Well it took me forever to locate our forum because we haven't posted here in so long but wanted to reach out to all of us today on my 4 year anniversary to say HAPPY 4 YEARS to all of us!!!  Never in my life did I think I would be 4 years smoke free!!  Miss talking to all of you daily but don't miss going through the torture that we did.  Hope everyone is safe and healthy during these crazy times in our world.  I actually was in the hospital in January with pneumonia and they think I have COPD (go figure!!!).  Gary has to call 911 because I was in full respiratory distress (very scary).  I have an appointment with a lung doctor (finally) tomorrow so we'll see what he says.  I've been on steroids since getting out of the hospital because I literally cannot breathe without them.  So that has been my life this year so far, which has not been so good.  My parents' health has severely gone downhill so that has been some rough stuff too.

Anyway, hope to see you guys check in and that everything is going well for you.  Happy 4 year anniversary to us!

Congratulations on your 4 years. I forget that we all had quit dates since its been so long since I thought about cigarettes. I did notice at the store that a pack here is now $9.90! Thank god I don't have to pay that expense anymore.

I am sorry to hear about your health issues. I have know several folks that had COVID here, my son being one, with varying degrees of symptoms. I hope your meeting goes well.

Looking forward to spring and the warmer weather so we can get back outside and/or on the water. Been keeping up golf, but also too much indoors, baking and eating. Strange days, but trying to stay grounded here locally and marching on.

Glad to hear from you and I wish everyone well on our 4th anniversary month. Stay strong and march on.

So great to hear from you and Cyndi.  I just sent a message to Denim.   Like you I rarely think of smokes anymore. I can smell them from a mile away.  I just saw Cyndis post.   She has been very sick recently but sounds like she may be on the mend.  Her parents are not doing well either.   Today she abs Denim are celebrating your fourth year quit!   Feeling much better these days. I left VA in June 2021 and landed in NJ to care for my 80 year old brother who is fighting esophageal cancer.  His wife has dementia.  Luckily, his daughter was able to come and relieve me!  I am officially living with my son and three grandchildren in MD.  Another one in the way!  I’m looking forward to getting out and meeting others my age and going places to enjoy my freedom.   I am so happy to hear from you.  Congrats to you Cindy and Denim.   This is your four month anniversary.  My email is mcwcford78@gmail.com The forum is officially shutting down.  Stay well, happy and healthy!  I will never forget our times together on the forum.   Saved my life.

Hi Denim! 
Thanks so much for posting our four year graduation post!   I’m happy we all have each other’s email addresses so we can stay in touch.  I’m sorry to see the forum close down but I understand why!  So many people have been saved by this forum.  Congratulations to you on 4 YEARS quit.   I still have my key and will treasure it always.  I hope you are doing well and have been healthy and safe.   I am now living with my son and his three kids.  K is now six and O is almost 5.  C is 3 and baby four is due in May. All the best to you!  I could not have done it without you and our group and this Forum. 
hugs, m

Hi Denim,

Hope all is well.

I can't believe it has been 4 years already. Obviously, I didn't pay attention to our quit day yesterday. It's like I never smoked but will always need to keep my guard up.

Reach out when you can. mikeld5742@gmail.com
