Thank you, Deb. Still quit since August 5, 2007, and your journey on kept me from ever picking up a cigarette during that first year of cravings. God Bless You.

Thanks to Deb and her family for sharing their personal story. I read the whole diary tonight and you went from a total stranger to a dear friend by the end.
