Most Important Quitting Lesson of All

While using quitting counters, applications (apps) and meters to track progress is fun and inspiring, no meter can undo the consequences of just one hit of nicotine. Nicotine addiction is a brain wanting disorder, an illness and disease that is every bit as real and permanent as alcoholism. While most quitters walk away from trying to cheat feeling like they've gotten away with it, brain scan studies show that just one puff and up to half of their dopamine pathway receptors become activated by nicotine. And it won't be long before they find their brain wanting, plotting to obtain or even begging for more. It's not a matter of weakness or a lack of willpower. It's about the design and function of brain dopamine pathways: to make activating events nearly impossible to ignore in the short term, the time needed for recovery.

We call this lesson the Law of Addiction, that one is too many and a thousand never enough. Knowledge is power. We hope you'll visit WhyQuit often enough to allow yourself to become more dependency recovery savvy than nicotine's influence upon your mind, thinking, health and life. There was always only one rule ... no nicotine today! Just here and now, these next few minutes, yes you can!

Harry's quit counter icon

Harry's Quit Counter


A Windows counter created by Harry, a member of Freedom and former pack-a-day Greek software designer, who went cold turkey on April 21, 2003. Then, on June 6 Harry unveiled his very own meter. Graphically themed upon Turkeyville and Freedom's recovery milestone clubs (gold, silver, bronze and green), aside from just helping you celebrate all major milestones, users are awarded Green status at one month, their recovery is "Bronzed" at 3 months, turns Silver at midyear, and they are awarded Gold status at one year. In addition to tracking standard features such as time quit, cigarettes not smoked, and money and life saved, Harry's meter offers the unique ability to not only track the quit statistics of others (friends, family and online favorites) but also to easily copy their latest statistics to your computer's clipboard (as well as your own) for quick pasting on messageboards and in e-mails. With one click you'll see all the latest milestones of each quitter entered and with another click you can send them an e-mail of "support." Yes, at last, a meter design to not only foster and celebrate your own achievement, but to interactively support and encouragement the continuing success of those around you!
