Thank you sooo much.  Hard to believe it has been eight months.  Many ups and down during this time but I made it.  Don't know why but really seem to be struggling the past two weeks. Is it the concern and worry about coronavirus or is it just cabin fever from the winter.  I am sure this will pass.  Congrats to all my fellow July quitters.  Wishing all who quit the best. Keep Noping and stay strong.

I forgot to check in on reaching 8 months . It really is a journey ! My body screams at me every so often with weird symptoms rearing their ugly head again in waves but I ride through them , haven’t had cravings in a very long time but the thoughts do come when I feel anxious but they are easily pushed out . 
always one day at a time 

stay safe everyone and stay home ( coronavirus)

Happy 12th month quit to me , never thought I’d make it and had I continued listening to people that said people with anxiety disorders can’t quit then I wouldn’t be here either , it’s been a difficult journey and many times I had to focus on my anxiety more but I got through the difficult times . My body has screamed at me at times not liking what I’ve been putting it through but a lot has now calmed down . 
1 more left in the July quit and I have every faith she will make it (2 days to go ) 

CONGRATULATIONS!!!   So happy for you.   What a year...  some good days some bad days.  Hoping with this quit you have great satisfaction and self pride!!  Wishing you the best and many happy, healthy and continued smoke free days.  Oh you bet I am right behind you!!  Two days and counting!! 

Quit July 25

Congrats! I've been waiting for you to join me. Yes, some people may believe that those with anxiety disorders are prone to failure. Well, you and I both know that some of us are very strong and determined. I'm super proud of you!

Keep up the good work!
