Freedom from Tobacco is an excellent site. There is a lot of good medical information about what happens to our bodies when we quit. They also have
remedies to help through some of the usual symptoms. It is truly worth looking at their information. Many good ideas about how to prepare to

You can join this site at any time. It also has information about quitting and preparing to quit. This site can be fun. They have rewards you work
for and all of the others who are experiencing quitting along with you cheer you on, cry with you when you are down, or hit you aside the head when
you need it. lol
There are many different forums and clubs so that finding one that suits you is easy. You do make some strong friends from this site. This site is

This site is really good for steps in preparing to quit. I didn't find much help otherwise.
If you haven't quit yet it is worth your while to set a quit date and then go through some of the steps to quit. You can use a combination of all
the above sites.
The sites have what is called a "gadget" you enter your smoking information and it keeps track of how long you have not smoked, how many cigarettes
you have not smoked and how much time you have extended you life.
All three of these sites are free. With the help of the information provided and the on going support of others who are quitting too, I now have been
smoke free, not one puff, for 9 months.
It really is worth the effort in money and life saved. Life is much less
stressful. Believe that or not. Maybe you won't believe it now, but you will if you quit.
I am still a member of Quit Net. A nicotine addict is always in recovery.
