"On June 9, 2008, I woke up in the morning and put a patch on instead of smoking, I went through all steps of the patches and that was it. I haven't had a cigarette since."

I smoked 1 to 1 1/2 packs of cigarettes a day for 30 years. I heard the advertisement for 1-800-QUIT NOW and decided to call it. They mailed me the patches. On June 9, 2008, I woke up in the morning and put a patch on instead of smoking, I went through all steps of the patches and that was it. I haven't had a cigarette since.

I encouraged two other people from work to quit. I make people smoke outside my home and truck. I breathe easier and smell so much better. Food tastes better, and I will never smoke again. I thank you so much. I lost my dad to cancer on Feb. 26, 1964. (I also lost) a sister-in-law with breast cancer in 1977. I hope this encourages at least one person to quit. I still have the want for a cigarette, but I now have control of my life, not the cigarettes.
