Hi Bev, there are a few of us January 19 quitters that pop in occasionally. Very excited to hit the 1 year mark on January 16th. I feel that the  milestone will solidify this quit as finally my forever quit! I truly feel like a non smoker.  I remember you from a few years ago on one of my many failed attempts! Hey, at least we finally rid ourselves of the nasty habit, no matter how long it took us!  I plan on popping on here on NYE to congratulate those who are hitting the year mark. Early congrats to you!

Hi Everyone!!

There are lots of us celebrating this month! As of 8am this morning I can finally say it's been a year since I smoked a cigarette. I can't even believe im writing this! What a wild ride it's been!

Thank you all for your unrelenting support and guidance.   Stumbling on this forum saved me from myself.  This is such a very special community.

Happy anniversary to you Bev for tomorrow!!! Time to celebrate!

Happy New Year my fellow Bravehearts! We've come a looooong way!

Let's keep that nicodemon in his place and celebrate our freedom one day (or hour) at a time!

You've proven that you are no sissy so ring in the New a Year proud. I found my body totally calm down around 14 months. That antsy jittery feeling will all calm down in year 2 and any wants for that cigarette fades away. You are acheivng something monumental - you will be one of the 7% that make it to the One Year Milestone!
