Thanks.  I hope you all have good holidays also.  No I do not even think of smoking anymore.  Now I really notice what smokers smell like.  I don't really like being near them.  I really don't want to be near anyone that is actually smoking.  I HATE it when someone lights up while still in my presence.  I'm like, hey why do you think I want to breath that ####?  And take off.  Anyway I'm doing  well.  Still doing Medicare Advantage Plan phone calls for Oregon Arizona and Washington, and sometimes California.  Lots of phone calls right now with Fall open enrollment going on.

Hey Tom,

I hate going in and out of buildings now that Fall has arrived.  Like you I cannot stand the smell anymore!   I was telling Denim that I am getting somewhat frustrated with these thoughts of cigarettes periodically.  It’s like I take a trip down memory lane sometimes.  I have no desire to smoke nor would I be tempted to smoke.   I’m rather confused about why my brain seems to go back in time.  Sounds like you have finally found work that is working out for you.  It sounds interesting. I am looking for something new in the spring.  I’m getting too old to be in the classroom.  I need to interact with adults.   Wishing you a nice holiday.  I don’t know if you are still in Kansas.  If so, I hope you are ok with the multiple storms they are predicting.  I’m still in VA and assuming it will rain this upcoming weekend.  Does not really bother me anymore.  I don’t need Togo outside anymore! 

All the best.

Hey Marilyn, 

     Hope you had a wonderful day celebrating your milestone Monday. Hope you have a great Thanksgiving with your family too. Thanks for the good wishes. I hope your Thanksgiving is peaceful and stress free also. It’s great to hear from you. I hope everything went good with the doctor. It’s wonderful to see you leading us into year two soon, less than three months for you. So happy for you and all of our little group. Have a good evening and a great Thanksgiving. Talk again soon. Hugs.

Hi Denim,
Yipee on your 21 month quitiversary!  I want to say thank you for always being there as a supporter and a cheerleader for everyone!  You have either an incredible memory or are well organized.  What it shows is you are everyone’s sister, keeping us going, recognizing our achievements, and pushing us in the right direction.

Thank you for being an incredible, kind hearted, caring friend to the forum family!
