I quit smoking on December 7, 1997. At the time, I was surprised at the lack of support out there for people trying to quit. The cigarettes were for sale at the very front of every store - the stop-smoking-aids were always hidden at the back. There were no "rewards" available - like a little button saying "I did it" or some such thing. At last, the sane, wonderful Fools have come up with a way to encourage and reward those trying this most difficult task. In my opinion, if you really want to become a non-smoker, then you have a good chance of success. But if you are trying to quit because "it's bad for you" or because your spouse, your kids, your boss thinks you should, or because of any other "should" message, then you probably won't make it. Best advice: go to the airport and take a seat opposite the smoker's room. Watch those people for 30 minutes. You'll probably want to quit. Dottie Day
