I didn't know this board existed, so poked my nose in to see what was going on. I quit 14 years ago after ten years of failed attempts. The hardest thing I've ever done, but worth it.

I'm a Smokenders failure (twice) and I finally white knuckled it. I have a friend who quit through the American Cancer Society program -- at that time it was $50, but I'm sure it's still nominal. They don't try to scare you with the health aspects, they take for granted that you know that stuff and you're there because you want to quit.

One last thing: The Cancer Society says that if you go back to smoking, come back to the program and keep coming until you're successful -- no recriminations. It takes some of us longer than others.

Good luck to everybody.
