13 years!   One Year and Beyond Milestones

Started Mar-20 by TjeCan (TerryTjeCan); 527 views.

Just checking in to let all know that this process comes to an end one day! After serial quitting and using this site off and on for about 6 years, I made my final quit on Christmas Day in 2006. The forum reminder of messages popped up on my emails today and I remembered that I didn't post my 13 year anniversary in December. People you will get to a point that you will forget about this!!!! Keep on Keeping on as my friend Charlie always said in his posts and you will get there! Since we don't have our signatures anymore, I was the gal with the dancing cowgirl boots. Love to all! Terry

Congratualtions Terry.  You give me a lot of hope.  A real inspiration.

You can do this. I tried to think of what I was gaining instead of what I thought I was giving up. So hard I know when you are in the middle of it! Be kind to yourself and push on and you will be over the hump. The freedom on the other side is so very worth it!
