to be quite a popular month. Last October the Octoquits were formed and most of them are entering the Penthouse now (the virtual place where you go once you have been quit for 12 months). October just seems to be a really popluar and successful quit month. There possibly is no answer to why it was just an observation on my part.
Anyway goodluck to you all and I look forward to reading your posts as you move up the boards.
