I tried to quit more than a dozen times but was completely addicted. After my son was born, I knew I had to stop for good. I successfully quit through Freedom From Smoking and a year later got certified as a Facilitator. Now I help others quit.

My personal journey was to have lifestyle changes—to quit smoking and lose weight at the same time. Since my Freedom From Smoking quit date, I have lost 80 pounds and hiked 3,500 miles. The difference in my physical and mental health is tremendous.

I smoked for over 35 years and here I am, 2.5 years smokefree and hopefully many more to come! I feel so much better, I breathe better, and my blood pressure is the best it's been in over 30 years. I'm so glad I gave Freedom From Smoking a shot.

I’m glad I never gave up trying to quit. Change takes time and practice. Smoking cessation programs work. Not only is the smoker given tools to succeed but by engaging with others who are trying to achieve the same goal they build a support system.
