Hi Fellow Quitters,
This is a very informative site. But, I am a bit lost in how to navigate it all. I am actually a longtime quitter, knock wood. The quit site I am using is will be closing down soon. I have been helped by others, and I also like to give back.
Thank you for being here. 😊

I appreciate your warm welcome. Much obliged. And your bold font makes these eyes happy. Thanks for the heads up about the meter. Knock wood, and ever vigilant, I will be 15 years clean, this November. Who'd a thunk it? I never thought it was possible.
I was determined, but for me it was hell for a while, panic attacks I believe, etc. I did slip 2 x, not full blown relapses and went back to the quit, but with the help from others, thankfully. Some people quit and that's that, but not me. It is a process, that will get better. The only way out is t>h>r>o>u>g>h.
Being in a quit community greatly helps, I use tools, such as Allen Carr's book, The Easy Way to Quit Smoking. I use the 5 D's, H.A.L.T., being aware of triggers, frustrations, how the body is readjusting, such as with its acetylcholine. Also I used NRT's, that's not for everyone, but it worked for me. I used the patch and a lozenge, I stuck with the program and even did it longer as research found that helped.
Trying to learn how to use this site. Also I just updated my Chrome, maybe that helps?
Thank you to all that read this. I believe we do this together. Looking forward to meeting you all.
Tim, thank you much again for responding. It makes the world of difference.
ktq - keep the quit.
A pre-celebration for your Halloween quit! I'll even HoooooooooWWWWWWWWLLL in your honor!

Every moment quit is precious. Time passes, let's pass it being quit.
Hi Hot SiO2 / Jim and Ashley,
Thank you so very much for the warm welcome! I would like to address more of what you wrote, but it's been a little hectic at the moment. Actually this week, I've been meeting with a quitter I met on line a long time ago; she is from out of state. We've been enjoying each other's company. She'll have 5 years, knock wood, come January.
Could you tell me what SSC stands for?
SCC Stop Smoking Center What da you know? :)
