I Quit Today

Live For Today

This morning I started my morning when I logged on to my computer doing the same thing I do every morning, I quit nicotine.  I’ve been doing it for 7+ years now so you would think I would not need to start my…

The Day My Attitude Changed

Light Bulb

I was lucky enough early in my quit to have a moment, a moment that would change the way I thought about quitting forever.  I consider myself lucky to have had it because I am not sure I would have ever said I am…
