Hi Denim,

I am so glad you are hanging in there.  This is a tough process for sure.  Take it one day at t time and get to bed smoke free.  

I love your profile picture.  It is a reminder of how you will soar free once from this terrible addiction.   You can do this.

Marge, 

     I love that picture of the side mirror you posted and I’m still smiling from reading it. I hadn’t thought of my picture that way, but what you said puts it in a whole new light. I like that idea too. Thank you! I have to admit, I used so many of your ideas and suggestions to get here. I hope you don’t mind but, I think I’m going to copy that picture to remind myself of what it says. Have a great day.    

:)       

Hi Denim,

You are welcome to anything I post:))  I had that picture and one other pinned to the wall that leads my basement for the whole first year.  That way I had to look at them every day.  I still keep the one below on that wall because it helps me to sort thing things out and not be double-minded,

                                                        

Hi Marilyn,

It looks like you have a signature with your quit date.  Does that mean you have a paying membership or are you copying and pasting your signature every time you post?  You need your star

I needed time before I went back to bed as my dream was really weird and if I go right back to sleep I continue the same dream.  and the movie was from 92 so you might be right about it being old movies.  I will watch that from now and make note of it.  It just seems like everyone in movies is always smoking.

Hi Denimsmile

I am glad we all helped. Congrats on reaching your 1st Full Month. I bet it feels great to have hung in there. This is a WICKED ADICTION and we must use every tool and all the help we can plus getting the support from all the like minded people on this forum. This is our Rehab Facility. Here we can complain nonstop, post our tough times and our good times and offer tips since we all know the stress of the quit gets so frustrating at times. It is a long slow process but we all have to relearn everything and do things without a cigarette at every turn. At first it all feels weird to go about our business without smoking but after constant repetition and time it will become automatic. We are all different but many people find their new smoke free lives somewhere after the first year. In the meantime, take this one crave, one day at a time & keep up the great job!

Hi Marilyn,

You literally make me laugh out loud and I crack up the way you put things.  You are very clever and creative, that's for sure.  I don't want to be the one to fall out the window!  LOL!!!

Hope you have a great day!

Hi Mike!

Glad you made it here.  We have the same quit date...don't we?  Glad things are settling down for you and you're still on the road to freedom!

One that sticks in my head is watching old "I Love Lucy" episodes where Lucy and Ricky are always smoking (and drinking).  Kind of cracks me up how glamorous it all was in the 50's.  Now they put pics of throat cancer tumors and other horrendous smoking effects on the packs in the UK.  The US needs to start doing stuff like that.  How can you smoke with that image staring you in the face?  I really started noticing the advertising gimmicks in the US since I've quit.  Well, they had me spending my hard earn money slowly killing myself for 35 years.  It must work!

Yes, we do have the same quit date!

It has been an interesting and challenging journey that has become who I am....a non smoker and I like that!!
