   I have had company the last week so wasn't able to come here except to NOPE one day.  What a beautiful memorial to your Daddy.  He sounds so special to you and I can tell you loved him to the moon and back.  Your memorial brought laughter and tears to me, thank you so much for sharing.  I would love to tell you about Pete,  I will get my thoughts together and share with you one day.

  Congratulations on 10 months.  I am so proud of us both.  Never thought I would see this day, but now I can see a year, 5 years and beyond.  Not sure when this happened but I think it was when I was putting one foot in front of the other and just not smoking.  Onward bound, my friend.  Sending you and your family big hugs.  Onward to 11...

Hi DbAnne,  Sorry I took so long to answer but there are 10 packs to a carton.  I was literally a chimney, so glad to not do that anymore.  Keep going, it gets better and better.

Thank you so much Susan!  I can’t wait to make it to the clubhouse!! heart_eyes

And now you have arrived at the clubhouse.

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!

Catch you soon.

Well, you did it!!! Welcome to the Clubhouse! You earned your freedom! Only 7% of quitters actually accomplish this and now you are officially in the One Year Clubhouse! It always makes me smile when I read of new members to the clubhouse. Now just get through year 2 and you'll have an 80% chance of remaining quit for life. 

Youve definitely proven that you are no sissy. NICE JOB!!!
