I have recently learned that two of my very good friends have also quit smoking cigarettes. This is an awesome thing for them to do for their health. There are links to the left for a couple of good online resources that can help one to kick the habit. I cannot stress though how easy it was for me to quit – because of when and why I did it. I quit on Ash Wednesday, 2006 in order to honor our God. He strengthened me, enabling me to not endure further cravings thus keeping me smoke-free since.
