Hi! I came here after visiting Mrs. Miles blog. I just want to congratulate Barry for not smoking. I know it is hard. Just keep it up. 1st week is the hardest. It will get easier. I smoked for 21 years and just quit February 4th. I am so glad I did. I never want to smoke again. I want to leave a few web sites for him that may encourage him to continue to be smoke-free.
All of these sites along with God, helped me quit. Maybe not all these websites will be useful for you but use the ones you feel right about. Google for more if needed. And don't forget prayer. God is better than these websites but they may help encourage you for a smoke-free journey. I think the more information you can learn about quitting smoking the more successful you will be.
