Terry Martin is a former writer for Verywell covering smoking cessation. After 26 years, Terry found the right combination of tools and motivation to quit smoking permanently on October 29, 2001. Since that time, she has devoted herself to helping others find and maintain the freedom from nicotine addiction that she now enjoys.
She learned that recovery from nicotine addiction is a process, not an event, and most importantly, that support from others who are going through recovery is a critical component for long-term success with smoking cessation.
