It happens — people really do quit. Read about a few victories. Every day, people are quitting tobacco. You are not alone. Use this blog to read other stories about those who have quit, their successes and their struggles.

I really enjoy the website that goes along with this program. It’s very personable and everyone is encouraging in the discussion groups and through chat. I really liked having the ability to chat with a real person online.
I STRONGLY, STRONGLY suggest that everyone utilizes every tool available on the website, from the daily pledges, speaking to the Quit Coaches, and reading throughout different threads. One of the most valuable tools that helped and continues to help me is the “Friends” option because you find yourself quickly making friends and being an advocate for others in their pursuit to quit smoking. I absolutely cannot start my day without checking this website.
I’m very pleased with this experience. Thank you all for what you do to help people quit smoking. Hopefully you can help everyone quit smoking because it is so harmful.
I am deeply grateful for the dedication all of you have shown toward me and my progress. You trusted me to do my part and I don’t want to let you down. Bless you for the work you do.
I am just so thankful for this program. It really has made a big change in my life. Not only am I not smoking anymore, I can breathe so much easier. I am not using my inhaler nearly as much as I used to. Thank you…thank you.
I wanted to just send out a huge applause to all of you at the quitline for everything you’ve done to help people like me. I saw the commercials and they motivated me to call in, but it’s through the coaching that I’ve really been able to gain enough confidence to quit and stay committed to this promise to remain a nonsmoker. I love myself a little bit more every day, and I know that if I do struggle you all are just a phone call away. Thank you so very much!
My last cigarette was over a month ago, and I am going to be a nonsmoker for the rest of my life! I just want to thank you all. I couldn’t have done it without you, and the nicotine gum made such a big difference. My grandkids are so happy, and I can keep up with my grandson now!
I have been committed to not smoking for 302 days. My year mark is just around the corner and I am so excited. I have had the best support, and I am telling you encouragement is so important. I have people taking me out for a steak dinner to celebrate my year of not smoking, and I will call you on that day too. Thank you for all of your help.
