Welcome to Quit Smoking Support with AS3, a place where you can receive information and support as you stop smoking, from those who have been there. You can become one of the many people who have managed to quit smoking for life.
The heart of our support group is our discussion forum, where you can receive one-on-one support from other quitters like yourself. There is also a chat room. Someone will usually come along to chat with you if you post on our forum that you need help in chat.
We are a non-profit, volunteer group of people who have quit smoking using web-based support and would like to give back what we have been given. We have nothing to sell, and we will support you in your effort to quit using any legitimate smoking-cessation method. Quitters using all methods are welcome here, and we won’t kick you out if your quit is not perfect the first time. We’ll only encourage you to continue pursuing your goal.
Smoking cessation methods used successfully by our members include:
- Nicotine replacement (patches, gum, inhalers, lozenges)
- Cold Turkey (just stopping)
- Prescription medications (such as Wellbutrin or Chantix)
- Behavior modification techniques
There are many methods that might be useful tools if you want to stop smoking, and we believe one of them is right for you. We will support you through your full quit journey, whatever it brings. We’ve been there too, and we know it’s difficult. We also know this: Anyone can quit!
This site is founded on a long history of quit-smoking success. We are an AS3 Legacy Site because the site founders all quit through the support of a USENET newsgroup called AS3, which is short for alt.support.stop-smoking.
Our history is important to us, and we’ll be sharing more of it here in the coming weeks, but what’s more important is what we can do for you today.
AS3 has always strongly endorsed a philosophy of inclusion which encourages new quitters to leave all options on the table. We never know if one method is going to work for one person and not the other. We encourage all members to keep an open mind, because one size does not fit all here.
We are serious about quitting smoking, but we love to have fun. We know it isn’t easy, but you don’t have to do it alone.
