Thanks Denim. I'm still on the wagon sort of. Had a few puffs of sitting ciggarette at a party a week ago. But haven't since and back on track. Telling myself not to give in again you know what happened last time  I let the dark side in. So back on the good thoughts. Been very busy getting things done before the real cold sets in. Seen some snow pellets yesterday while out working. But nothing more than a few lake affect bands of snow and drizzle in northern Indiana.  So I've been staying busy to out run the side effects of the QUIT.  So Thanks for watching out for me. Need someone to watch my 6. Cuz it seems like when things happen they just come out of the blue.    time to get at it. Projects waiting.    Later Ed G.

Hey Dipo, 

Congratulations on seven weeks smoke free and another wonderful milestone! I hope you’re off enjoying the day and celebrating. I hope you reward yourself with something special too. Reaching these milestones is definitely something to celebrate. I also hope, as we move closer to the weekend, that you have a wonderful weekend ahead. Again, congratulations and yay you! 

Have a great day.

Hey Ed, 

I’m so happy to hear that you didn’t let that puff detour your quit. That happens so often. I’m so glad you found the strength to carry on without them and continue on your smoke free journey. That’s great news! So proud of you too. I know it isn’t easy but you’re doing it, so yay you! 

I know what you mean, I still have a couple of things that I want to get completed before the snowy weather arrives too. Hopefully anyway. I’m working on it. We’ll see I guess. Good luck with things there too. Staying busy really is a great distraction, so I’m glad there’s that added bonus of it for you too. 

You’re very welcome. I’m glad to be here.  

You’re right about things out of the blue, both during cessation and in life in general. Currently facing one of those myself but hopefully it’ll all work out okay. Anyway…. 

I’m so glad you posted again. It really is good to hear from you and to know you’re staying with it. You can do it and your two month milestone is coming up soon too. That’s great! 

I’m going to post this now so that you’ll see I’ve answered. I’ve also got a few things that I need to try to do today. Have a wonderful Friday and a great weekend ahead. Talk again soon. 

Have a great day.

Even its week 6, I really I hope I get through the week - been having a really tough time at work / with financials currently. Its so hard to remember the NOPE thing sometimes, my mind keeps on trying to trick me that I need one to go through all of this

Hi Denim Hows things? Just writing in after a little time off the forum to let you know that things are good.  Been staying very busy getting things done brfore the snow flies. Well the the snow has accumalated for the first time. But it left for now! Still smoke free. YEH HAW. Have made it threw some rough patches. Butt still smoke free. I get on here almost every morning to see the scutlle-butt and see that things are still going good for most people. I still look back to the first quit buddies from Oct. 2019. And realize that I screwed up after the 1 1/2 year quit. Butt it's been a lesson that I do not want to repeat. So it keeps me grounded to say NOPE many times over & over. So have a good day and enjoy life. Ed G.
