Do exactly what you’re doing and you will get there too! It always helped me to pledge every day and participate a lot in mine and others groups. You can do this!!

Hi Kim!!

Holy Moly its been a while!! Can you believe we are almost in August again - 5 YEARS!!!!! SO AWESOME!!

How are you? Have you guys moved yet? How are the babies? How is your health? I pray covid hasnt impacted you all! My parents got it - but thank GOD they both are recovered and fine - it was basically flu like symptoms - never got worse.

Also guess what - since we spoke last I FINALLY finished all of my exams and I am officially a CPA! Gosh - I think I worked on those forever hahahah I am so glad to be done!

Was thinking about you and wanted to check in! I promise to check back soon :)

Good morning...GOOD DAY....

Happy FIFTH Anniversary to ALL the August Champions!

Just a quick stop at the day's beginning, as I an going out in a few.

Wanted to acknowledge those who helped ALL of us to get to this moment.

First and foremost: our companions in the battle, our brethren the other August Champions. We lost some along the way...and hopefully they will find a new path to being smokefree. [Specially Helen365...]

And this site and the mods. ModDee and ModMarge! Providing a hand and word when we needed a lil (or big) boost.

Personally, I must thank some people specifically for helping me in ways I cannot even comprehend even to this day....

? Angelina...my twin...no words...none for what you meant to me on this journey. 

? Rick342...my rock...

? Steve (Gersheps)...

? Sensational Seniors...Kitty, Susan, Cocoa

? And ALL OF YOU....

One confession: This has been the hardest thing I have ever done and, outside of my daughter, the one that I am most proud of. Sometimes crawling...sometimes almost being carried by you, my comrades in arms...sometimes silly...sometimes really angry.

But one thing (well, two) were dots, stars, keys and wings that inspired and carried me forward for the last FIVE YEARS: (1) your support and belief we could be SMOKEFREE, and (2), more importantly, my Lord.

Thank you. Gracias. Danke schoen. Merci. Grazie.

Upward. Onward. Forward.

Retreat is not an option.

Victory is ours.

Gratefully...

Jo

You've all earned your wings!!!!! Nice job of nailing the addiction! You guys will definitely inspire new quitters to just hang in there and take this One Day At A Time like you guys did. You definitely are no sissies!
