Find your own way! You are as unique as your fingerprint and therefore you should reconsider how YOUR path to the goal looks like. Collect as much information as possible and create your battle plan. Get help from blog participants who want to be on your side and share their experiences with you. The happiness and sense of freedom in the smoke-free Nirvana is worth all the effort. Then you can believe me!
At least once a week I checked in the look-back whether somebody had written some new words. I really did read many many look-back's ... NOW I AM SO FAR AND I CAN HARDLY BELIEVE IT!
Stay on it! Pull the thing through! Everyone can do it. It does not happen for everybody in an equal weight and light, but you can make it. Log in here, make sure to read through the experiences others have made. Write if you have any questions! ...
If you really, really want ... then you’ll make it!
I'll keep all my fingers crossed for you!

Be serious about your cessation right from the beginning. Half-hearted attempts such as "let's see how far I get" lead only to frustrating failures.
The way up is sometimes steep and rocky. Be prepared for it. To believe after 14 days, now I've done it is an absolute illusion. There are still difficult passages but they can be mastered too.
And if you find that it is once again unbearably heavy, then remember, how hard you fought for the first cough free deep drag.
This time you're fighting for you, for your health, for your families, for your finances and your self-confidence.
Any non-smoked cigarette is a step towards the right direction!
I want to recommend newcomers to the page to begin fast with the project and not to be confused by the many tips and advices. Ultimately, everyone has to find his own way, and it’s a good one if it leads you to success. Do not let the reports of other participants discourage you, when they write how hard they find it. The effects of nicotine addiction vary a lot and everybody experiences the withdrawal symptoms very differently. Participants write mostly at the time when it’s really bad. Then they cry for support and encouragement. That should not discourage anyone but to encourage yourself to benefit and join in. The trip is worth it in any case.
Every day without a cigarette counts and is great for body and mind. If you stumble once, gets up and try again. Each failed attempt also has a learning effect and the next attempt can then be perhaps the last. I wish all those on their first step towards non-smoking the necessary stubbornness and good luck on their way. The health and your wallet will thank you as well as a much better awareness of life and self-esteem.
