Hi All

It looks like this thread is dead. No responses to my previous post three years ago.

Anyway. I am still smoke and nicotine free after 8 years and 3 months. 

We had a five month Covid Lockdown over here which included a booze-ban (and tobacco ban). I thought that might trigger cravings, it didn't.  We all became pineapple beer homebrewer specialists overnight - lol.

Take care you-all

Hi Dave and congrats on 8 + years quit. Yes the long timers have all moved on with their nonsmoking lives. It would be great to have a thread dedicated to long timers so a constant but of wisdom and hope helps the new struggles of the entire first year. 

I'm over 7 years quit and never ever would have been able to stay quit without this forum. The pay it forward plan really helped keep my mind focused on the quit mindset and strategies to use my intellect to outwit the strong cravings. I always loved the one liners people would post as they would run around in my mind in those weak moments. Things like 'One leads to thousands more!", Just Don't Smoke, Smoking is not an Option, etc. 

I really think it helps to keep a journal and on the old forum everyone would have one. On this forum it's not as frequently used but it is a great tool so you see how you've progressed as the months go by. 

Anyways, stay safe and best of luck getting through these tough Covid times.
