Day 3 Stop Smoking Lessons
Congratulations on two days of freedom from nicotine. Outstanding! Welcome to "Day Three" of Joel's Daily Quitting Lesson Guide.
Today, Joel has scheduled 2 hours and 11 minutes (131 minutes) of lessons for your viewing edification. Again, don't fret if unable to watch all ten videos. Why? Because - videos or no videos - it's impossible to relapse so long as all nicotine remains on the outside.
Likewise, if just now discoverying Joel's Daily Quitting Lesson Guide, should you desire, there'll be plenty of time in the days ahead for catch-up.
Today is oh so special. Why? Because two things happen within 72 hours of ending all nicotine use. Not only does the body become 100% nicotine-free, you move beyond peak withdrawal.
Should you have any questions or comments regarding any lesson, submit them as YouTube comments beneath Joel's "AskJoel" video.
Baby steps, just here and now, these next few minutes, yes you can! See you on the otherside.
