Twelve weeks this Tuesday and three months the Tuesday after that. Here we go. I think it was Brenda [Edit: it was Michele] who told me to grow my nails out so I can hang on; I decided acrylics were in order (aka, sounded like a nice excuse to have the novel experience). Already had an urge strong enough to make me a little dizzy, driving home from getting my nails done. Heeeere we go.

Oh how pretty, Meredith.  They look fabulous.  What a lovely treat for yourself and they help you to hang on tight !!  I had them done once, but being such a dork, I couldn't do ANYTHING with them.   Couldn't do my bra or zip my pants or button a shirt.  My hubby had to dress me everyday. But I sure thought they were fancy and so pretty.  Way to go, almost to the 3 month mark.  So very proud of you !!

Congrats! Great job.....keep it up, didn’t read your whole blog, but some.....are you still using the herbal cigarettes?

Thank you!

I know, there's a lot...but it helped me, at least! ;)

Nah, I laid off the herbal smokes after finishing Allen Carr's Easyway book. I did have a couple the following week, and then two since then. Last time, in mid October, it just inflamed my nose so bad I couldn't enjoy it. I keep them around as a security blanket because at least it doesn't put me back in the nicotine trap.
