Terry Martin smoked for 26 years before she found the right combination of tools and motivation to quit smoking permanently. Since that time, she has devoted herself to helping others find and maintain the freedom from nicotine addiction that she now enjoys.
Terry quit smoking on October 29, 2001. Just days later, she joined About.com's smoking cessation support forum, where she learned that recovery from nicotine addiction is a process, not an event, and most importantly, that support from others who are going through the recovery is a critical component for long-term success with smoking cessation.
