19 days smoke free and I thought I could never quit!!!!!!

Ok I know its too early to celebrate, but I have not smoked for 19 days now and I feel geat. I was a smoker for 8 years and couldnt imagine a day without smoking. My expeiernce has lead me to believe that honestly its not that hard. Forget all the drugs and ways to help you quit. All it takes is will power. Just stop!

Hang in there, this may help
on my 19th day here. Best way was to realize after the first day, that first cigarrette you crave is an energy sucking oxygen stealing cigarrette. After "quitting" before, I know that first cigarrette isn't the feeling my craving is looking for. That would take several, and who wants several.

Hey all you smokers out there.

My name is Josh and I have taken the time out of my day to share something that I feel is necessary in order for you all to finally kick the habit as I did. After trying patches, chewing gum, hypnotherapy and cold turkey I was recommended a quit smoking book by a friend of my mums who claims it had turned her right of the smokes and she hasn't touched them since. At first i was skeptical as there are many rubbish quit smoking books out there with one aim ( to make money), however, as i continued to grow desperate to finally give them up i decided it couldn't hurt to give it a go, so I did. I bought this quit smoking book on the 17th of January, finished reading it on the 19th along with my last cigarette and i haven't picked up another death stick in 41 DAYS!!!!

I feel it is my duty to at least share my success story with the rest of you, it may not work for you as quickly and efficiently as it did for me, but hey, anything is worth a shot if it could potentially save your life.

The website is thethirdelement.net and I urge all you smokers out there to give yourself a second chance at life as I did. Take control of your life. . . . .

Regards

Josh T
