Thanks Lor, read it again. I have it booked marked. Yes “normal “ is definitely a broad spectrum but just really wanted to verify I was! Lol......BF may disagree as many others would too

Why are you bored? You are like me a lot, always doing something! I haven’t even tried to decorate for Christmas because I haven’t had time. Then I thought of the repacking everything up, decided oh well. I did think of making a tree, so may do that. I will send you picture if I do! Lol

Anyway thanks again. Hugs! Scarf is very warm, I wore it Thursday! Hugs

Truly, I didn't think I would ever be able to quit.  When the quit happened for me, I took it all the way.  Now that I am literately 10 days away from a full year, there is no way, none, that I would ever go back.   Having said that, knowing it to be true, thoughts come up and probably always will.  Not hard thoughts though, just wonderings.  Like I said though, I think of the drug addict who decides to cave - just one more hit - and he/she is found dead in his/her car in the mall parking lot.   I smile at the thought knowing that I now have a real choice.  I don't have to smoke.  Like I used to think I did.   What a blessing this year has been for me.   

Cheers to all of you 2020 quitters - its your year!

10 months wow! Little lady has cracked the whip big time!

Ha! Yes I am cracking that whip big time! (Insert cracking whip sound here joy) So are you! And...we are doing it without heels too. Man. Isn’t it strange to look back? Just feels surreal. We are doing this Eve. Crazy and hectic and nerve wracking for sure, but...empowering and motivating and exciting too, isn’t it? Well, I will say, I do know I wouldn’t be where I am with it had we not connected, and I am very very happy we did! 
Stay the course....that’s all we gotta do Eve. We already did the quit part,  ow we just gotta stay the course. Keep on keeping on! Woohoo! 
Katchheee! Maybe that doesn’t translate well. Was supposed to be sound of whip cracking. I can say it, pretty well in fact, as when I make that sound Daughter knows she better get moving joy, but can’t really write it! 
Big big big HUGS to you St Eve!!!kissing_heart

Thanks so much to both of you! Boy it has definitely been a bumpy ride! I am still a lil unsure of when that peace comes, but I know ONE THING.......I will not have a puff ever! NOPE! I know for me that THAT is not an option! If I do I will be back full blown smoking in no time. So I have reluctantly accepted that I am an addict. And the only way to stay smomber is not not ever indulge! 

***side note I have 2 more pounds to lose to get back to my before smoking/Covid weight! Yeah. This is my new focus! 

Susan and Lore, been an interesting,amazing, bumpy ride to get here.....but so happy to have you here to support me! 
Couldn’t have done it without you! Thanks for your support and the humorous distraction with the games! Been great! 

Hugs and more hugs to you both!
