Hi there,

Just wanted to share a inspirational one year anniversary post from our member Steve. 

It’s a day, like any other day... with one small exception; it’s my one year, smoke free, anniversary

This isn’t my first rodeo aka I’ve been here before.  I’m ecstatic to be back.

Every once in awhile, an outta nowhere crave slams me. I know this is the desperate attempt of my dying addiction to sucker me back. I tell myself that I’m smarter now.

I rarely think about smoking - which is where I prefer to be. The struggle to get here is real. The freedom is worth every battle.

my advice:

to those starting (at less than 4 months) - suck it up / make the hard choices and stay the course

to those with 4 to 8 months quit: Don’t get frustrated, discouraged or believe (the lie) that one is ok - it’s not.  You DON’T want to do any part of months 0 to 4 over. You especially don’t want to become that serial quitter; that’s a hard place.  I know.

you must always believe that you don’t need cigarettes.  It’s hard to comprehend but you must believe. All the ‘experienced’ quitters on this site have felt the same way you feel: like you’re different.  News flash: you aren’t different.  A peaceful, happy life without nicotine does exist  

8 to 12 months - don’t get complacent, bored or side swiped by the nicodemon. You’re almost there.

12+ months: never forget what it took to get to 12. one is never an option.

I am so glad to be on the other side.

You killed my friends. For years, without me knowing, you robbed me of my freedom.  You are a nasty, smelly, filthy, self serving liar. f$&@ u nicotine - I’m winning

best

Hi November people. I’m just going to slide in here and join you. I quit on November 14 but didn’t think to come back here until last night. I originally quit in February, joined the February group, and had almost 5 months quit when I let down my guard and started a ridiculous quit/start, quit/start smoking thing that only a mad woman would go through. I want to stop smoking for good. 

So, here’s to today of NOPING!
