Ariana- January 30, 2019 

I’ve been a smoker for 12 years, smoking over half a pack a day. For my birthday, I wanted to be smoke free! This is my first attempt, used the patches and am 6 weeks cigarette free. Thank you, ND Quits!!

Congratulations, Ariana! That is great. Cheers to you!

"Two huge factors that I can attribute my smoke free status to: Learning some tips on behavior modification to prepare myself for cravings, and having a "Quit Buddy". We have both been smoke free for over 6 weeks and have no intentions to ever start again. We both used ND Quits and the provided patches. Thank you!"- Mary

"It has been 13 days today since my last cigarette. This is my second attempt. One of my sisters and I have been talking of quitting, and ,well, kept putting it off. Then one day another one of our sisters called me with the news of her receiving the awful 3 word sentence, "You have cancer.Then after her losing 1/2 her lung, I can happily say she is on the road to recovery. The day after surgery, we went up to see her, I set a day I planned on quitting, Jan 1, 2016. I put my last cig out at 8:30pm on Dec 31, 2015... Good Luck to everyone on this journey." -Patty
