Please hang in there with your quit. After you get through the third month time starts moving much more quickly.
Also, the withdrawal and cravings are much less intense after the third month.
Congratulations on fifteen months smoke free! I hope things are going great for you and that you have a wonderful week.
Hope all is well! I went awol for a while too but am trying to get back to all of you. Come by and say hello when you get a chance. :)
How are you doing? Enjoying the beginnings of the Fall Season? I hope so. It’s supposed to be cold here tonight. I hope the weather is comfortable your way. Anyway, I saw your post and wanted to stop by and say hi. Have a good evening.
Thank you for your nice message and congrats! Even tho I was kind of looking forward to the 15 mo th mark, I forgot it's here. I've got so much going on right now, and some of it is not pleasant (trying to find a lender for my home-the balloon payment came due which I didn't even remember there was one. Even though we've never been late on a single payment since 1998, this place won't re-finance!).
Also, a WARM hello to all of my friends on this forum! It's so good to see you're all (I think) still here!
Best wishes to all!

I’m so sorry to hear that you’re having to go through that. I wish you the best of luck finding a lender. Those balloon payments are awful! I really hope everything works out for you. Keep in touch. Hugs.
Nice to hear from you! Our group has gone quiet for now. The weather here has been great except for all the fires we are having. We used to have just around 8 fires a year. Now we have around 18 - 20.
I had a dream that I smoked last night. I have not had one of those dreams for a while, but it seemed so real and I was very upset. So thankful it wasn't true. It was an odd feeling too, like why am I smoking? Didn't I quit? LOL
Hope all is well with you!
I hope none of them are near your home. It was raining here this morning but has has since stopped. I hope you get some rain out there to help extinguish some of those fires.
So many have had that occasional odd dream. You’re not alone with it but thank goodness that’s all they are. Silly remnants I suppose, idk, but at least it was only a dream, or nightmare, lol.
How are the pups doing? I keep thinking of what Gloria wrote about hers chasing the car, lol. I think that must be a sight!
I’m not doing a lot today, messing around the house.
LOL. I hope you have a great day. Please keep in touch as you get the chance. It’s wonderful to hear from you.
What a great little meme! Made me laugh since I wear glasses myself to read.
My pups are doing really well now. Had a bit of a rough start with my new doggie. He snapped a couple of times at my boyfriend, but it turned out he had a really bad ear infection and was just protecting his ears. Poor baby. I felt like a bad fur mama for not noticing right away, but he had so many other issues when we first got him. We got the ear problem taken care of and he is doing so much better! He gets along with our other dog really well.
His name is captain but I call him old man dog because he is a senior and he did have a lot of issues when we first brought him home.
Do you have any pets? I suppose cats would be easier because you don't have to walk them, but kitty litter is probably not a fun thing to deal with.
I have had that smoking dream three or four times, but it had been a while. Always glad to wake up and realize it was just a dream.
Hope you are having a great week! Talk to you soon. Hoping to hear from Gloria soon too. :)
