You will never Regret it! Great to be a Non-Smoker!
Hello everybody, I am sharing my story with you as per Quit Now's encouragement. I used to smoke 15 to 20 cigarettes per day for 34 years. I had to smoke but hated it most of the time for all the typical reasons. Attempted to quit many times in the past, but those attempts never lasted more than a couple of days each time. This time around I used Quit Now + Allen Carr's "The Easy Way to Stop Smoking" together. I found this book just 3 weeks before I quit. Worked for me perfectly this time. Have not had a smoke since January 1, 2018. Didn't even apply any patches at all which I did obtain from London Drugs just a week before my Quit Day. Cravings were only strong for the first few days. No desire to pick up another cigarette again for the rest of my life. Can't even stand the smell of cigarettes now when I walk past smokers. The Easy Way really worked for me. My lungs can finally take in the right amount of air they are supposed to when I go for my runs. No coughing at all during or after runs anymore. Feel great waking up in the mornings. Feel awesome to be a non-smoker: what a normal me should have been for the past 34 years had I not picked up that first cigarette when I was just 14. Thank you Quit Now, my Quit Coach Alexandra, and Allen Carr's amazing book.
