Day 2 of stopping smoking cigarettes, tobacco and nicotine

Day 2 Stop Smoking Lessons

Congratulations and welcome to "Day Two" of your most loving gift ever, freedom! Well done. Two hours and 26 minutes of video lessons, today, if you watch the recommended videos, you'll again be a tad busy.

For those just discovering Joel's daily guide, at the bottom of the page you'll see Joel's Daily Lesson Quitting Guide. After looking at "Starting Your Quit" and "Day 1," you may feel five and a half hours behind. Don't. Just watch what you can.

While recovery insights and understanding aid in helping bolster motivation, in avoiding common pitfalls, and in helping recognize junkie thinking, it is impossible to fail so long as all nicotine remains on the outside.

Baby steps, just one hour and challenge (if any) at a time, yes you can!
