"What really changed my mind and made me see the reality of what I was doing was when my 4-year-old daughter looked up at me and said "Mommy, I don't want you to die. Please don't breathe more smoke." It was like hitting a brick wall, she was right and I needed to not be as selfish as I was. I want to be around to see her grow up."
"If you're thinking about quitting it's not impossible to do it, but you MUST do it for yourself and be ready to make some serious changes to get there. If you don't give it your full effort to quit then you won't. It doesn't matter how many patches you put on, or how many pieces of gum you use it won't work if you don't want it too."
"What a great feeling to be able to breathe again (and breathe quietly)! The little hints from my Quit Coaches were very helpful."
