Thanks for the compliments. I know that it helped me a great deal. Every time I discover a new link I can change it into a new situation but then without a cigaret. Another good thing is: It makes me so much happier that I don't have to smoke anymore. I'm glad that I can help other people.

Hi all, The first morning after I quit I got up and wanted my morningcoffee. Then I thought that I would rather have tea, because I never drink tea and I discovered that there was a link inside my head: coffee - cigaret. I took tea and guess what? No problem at all. Tea and a cigaret was not a link in my brain. As you think about that you will see that every cigaret has it's own link. Talking on the phone, sitting in the same chair as always did the same for me, there was another link. Now when I'm on the phone I sit in my old chair but the link between that chair and a cigaret is gone now. This knowledge helps me a lot. I don't say that quitting is easy though, but that is not true. I just want to share this with you because for me it works perfect and I make it a game when I discover a link. I even can laugh about it. A friend of mine quitted last week and I told her about my links and she looks at it the same way now and for her it's a big help she says. If this helps someone that would be nice. I'm sorry if my English is not correct sometimes but that's because I'm a Dutchy. Good luck and good health to you all.

Yes Niks, it's so good that this program is here. If we all can help eachother then it is not bad to quit smoking....lol. I only wished I could use the instant messenger here but I can not download that IM thing. That would be really nice for me.

Hi everyone Marie here, Well today we helped our son move into his new home. His girlfriend's family are smokers. I panicked, since today was the first time in 13 days that I would be near smokers. Well well well It did not bother me in the least (so surprised) I said my monologue in my mind and that was that, sure smells good though. Tomorrow is a big day, day 14 talk to you then, and keep the faith [B]My Milage:[/B] [B]My Quit Date: [/B] 6/13/2006 [B]Smoke-Free Days:[/B] 12 [B]Cigarettes Not Smoked:[/B] 192 [B]Amount Saved:[/B] $48 [B]Life Gained:[/B] [B]Days:[/B] 1 [B]Hrs:[/B] 16 [B]Mins:[/B] 32 [B]Seconds:[/B] 5

No i couldnt download the instant messenger either. It takes me to some Microsoft website and I was really confused from there? If anyone knows how to do it, can you let me know?

Thank you dutch That is useful for me to remember. This site helps me SO much. Yesterday I was cutting the hedge, and i always take LOADS of breaks as my reward *smoking breaks* yesterday I didnt.Yesterday was different. I did recognise that this was a link, and to make a different link with it instead. So i came here and posted instead. It is good to be a non smoker [B]My Milage:[/B] [B]My Quit Date: [/B] 6/12/2006 [B]Smoke-Free Days:[/B] 13 [B]Cigarettes Not Smoked:[/B] 328 [B]Amount Saved:[/B] �97.5 [B]Life Gained:[/B] [B]Days:[/B] 1 [B]Hrs:[/B] 3 [B]Mins:[/B] 50 [B]Seconds:[/B] 50

Hi Dutch, I have to agree with you except one thing... Why are you apologizing for your English - it's extremely good! Congrats on your 85 days as well!
