Quotes from quitting smoking stories

"I will NEVER understand why any young people would take up the addiction nowadays, with what we know about tobacco's addictive and poisonous properties. No, kids, it does NOT make you look cool, sexy, or sophisticated. You're an idiot if you think otherwise. But it WILL make you look older - about the time you're wanting to look younger, your face will be turning into the wrinkled visage of a hag. And, yes - if you smoke, you stink."

"It was the best thing I ever did. I must have tried to quit a dozen times before I achieved success, so even if you have tried and failed, even many times before, success is still possible."

"I have been smoking for 21 years. The other day I saw a little kid smoking and I was like what the heck. Kids are smoking at young ages. This worries me. After I saw that, I knew I had to quit."

"I feel like I’ve lost the last 10 years of my life to smoking... and I refuse to let it take another single minute of my life."

"… I have wanted to smoke at least one time every day. It's scary when I think about a chemical (or anything for that matter) having such a mighty strong hold on my body and mind. Quitting smoking was the most difficult thing I have ever done. It was also the best."

"The one thing that I am NOT going to do is tell anyone what they should or should not do. I can never, ever know what causes others to do what they do, however, I do believe that wake up calls are all we need to put our life into perspective. In numerous ways we are blessed and have so much to look forward to, that when we sit down and realize that all of our time here is short and something so bad for your health and not to mention costly could take you away from those who love and cherish you the most."

"For everyone who is trying to quit, good luck! And if you are thinking about starting up again, don't!"
