  1. Will G says:

    Thankfully I never started smoking though many of my family members have. If I were to have quit it would have been for health reasons and because they cost SO much.

  2. Kelly D says:

    My reason for quitting would be for my health if I had become addicted (I was an occasional social smoker). I haven’t smoked in years now.

  3. Steve Weber says:

    My reason for quitting is for my own health and my family as well.

  4. Natalie says:

    I have never been a smoker but my grandpa quit cold turkey without any help when his grandson was born.

  5. Madeline says:

    I’d quit for so many health reasons: healthy lungs, heart, less cancer, etc.

  6. Denise L says:

    I never started smoking because I hated that my mom smoked. I did watch my husband quit. We were looking for some rural property to buy for a weekend getaway. When I told him he could pay for his half of 80 acres if he just quit smoking, he was done. Just like that!

  7. latanya says:

    I am not a smoker

  8. Tamra H says:

    I quit successfully for my family. Need to stay healthy for them!

  9. Margaret Smith says:

  12. Julie Wood says:

    I quit because of my kids, and all the second hand smoke that is so damaging to others. I am glad I quit, I save all that money and I feel so much better.

  14. Susan says:

    Let me give you the 10th reason: Your child(ren) won’t have the stress and worry about your health because of cigarettes. My dad smoked and I was always worried about him because of that. Schools teach kids that smoking is bad for your health so naturally when they see a parent doing it, they worry.

  15. Mita says:

    I do not smoke.

  16. Allison Swain says:

    I have never smoked. I actually am allergic to cigarette smoke! I have a few family members that do and are trying to quit. It is good that you were able to quit! Congrats 🙂 Thank you for the chance to win this.


  17. Jessica To says:

    I have never smoked but my incentive to not smoke is that I don’t want my son to have to sit in smoke in our home and have a negative effect on his health.

  18. Anastasia Falling says:

    Wanting to feel healthier! Wanting to spend my money on better things 🙂

  19. Elle says:

    I have never smoked so no need to quit, never had any desire try.

  20. Rachel says:

    My reasons for quitting were I wanted to be healthier and my husband also wanted me to.

  21. Jessie C. says:

    I have never been a smoker. I know my grandfather quits cold turkey for health reason.

  23. Erlene Amat says:

    Great job quitting to smoke. I’ve been trying for years to get my hubby to spot, so I know it’s not any easy thing to do.

  24. Cynthia C says:

    I have never been a smoker and attribute it to the fact that neither of my parents smoked. I think that’s the best reason not to – to be a good example for your kids.

  25. heather says:

    I want to quit for health reasons and because they cost a fortune these days.

  26. Susan Smith says:

    I have never smoked but both my parents did. They both quit when they started developing health problems. Their reason to quit was to get healthier. My SIL recently quit after smoking for over 30 years.

  27. Chris says:

    I never started smoking – I hated how the walls in our home were dirty where my father smoked and how it made me cough (I was diagnosed with asthma as an adult).

    i would quit to help keep my family healthy

  29. mami2jcn says:

    I want to quit for my health and to enjoy my grandkids. I am strugglng. I bought a vape unit for my next attempt to quit.

  32. Dee says:

    I don’t smoke but would love to help my friend – she’s training for a marathon but having a hard time giving up smoking.

  33. Dee says:

    I tweeted as well – thanks for the chance!

  34. Jennai says:

    My reasons for quitting are 1) better health 2) save money

  35. LAMusing says:

    My vision is getting very bad, my clothes and house stink and I can’t afford it. Reading a book now to psych myself up to quit this month.

  36. Anne says:

    My reasons for quitting were to save money and avoid all the smells that go along with cigarettes. That was thirty years ago, and I’m still a non-smoker!

  37. Anne says:

    Here’s my tweet about your blog post and the Nicorette giveaway:
    Thanks! And congrats on quitting.

  38. Living healthier is going to help me enjoy future grandchildren and life in general!

    I have never smoked. My father smoked 4 packs a day for over 40 years and died due to health problems caused by that. I think he is the reason that I never even tried. Kudos to you for quitting!

  44. Tabathia B says:

    I think a reason for someone to stop smoking is because it isn’t healthy long term.

    I’ve never been a smoker but my father smoked as well as my husband. I saw first hand the dangers to health and tried to keep my children from smoking. I wasn’t totally successful, but they all quit except one and I don’t think he will ever stop.

  51. Thomas Murphy says:

    I don’t smoke but if I did I would quit for health reasons.

    Thanks for the contest.

  54. Jerry Marquardt says:

    The main reason that I quit smoking was to help out with declining health. I could really feel the difference when I stopped.

  55. Daniel says:

    Well, I did not manage to quit smoking 5 years ago but I switched from cigarettes to vaporizers and decreased the amount of nicotine that I consume. Not bad after all =))
