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.
Hello you August Champions, 2015
JoJo, Angelina , Janet, Kim, Rula, Helen, Youdi, Angela and Jenn. Please excuse if I missed anybody, I am very sorry-let me know.
Huge congratulations on 5 years quit. You all have sprouted beautiful wings.
PS - You guys were such a great in your support for one another.
--Celebrate this wonderful freedom--
Congratulations to every single August Champions 2015!!!!!
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!
"Quitting isn't for Sissies!" I quit poisoning myself Sept. 27, 2013
Congratulations to all August Warriors for earning your wings! I am so very proud of all of you & I'm also extremely grateful My 5 year anniversary will be the end of September & there is no way I would have made it to this point without all of you & so many others cheering me on.
(((BIG HUGS))) & lots of love coming your way,
FIVE YEARS!!!!!!! We did it girl!
Congratulations to all of my fellow August Champions!!! We earned our wings! Thank the Lord!!!
I'm doing well, trying to keep our immune systems working optimally so no one gets sick. Covid hasn’t touched any one in my family so praying. I’m so relieved to hear you guys are fine and your parents fully recovered. All of the babies are doing great! I take care of the boys. They’re all getting so big! We just found out we have another one on the way!! This time, my oldest son and his fiancé are expecting. We’re so excited!
Congratulations on passing your exams! It was a long road but I knew you had it in you.
Check back in when you can, take care!!
Aww - congrats! Another on the way! That is so exciting - we are getting close to trying to start our family - but we are working on building a house first! We are actually mid planning with an architect now for the plans - hope to be moved in by the end of 2021...its going to be a long process lol we are just at the beginning right now!
I am so glad to hear COVID hasn't touched anyone in your family - I pray it doesn't!
Yes - I am so glad I passed my exams - and I actually was promoted to manager too (basically they were just waiting for me to pass my CPA, as its mandatory for a management position) so I am glad I am done and can continue to progress at work as well!
Gosh - 5 years - I really can't believe it some days. I honestly forget I even smoked! Right now is a bit stressful as we have the 2 storms in the gulf potentially headed our way - though its looking like Marco will go to Louisiana and miss us, but Laura is a little more unknown - hope she turns! 2020 has been crazy enough!!
Talk to you soon! :)
Hi there, Kim,
I just wanted to stop by to congratulate you on earning your wings!! 5 years smoke free, who would have thought that we would be here still standing strong!! Thank you for always having my back through this journey. Sounds like you're a busy Grandma , God sure has blessed you & your family.
(((BIG HUGS))) and lots of love coming your way,
Congratulations on earning your wings!!! You are an inspiration & I'm proud that we were able to make this journey together!
Was thinking of you and all of the August Champs!
Hope all is well! I am busy busy with work and Holiday stuff - I finally finished my CPA and got promoted to a management position and it is already so much more work! lol
Hope you are ready for Christmas! Though this year will be a little different overall - because of COVID!
Talk to you soon
Just decided to check in and saw your post. Congratulations on your new management position! So proud of you!!
How was your Christmas? Family doing well? Mine was wonderful! Spent it in GA this year with kids and grand babies. All the kids are getting so big. New one due beginning of April. Can’t wait!!
Covid has definitely ruined everything. I could talk about a lot of things going on right now but I’ll leave it there, lol!
Talk soon sweetie!
