Welcome to our “The end of smoking website”

You can quit smoking

CRAIGS STORY

I started smoking only 5 years ago , at the crazy age of 42! I had just been through a stressful divorce and to this date I still cannot believe I picked up a cigarette. The habit snowballed from 2 or 3 cigarettes to a full box of 20 and sometimes more a day. Prior to this I was “anti smoking” and extremely fit. A marathon runner, spinning instructor and cross fit junkie.If you had taken me back a few years you would never believe that I would ever pick up a cigarette. I can honestly say the habit got a real hold on me and to this day I struggle. Cigarette smoking is one of the hardest habits to kick.

Why is it so hard to give up:

  1. The nicotine drug is more powerful than we may admit to. When one takes a drag the feel good hormones for a moment calm us and many of us started smoking during stressful times.
  2. The habit itself may start slowly but once a habit is cast into ones sub conscious it becomes very tough to reverse. Its like brushing ones teeth daily, or having your morning cup of coffee. All of these habits are part of our daily routine. Picking up a cigarette can be linked to so many triggers. When we answer a call on our phone. When we have our coffee. When we have eaten something, and often we dont even think about what we are doing
  3. Smoking is not just a physical addiction caused by the powerful drug nicotine, its a mental and physical addiction and requires a remapping of the mind and ones habits

WHY I WANT TO HELP PEOPLE

I want to help people who are struggling with the habit and also allow ex smokers to engage our audience and assist in the global fight to end the nastiest habit most of us hate.

Our health is at risk and if we can help people feel better, live longer and engage in better habits to alleviate stress then I feel our work is valuable. We dont aim to judge anyone struggling to kick the habit of smoking but rather encourage them and share different methods that may assist in the fight to give up cigarettes and take ones life back.

The honest truth is , its hard, but its worth giving up smoking  in the long run.

So many have conquered the smoking habit and we want to hear from as many people as possible who may be a source of encouragement and help to those who battle.

THE GOAL OF MY SITE

Our purpose is to bring an end to smoking for as many people globally as we can. If we all band together and encourage each other with different ideas we can achieve great success.

All the best,

  1. I found your site very interesting, so I will describe a little bit more my view about it.
    The first thing I want to mention is the name of URL which sounds very clear and you can understand what it is about at first moment.
    The content is also described very well. By my opinion the topic is very interesting and popular. Also, very good point is that you can actually help people who want stop smoking. Anyway, you just keep on writing content about this topic. Probably you`ll have some new ideas and then just write it down.
    Even I`m also a starter at making web pages it is easier to look and comment other people`s pages.
    Your web page will definitely look better if you will put some photos on the web page. It is recommendable that photos are connected with your page content, but of course it is not necessary. Feel free to show some creativity. Perhaps you can start just with some cover photo and then while you publish more posts, you choose what photos you`ll put for every single post.
    On the sidebar it would be great to put some categories about which you are writing about. This will be more useful when you`ll have much posts, but anyway. I can say that when I visit one website I usually check the categories and then choose something what I found interesting.
    Your website is at the beginning so I wish you a good luck and take your time.

  2. Like the journey Craig.
    I started a lot younger than you but had to wait a lot longer before i gave up.
    What i find is that you need to want to give up rather than forcing it – so it is a mindgame of trying to convince people that they really want to give up.
    I had a work colleague who gave up due to health reasons – he started again a couple of years later ‘due to stress’ he still smokes to date – he is not ready to give up.
    people don’t want to be told what to do or think so it is a method of having them think it is their idea that they want to give up that will work.
