My name is Linda Lambert and I am 47 years young. I was a smoker since the age of 15. For years I wanted to quit. I had tried everything with no luck and then a friend told me about stickK.com so I decided to check it out. I had purchased a self hypnosis CD and after a month of listening to it I decided there was no time like the present and that I would try one more time to quit. So I took a week off work, set up a profile on Stickk.com and asked a friend to be my referee and her daughter to be my supporter.
The first week was the hardest but the fact that I had committed to a contract and that I had support as well as someone who was keeping me honest, i.e., my referee, it gave me the strength and courage to keep going with my goal. I also really liked the fact that the reporting was done one week at a time. I didn’t have to focus on never smoking again. I just had to focus on that week and making it to my next reporting period. Looking at it that way removed a lot of the stress that knowing you can never smoke again can create.
Every week I was excited to get my email reminder. I felt like I’d accomplished something each and every week and I started getting really excited about the possibility that I would actually succeed. I wanted to get that email that stated 52 successful reporting periods and eventually I did! I am happy to report that I have been smoke free ever since and that was Memorial Day 2009.
For me personally I believe stickK.com was critical to my success. When I was doubting myself I could read what others were going through. It’s nice to know you’re not alone when going through a major life change like quiting smoking for the first time in your adult life. I’ve recommended Stickk.com to all my friends and co-workers. Whether it’s to lose a few pounds, quit smoking or whatever your goal might be, Stickk.com is a great way to get started. It’s fun and it helps keep you on track. You can also include your friends and family as supporters and they too can share in your achievements.
Thank you stickK.com for making my life better!!!
