Good morning all, 

Happy Friday! I guess I will kick off the pledge.....I’m up early again!

So today I pledge my NOPE, not one puff ever!

Everyday is a new beginning, take a deep breath, smile and start again!

Have a fantastic weekend everyone!

Good Morning Eve.  I didn't see this post and started a whole new NOPE thread for today.  Sorry for the duplicate efforts.

I love the quote of the day!  .. Feeling it this Friday morning.   Am slammed at work and pretty stressed out .. leaves very little time to post on this board : (  .. the work schedule is entirely too demanding on my pain ridden body :  Ugh.

Anyway, I am going to post tomorrow morning an update to you and everyone.  Have something big I have to tell you regarding my quit journey.  Closing in on month 3 .. I GET IT how 3 mos marker is challenging for people.  Wow.

Have a fantastic Friday,  TGIF!!  Take my pledge this morning and ask for others to join in...

Will gladly take your hand Miss Gloria!!  It is an honor everyday. That is so wonderful July 2018!!  You go Gloria!!  Great name, btw...my best friend is a red headed Gloria!!  Hats off to you from Texas!!



Hi Peggy,

Hats off to you too for quitting. You are 3 weeks in...you have almost earned a star. Congrats. It is a hard journey but so worth it. Take the NOPE pledge everyday and just tell and promise yourself "Just don't smoke TODAY....you just have to get thru today. You can do this. Keep going. Remain steadfast, tenacious, passionate and committed to remain smoke-free. One of my mottos that helped keep me focused was "My desire to NOT smoke is stronger that my desire to smoke."  I made up my mind to never smoke another cig. I smoked for 42 years. And I quit cold turkey...but I did have Wellbutrin that I used for 2 weeks. It did help somewhat with cravings but that withdrawal was kicking my butt. You really have gotten thru the hardest part...now just make a commitment to NOT smoke today and let the days add up. The support on this site is wonderful and so helpful. Keep fighting for your freedom.


NOPE since Jul 2018...How Sweet it is
