Hugs to you sweet Lore!!!

Yes, it is your day and 8 months....ZOWIE!!!  Lots of struggles we have shared...your advice, support and sharing so often makes my day. It is honor to be on this journey with ya girl!!

Learning to live in smoke free bodies, while challenging at times is so worth it.  How would we ever do this without each other.  Thank you!!

You know Anthony, my Momma was a wise and kind and fierce little woman. She worked hard her whole life, retiring from teaching school at 82! Yup. She imparted many pearls through her life, but one of the best was “if you want to help yourself, help others”. I miss her and it is only now that I am finally realizing how deeply she lived this, and how deeply she loved and gave, and yes...regretted too. So, I had a good teacher. Like so many others here...so many old timers that hang out or come back. This helps me too, you know? I will always be grateful for this place and all of you. heart

I wish you to continue on this path, have no doubt you will btw, and remain such imense source of inspiration and support to myself personally and the rest of people here. I wish you a life without cravings and desires for cigarettes, full of joy and happiness winkkissing_closed_eyes

A HUGE CONGRATULATIONS TO YOU! 8 Full Months 2/3 to the Clubhouse NICE NOPING JOB!!! 

You will still get urges that come out of nowhere but you've been quit long enough to know they are not commands and you must continue to use your tools to succeed. As you know this is not easy and as I always say Quitting isn't for Sissies because once you make the solid choice it's the continuous mental follow through that must be maintained so your brain can rewire and those smoking thoughts and memories fade away. Hang in there and let all those nicotine receptors shut down for good. Nice NOPING!
