Quit smoking? ARA wants to know

The American Respiratory Alliance of Western Pennsylvania wants to hear from people who have successfully quit smoking.

Over the course of the next several months, the Respiratory Alliance will collect these success stories and print them in a booklet that will inspire and motivate smokers who want to quit.

Everyone knows that smoking is harmful but few people realize that smoking is also a powerful addiction. Many smokers form an uncontrollable dependence on cigarettes to the point where the side effects of quitting become overwhelming road blocks in the way of success.

Smokers often feel alone and unsupported when they try to quit. But smokers who quit with the encouragement and help of others in the same situation are usually more successful.

The Respiratory Alliance wants to make sure that smokers who wish to quit can have the support of others who have overcome addiction successfully. Quitting Success Stories will help quitters know they are not alone in trying to quit. Millions of people have quit successfully and their stories will now help others quit too.

If you have quit smoking successfully, contact the American Respiratory Alliance and share your story – it could save someone's life. Call 1-800-220-1990.
