I quit through Smokenders in 1978.
I attended Smokenders after I read about it in the paper. Immediately after I enrolled I wanted to back out because I knew I would not be able to really quit. I was smoking 1-2 packs/day, attending college part time with a house full of 3 boys and my husband. The moderator of the first meeting knew exactly that I was thinking that as she was an ex-smoker herself. I decided to stay since I was able to continue smoking through the meetings and had put some money on the program fee. I enjoyed the program, attended the meetings and realized my desire to smoke was changing. My belief in realizing I could actually quit seemed in my reach! I did my homework, followed the program leadership and still had doubts but forged ahead. I was so proud of my determination. By the end of the program, after smoking my last cigarette….I was done. I had conquered my smoking addiction. I have never looked back. In the last 43 years I have thought about cigarettes on 2 random occasions for few seconds…thought, not craved. I smiled at those thoughts! I have had many successes in my life…scholarships, leadership accomplishments, career highs, wonderful family life…Quitting smoking is my greatest accomplishment….it is what I am most proud of ( my kids are not in this category!) I sometimes dream I have resumed smoking and wake up with such a feeling of disappointment and devastation….until I realized it was just a bad dream. If you work this program it will work for you. People said I could never quit cigarettes because I enjoyed them so much. I did enjoy them….but not smoking far surpasses that enjoyment! I’ll stop now….I should be in sales…
The best ever!!
I tried quitting so many, many times starting with cold turkey several times, hypnosis and other suggestions from other people. None of them worked. Finally, while working at a hospital, I knew a doctor and a physical therapist who went through the SMOKENDERS program (this was back in the 1970’s when participants had to physically attend meetings) and both succeeded. The next time the program was offered in my area I signed up, went to the meetings, and stopped smoking on August 19, 1975 and never smoked again. I can’t emphasize enough how grateful I am for what SMOKENDERS did for me. Thank you so, so much.
Been smoke free since 11/11/1977
This program really works. I’d be wealthy if I had banked the $ I’ve saved since stopping.
40+ YEARS AND GOING STRONG,
Yesterday someone on Twitter was asking for a way to help her daughter quit smoking. I told her about my successful experience with SMOKENDERS, having quit on November 1, 1979. I haven’t seen anything about your program all these decades (though I’ve often told others about how it helped me), didn’t realize you were still around, but I just Googled you and here you are! Your program saved my life. Never picked up another cigarette. I’m going to try to find the list and let her know you’re still around, and I hope she and her daughter will look into it.
Feeling so free!
I am looking forward to celebrating my 42nd birthday as an ex-smoker! I feel so free since I completed the Smokenders course
After smoking 2 packs per day for 25 years, I quit using Smokenders. As a professional who has spent his life studying and treating addictions, I remain impressed by the soundness and ingenuity of Smokenders
Proud to quit
I am more proud of quitting smoking than almost anything else I have done! Thank you Smokenders!
