    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    The CDC is a wonderful resource of information and support services, including; free quit coach services, if you want to stop smoking. It also provides information for helping you explain to kids why you should never smoke.

    Hi Anon_26987,

    Stopped about 7 years ago, and so glad I did. My children also don't want to start that habit.

    I stopprd smoking cold turkey 27 years ago when I reached 60 cigarettes per day ... The hard part is knowing that I am addicted (I still crave a cigarette when others light up) but for nothing in this WORLD will I go back to being a smoker. Heck, I can smell cigarette smoke in a car when I overtake it on the motorway ... OTOH, I am also the world's worst non-smoker. I have zero tolerance.

    I am very happy to be able to say that there are virtually no smokers in my family and friends (when I started, nearly everyone smoked ...).

    Keep up the good work!!!
