Hi Steve, Julie, Screwadriver, Gloria and anyone else I forgot!

I have been sick for awhile and just barely hanging on to the Daily Nope Pledges.

I hope everyone is doing well. :)

Has anyone heard from Liz lately? 

Fight the good fight everybody!

Hi Pam hope you are doing better now and what ever has passed. Liz has been around but being on the quiet side thankfully she is still strong in her quit.

Hi Screwadriver, everything is better. 

I'm still weak and trying to take it easier. Work is going good. Just don't have the same energy. It will take awhile. I am going to see my children and  meet my grandchild very soon. (God willing!) Very excited! 

I am grateful to hear the news about Liz, thank you!

I hope you are doing well. Have a great smoke free night Screwdriver! blush

Hi Pam!  So sorry you haven't been feeling well, hope you are back to 100% asap!  Did you have a nice Mother's Day??  Liz is still around, posting mostly in the January group, though quieter now than before.

Hi Julie!

Thanks, getting better. Yes I did. Dad and I ate Chinese and had a relaxing evening. We're getting excited about the trip to Maryland. We are planning to visit my children and to meet Emma, my first grandchild. 

I hope you enjoyed your mother's day. 

I will have to make a visit to the January group. Maybe to say hi to Liz and All. :)

Happy 6 months and 2 days Screwadriver!!  I had it in my calendar to congratulate you and Pam and then the holiday weekend messed me up.  Halfway house, woohoo!!!

Thanks Julie and now I even have freshly polished teeth as my little treat. It was an up and down ride so far so now just time to be stubborn to actually get our keys.

Its funny.  I was trying to remember when my last craving was on Friday and then yesterday, while firing up the grill, I got hit with a fairly strong one.  Its wild how some addiction connections can hide for that long.  It passed relatively quickly and I feel as strong as ever but its just wild how long a stray connection can hide out.

That said, I have seven months today and I am so proud of all of us.  Pam, Julie, Screwadriver.  Man! We are ACTUALLY DOING IT!  After those scary first few months, the cautiously optimistic middle months, the recent dull drudgery.  Seven months!!! This time last year I was pretty certain I was just going to smoke until I died of cancer, maybe I might get lucky and have a heart attack or something first.  I can't even believe that I used to accept that.

Congrats everyone! This month might not be some fancy milestone but for some reason I feel pumped about it. We totally have this!  We are ACTUALLY non-smokers! We aren't "trying to quit" anymore. Its like, really happening this time. The worst is over, all we have to do is not smoke!  Sounds a heck of a lot easier today than 7 months ago right?

I'm going to go home tonight, pour a glass of wine, and watch my robot lawn mower mow my lawn.  Paid for entirely by money that I used to spend on poisoning myself.  I love it.

7 months!

Late to the party, Steve, but congrats on 7 months!!!  Yes, we are doing it!  And I was the same way, thinking I would never quit, that I’d be one of those old ladies unhooking myself from oxygen so I could smoke.  Thankful every day that i was able to stop for good!

i had a huge craving this past weekend...first road trip as a non-smoker and the first time we stopped I was really jonesing!  And the craves are different now too...just a momentary annoyance, nothing I’d actually act on.

enjoy the wine and lawn mower all summer long!!    And I’ll meet you at 7 in 2 days!
