Hey Marilyn!  Congratulations on 3 years!!!!  Sorry I'm a day late but thankfully Denim is always on top of our anniversaries.

Hope everything is going well for you.  Everyone on here always in my thoughts.  Can't believe it's been 3 years.  We were in constant communication for that first year.  I am so grateful for all your support because that is truly what led to our success.

Marilyn, hope you're living your best life right and and are safe and healthy.  Big hugs to you all!

Thank you so much Cindi.   Yes, I looked forward to talking to each other every  night as we were ready to pull our hair out, and other horrible things just to get through that miserable year.   I really did have every intention of staying on here but it just didn’t happen.   I am on again  I heard aaDenim calling as I looked at my calendar this week!   It has been  a wonderful afternoon seeing all of you again and your beautiful graphics.  I’m still horrible with the computer stuff!    It has been a crazy year and a half and I’m looking forward to some happier days ahead however, i never did think of smoking again.  Will talk soon and thanks again

Hey Marilyn, 

All of us together make a amazing group, so glad you’re here and happy to celebrate with you! :) 

I have to give Queen Cazza her credit. When she arrived at the Clubhouse we were both missing many of our friends. Cazza said to me, ‘Your encouragement and support over the last year had been amazing. Just wish we had all the old gang here as well.’ We had both been missing everyone for some time, so I sent out post to multiple friends saying, ‘Cazza and I are missing you here. ‘ Thankfully many of you came back and we’re SO HAPPY that you, Cindi, Michele, Suzy, and Anthony did. Still missing some but thrilled you all are here again, it’s great! :)

Hi Marge    It is so wonderful to see everyone here again.   I hope you are doing terrific and thank you for everything you did to help us.  I am forever grateful    I just wrote a very long post about how the pandemic has really isolated us.   I just know they I could never have done it without the support here.   We all been each other no matter the issue,  The over 500000 people who died.    I sit and cry sometimes how they were so helpless because the pandemic did not allow us to get close enough to help each other   Thanks for everything that you do gor all of us Marge   Hugs Marilyn

Hello Marilyn,

So good to hear from you.  I am not involved daily in the forum these days but I do pop in to keep abreast of things and help keep any trolls out of this great place.

Congratulations to you on 3 big years smoke free.  Isn't is a wonderful thing.  My group hits 6 years this month.  I am continually grateful for be smoke free and this is the place that got me through all the long hard days marching toward freedom.

You have more than played it forward in all the encouragement you have given to others(as well as Cindy and Denim)

I can’t imagine what it would have been like without you here. Love to each and every one of you! Hugs.

Congratulations to the March 2018 triplets!   My friends who have been with me for three years kicking our nasty habit...    I have tried to send captions and beautiful photos but as you can see they are floating around in “forum space”.   As you know, we spent one entire year running to the computer to find  each other and dodge that pack of smokes or “just one”   We made it and it is the best  presents I have ever given myself.  I have been thinking of many on this forum all this week and remembering our journey.  It was wild, fun and insane but we did it!!!! I Officially resigned affective the end of May.  Yesterday I turned in my 60 day notice. So, things are moving on and I am looking forward to a new life.  I trided to insert my cool photos but as I said my original is long gone somewhere on this forum,,   I love all of your pics too!   I tried but I will need to try another day.   I’m supposed to be working from home today but I have been on the forum since I woke up   Have a wonderful day and treat yourselves, you deserve it!   You are simply the best and my heroes love m

Dear Denim, Cindi and Mike,

Huge congratulations to all three of you on three years smoke-free - that is just wonderful, and I hope you all celebrated in style.

I'm back here again after falling prey to the 'just one' idea - currently on Day 4, and feeling good about things so far.  You are living proof that this is not only doable, but also a great thing to do.  I'm feeling all inspired, so thank you.

Big, smoke-free hugs to you all.
