Hi Denim (who remember everybody ;-)
2-1/2 years tomorrow 10/2/21 completely nicotine-free. Again, I want to thank the forum and all of the kind and thoughtful, generous participants who helped me clean up my addiction.
Just thought I would pop a quick post on to wish my March 2019 quit buddies a very Merry Christmas.
It has now been 2 years 9 months since we quit and most days it seems like I have always been a non-smoker. I never thought I would feel this way as it was a really big part of my life -- I would go as far as to say, it ruled me a lot of the time. I shall have to do a calculation again soon to see how much I have saved over the time - I cant even imagine how much that it but know it is probably an awful lot of money
So Asad and Cheryl, I hope you are both very well and have kept clear of any nasty illnesses and would like to wish you both a very Merry Christmas and all the very best for 2022 :)
Thank you Jan! So glad you are doing well and keep setting those distance records for NOPE!! I am still smoke free as well...Never regret the decision and hope we continue like this until the good Lord returns. I found out in Dec 2019 I am autoimmune deficient. In March 2020 my employer sent a lot of us home to work remotely. Called us back to the office in July 2021. My doctor sent a letter to HR asking for me to remain at home. They let me but asked for more documentation in Sept. Dr wrote a lengthy letter, said I need to stay home permanently. Still never heard back so I take it as a blessing from the Lord. I placed myself in His hands when I went to war with the nicodeamon and He stayed with me this whole way. Now if I pass someone who smokes, I want to be sick. I hate that I smelled that way once. Thank you Jan for remembering me ..please stay safe and may you and yours enjoy the season of Joy!! Happy holidays!!
Hi Cheryl - so sorry to hear you have been through so much with your health. Hopefully this awful virus will leave us before too long and we can all get back to the kind of life we had before. I actually had covid about 6 weeks ago now but I think I was saved from a life changing illness because I am fully vaccinated. My main worry was keeping my husband safe who had a transplant 4 years ago so has a supressed immune system... thankfully I didn't share it with him or with anyone else that I know of and have come out the other side. My aim now is to not get it again!!!! lol
I wish you and yours a very happy and healthy Christmas :)
