Where does she work? She had way more restraint than I do I used to barely make it to the front door of my building.:) This is the best hub I have read yet. Informative but extremely entertaining.

Hi Jamster, 

Thanks for commenting ..iI guess that some people like yourself just set their minds to it...It took more than that for me.

You are right your mind set is a part of it!!

This is a certified non-smoker from Lela's class in 1993. I am afraid

one day of no smoke will not cut it...attend Lela's class now...don't wait

anymore...do it now.....a graduate....

It is all about the mindset from cigarettes are a bad habit, to the concept that you are ADDICTED to nicotine, Once I made that jump, I was able to quit successfully.

Great Hub Lela, and I for one am finding your Nicotine Solutions course really beneficial. I just can't wait for the actual quit date to arrive now as I am so confident that this time I can actually do it because of the fantastic support, and assignments you are providing us all with.
