Congratulations!! I bet that is a very empowering feeling. Nice work. Been following your journal and find it very validating and inspiring...and hilarious to boot! So...celebration plans are....???
Thanks for sticking around...mostly give yourself a great big pat on the back. Great job.
Thank you so much, Loreficent!!
Must be so liberating to be in the CLUB! Great job! Keep goin!
Congratulations Meredith! I would guess it feels like a hard earned victory! What reward are you planning? Love the key!
My brain being healed from quitting nicotine will be all the reward I need, in two to six more months when it's actually done. Hopefully the other life events didn't cause too much trauma and I'll be truly free by 3/3/21. I will probably throw a [small!] party then, though.
But thank you so much for the well wishes, Susan!
I hear you! I was not prepared for the emotional toll of overcoming this addiction, and I’m still not, however, I am holding on to the faith and still in the fight, and I am glad to hear you are too! Looking back to the beginning of my quit helps me realize that I have overcome a lot that I didn’t think I could, so that restores my strength and resolve that I will be healthy and happy! Nothing in life is ever linear, no matter how much we want it to be!
You have achieved a tremendous goal that is pretty darn tough to overcome by most standards, so there’s that!
You did it James! You have been free of nicotine for 368 days! Fantabulous!
Did you know wisdom is defined: as the quality of having experience, knowledge and good judgment. So, just by quitting cigarettes, you are healthier, wealthier and WISE!
It was a tough first 6 months but now I barely even think about cigarettes anymore.
Sorry Meredith! I accidentally used Meredith’s. journal to congratulate James. James, I’m glad you got the message.
Congratualtions again to both of you! You both quit on the same day and both were victorious!
