I am not looking for praise here, I just want to let people know that there is hope. I tried quitting many times before. Last year I set a date and decided to quit. My mind was where I needed it to be and my last cigarette was on December 24th, 2013. I used an e-cig for about a month to curb cravings and then I was done for good. I have very little desire to start again. Keep KNOWING that you can stay stopped and never have that crutch, and the stench, again.
