    I've been smoke free for over 2 years now. Best of luck to you! It's possible to quit but you must really want to quit. The best way I believe is cold turkey. I've tried quitting before using the gum and patch but started back up again. I also don't really think I had it in me. Having a baby was the motivation I needed to finally kick the habit. I don't recommend having a baby just to quit smoking.

    Just a quick update...
    It's been three weeks now and I'm holding on!
    Haven't been around as much as I used to because it's hard to type in a straitjacket but I'm still smoke free.
    How about you Luke?
    Still going well I hope?

    That's so great to hear, hooray for you!

    I've been smoke-free since March 15 2007, and it still seems like a miracle each and every day. It's so wonderful to be free of the horrible degrading addiction words cannot even begin to describe it.

    Congrats Marc, all that thick smelly gunk in your arteries is beginning to dissipate and the blood is beginning to get through easier now. Walking up stairs is requiring less breath and people around you are beginning to treat you less like a leper as the smell of stale cigarettes is no longer wafting from your clothes and hair. Your bank account is beginning to swell from the fortune you have decided to save and many things you thought you could not afford are beginniong to look like a possibility. Life in general is improving and there's bounce in your step. You want to keep up the good work - right?

    Good for you!! A few weeks ago in school, I learned that every cigarette you smoke takes away about 7 minutes of you lifespan. Meaning, if you skip smoking that cigarette, you'll live for 7 more minutes more. I'm serious!

    Ok, whatever ya say. I'll stay away from you...!
