March 2019 Ex-Smokers    Quit Buddies Unite

Started 1/28/19 by Terry (abquitsmking); 142842 views.

Congratulations!! It is always so great to see another successful quitter make it to the One Year Clubhouse! It's monumental. All that hard struggle got you to this point. Year 2 is a breeze so just keep up the great job and watch out for that just one thinking as it takes 2 years to have an 80% chance of remaining quit for life. You are truly going to inspire new quitters as they all need the hope that the misery does end. You've proven that you are no sissy! Way to Go!

Hi Susan..so sorry for the delay.  Had issues with getting email notices that I have messages on the forum.Thanks so much for the good wishes..when did you quit?? I hit one year today and it's almost surreal that I am here...that I made it!! Taking this an hour at a time to start, then a day at a time makes it seem like forever sometimes.  But after one year, I am so very grateful to be smober!! With all this virus pandemic,  my lungs at least have a stronger fighting chance than they would a year ago. Wherever you are in your quit, dont EVER give it up.  Dont ever look back, there's nothing there worth going in reverse. Take care and NOPE!!! Cheryl

Hi Jan.. thank you for taking the time to congratulate me.. that's one of the things I like most about this forum.. there are so many caring people here, like you. I am not techy enough to add a key, even though Mod Andrea was kind enough to explain it to me, bless her. I just can't get it to work.  I am just so happy to be be smoke-free! Especially now with this respiratory Covid 19  virus out there..our lungs need all the help they can get! I pray that you are a success with staying smober for the rest of your life.. which will be much longer now with happy lungs.  Never look back.. there's nothing in the past for you.  Hold your NOPE..not one puff EVER! May our Lord bless and keep you safe,  Jan.  Your smober sister,  Cheryl

Jan.. you deserve all the kudos... you climbed the mountain and are now a five star winner! It's a tough journey with SO many temptations but God gives us strength that gets us to this point. So celebrate and be proud of the new, very improved you!! 

I'm so glad to have helped you in your quit, I am going to help out with this Corona Virus by coming out of retirement. I'm a nurse and feel the call to help out. Once this virus over taxes the nursing staff many of us retired nurses can help out in various ways. I sure hope you stay safe and help out your family and friends get through these very difficult times. I'm so glad I quit smoking as smokers are at a much greater risk of getting seriously sick with this virus. Take care.
