Hi Denim..awww. you are very sweet to remember me and # 7.. thank you.Im  sorry I have not been on lately..its been one crisis after another the last month in my family so online was rarely an option. I'm very glad you are strong and smober..I feel you will make the long haul Denim. I had a couple thoughts of relapse but did not because I refuse to sacrifice all that work! Holidays will be less stress without nicotine for sure. Please take a LOT of pride in what you have done because you will reap the results for life.  Many hugs and lots of appreciation for remembering me :) Cheryl  NOPE!!!

Hi all March 2019 quitters - 7 months feels grand doesn't it?  I was sitting here this morning thinking that smoking no longer dominates my thoughts and I never thought I would say that!!  I still get cravings now and then when I least expect them but I now know it would be the worst thing I could do to light up.  i only hope I can keep that frame of mind

Well done to all March 2019 quitters - we have completed a massive feat by reaching this level

Hello,

For sure 7 months is a big milestone. I don't feel that I will have any reason to go back to smoking but I am not sure of unknown which makes me worry at sometime. What I understand is that we need to make some effort to stop thinking about cigarette by getting engaged into something else.

I am feeling much better after 5 month onward and major reason is that I think smoking is past thing and I need to focus on something else and these days trying to lose excess weight which I have pre and post quit. This thing is working for me and I hope it will stay like this.

Regards,

Asad

Asad   You are an inspiration

AWESOME JOB ASAD!!!!!!

7 Full Months -- YOU ARE NAILING THIS!!! Be very very proud of your monumental achievement as this is one wicked drug addiction to kick. Remember don't worry about the weight right now as Year 1 is for getting solidly quit and Year 2 is for losing the weight and getting healthy. I know that too many people relapse if they try to do both at the same time so keep your focus on staying quit first and foremost. 

Onto month 8 for you.

Hello,

I have question for all. Due to weather changes I have a cold. Although it is not something new but it is the first time after the quit that I am suffering through it.

I have feeling that this cold is much more severe than what I used to get when I was smoker and it has been 4-5 days and one single sneeze is making me really sick with watery eyes etc.

Regards,

Asad

It's flu season so perhaps you've got it. Get lots of rest, fluids, vitaminC and stay warm. I'm getting the flu shot so I don't get the flu which can last for three or more weeks. See you doctor if things get worse.

Quitting smoking is the best thing you could ever do as your body will bounce back faster as a quitter. Hang in there.
