Hi Mrissa,

It's amazing what we used to do as smokers.  Like you I continued to smoke through colds and the flu.  It's also amazing the difference one year makes.  I hardly think about smoking at all anymore and when I do, it's a just a passing moment.  My boyfriend and I went to see Van Morrison recently and I watched as the smokers were trying to get their smokes in before the concert started.  The smoking areas were very limited and I felt sorry for them.  That would have been me just over a year ago.  And I would have had to find a place to smoke between the opening act and the concert.  Then I would have been dying to smoke about half-way through the concert.

They say only 7% of people who quit smoking will make it to one year.  I do not know the percentage for relapse after one year, but we are certainly the exception and it is a good place to be.  Glad you made it with us.  Thank you for your support and hope you are feeling better!

Hey Molly,

It really is incredible how different and incredible life is without cigarettes. The enjoyment and pleasure in activities is unencumbered now. My husband and I rode mountain bikes for 3 hours today. I never once thought of smoking. The times have grown few and far between that I have any smoking thoughts. I LONGED to live days with this freedom.  Now I do!!

It's so precious. I can't ever imagine going back to smoking. I will stay vigilant with the understanding that it would only take 1 puff to be back to where I never want to go again. N.O.P.E will be a life choice daily.

I'm so happy for you and your freedom. Especially at the concerts that you enjoy! I remember how you shared the smoking  trigger of going to concerts.... now you are free and unencumbered to enjoy concerts!!

How awesome!!

I'm so happy relaxed to be in that number with you and all our quit buddies who have passed a year and more

Let's keep going !! .... I like those beautiful wings that fivers have....  I would like to get a pair
