Quit Smoking


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

I used to be a pack a day smoker. I tried the patch, the gum, the spray- nothing worked. They tell you not to try to quit cold turkey, but I did. My secret to that was that I picked up activities. I started mountain biking and playing disc golf (which is pretty low impact compared to MTB) I enjoyed these activities so much, but I was held back because I couldn't breathe! So anytime I wanted to light up- I just thought about how much I wanted to play and be able to do it without suffocating!

To find Disc Golf Courses Near You (and if they're worth playing!)

    It's great that you did it for yourself and not because someone nagged you to do it.
