Psychological counseling and support :


Leah (38 year) - Nationality: USA - September 28, 2002

"After trying to stop smoking four times previously, I have now stopped for over eight months and feel wonderful. I credit three things for this success: 1. My best friend told me that stopping smoking was the hardest thing she had ever done, but that it was worth it. 2. The support of other people in a stop smoking website; it was important to know I was not alone. 3. Nicotine gum helped seperate the quit into two stages - emotional, and then physical. As one of my friends said, nicotine gum or the patch is a "clean needle". Kicking an addiction makes you feel strong and capable. I feel a bouyant optimism I have not felt in ten years. Thank you for this excellent website."
