    Hello current and former quitters,

    We thought it may be helpful to have a post where everyone contributed with a tidbit on what helped them quit.

    If you were to give 1 piece of advice to anyone quitting, what is your best advice?

    Good idea for a post Jenna Lee. 
    Here is my tidbit. 
    Day 54 smoke free cold turkey .Yay! What has helped me stay strong is an outdoor cigarette disposal cup on my back deck. You know, the plastic cup thingy with the hole in the centre you put your butts in. Anyway I emptied it in the fall and it must have had 80 butts jammed in there mixed with rain water that had also baked in the sun for a few months. I took the lid off and the God awful stench almost make me puke! The contents came out in black, slimey gunks and the smell got worse towards the bottom. It really was one of the worst things I've ever smelled. Anyway, whenever I've had a craving since I quit, I think about that smell, think about that black gunk in my lungs and arteries and visualize taking a sip out of that cup. Craving disappears instantly! That's what has worked for me and will continue to work for me. Just wanted to share.

    That black, slimy gunk sounds awfully disgusting, doesn't it? And probably smelled even worse. 

    Congratulations on 54 days of NOT having that gunk in your lungs and arteries!

    Thanks for sharing, breath20!
