World No Tobacco Day: Shedding Dependency Ignorance

Although the World Health Organization sees May 31 as a day to contemplate not using tobacco, the average smoker sees it as a day to tune-out, turn-off and temporarily hide behind their thick protective wall of denial rationalizations. But for those brave enough to briefly peer over the top it could become one of the most rewarding days of their life.

World No Tobacco Day 2016 logoWorld No Tobacco Day will bring thousands of dreamers to the Internet where they'll find it awash with every quick fix magic cure imaginable. Like some thousand item cyber quitting buffet, which product, procedure, book or service should they buy?

According to www.WhyQuit.com, "none" because, like Dorothy trapped in Oz, they've always had the ability to return home.

Unique among Internet quitting destinations, WhyQuit is the only major forum that not only tells quitters to keep their money in their pockets but which has steadfastly refused to accept donations.

An all-volunteer labor of love, WhyQuit contends that although no smoker is stronger than nicotine that they don't need to be as long as they are smarter. Considering that nicotine is simply a chemical with an I.Q. of zero, this should not pose a problem for any smoker.

Established in July 1999 as a mind expanding motivational site, WhyQuit quickly evolved into a multifaceted nicotine dependency educational institution. Today its centerpiece is a large library of original quitting articles containing the thirty-two year seminar and clinic insights of one of the world's premier quit smoking counselors, Joel Spitzer of Chicago.

Affectionately dubbed "Joel's Library" by quitters, its lessons are taught and shared along side all the latest study research at "Freedom," WhyQuit's free peer support education forum.

A core recovery philosophy of "no nicotine just one day at a time," today Freedom graduates some of the most knowledgable ex-smokers on earth.

WhyQuit encourages all smokers to be brave this World No Tobacco Day and spend a few minutes briefly sampling the juice of understanding. Knowledge is power and there was always only one rule - no nicotine just one day at a time, "Never Take Another Puff." Yes you can!
