Good Morning all,

1st I would like to congratulate Patrick on achieving success! Today marks his 1 year anniversary!  Congratulations Patrick! Hope you celebrate your achievement today! 

Also I would like to pledge my NOPE, not one puff ever! Yes it is POSSIBLE......as many of us have read just on this forum, we have seen people come back years later, or on their journey we get to congratulate them! Yes it’s a tough addiction to break! But WE CAN DO IT.

Thank you Eve, and thank you to this forum for the support that helped me get here. In the beginning, I really didn't believe it was possible to break my addiction (40 years of smoking a pack/day)....it was, and still IS!

I am proud to pledge NOPE to continue my life of health and freedom from addiction.

Best to all,

Quit July 25

Good Morning Everyone! .. I am joining today to take my NOPE pledge today.  Things are very crazy on my end but this is my LAST week of these crazy hours and life will get a little more back to normal next week .. I will have the time to spend more time on this forum then and do expect to see a lot of me just passing some time.  Look forward to chit chat with everyone at that time!

In addition to my normal chronic pain issues I ended up at Dr office last night as was experiencing some horrible additional pain on my left side of torso after doing some bending/twisting in yoga and working it hard .. TOO hard .. turns out I have an oblique muscle pull .. this thing is incredilby painful .. hurts to even blow dry my hair .. pour a cup of coffee .. scoop litter box and so forth .. said it will take weeks to heal .. no yoga during this time and try not to bend and tiwist .. more meds to take .. son of a gun .. if it's not one thing it's another.

Am getting through this quit though and that is the important part .. I am going to give it another 100% today and stay clean all day and night from that junk.  Want/need body nice and clean to heal this muscle and also have knee surgery coming up and some dental work coming up .. sounds like a fun summer, hah? .. Big time boring summer and covid does not help matters.

Well .. that ALL said I hope this day treats you well.  What a wonderful day to be smoke free!  I ask the next person to join me in on this pledge today.

AND .. CONGRATULATIONS PATRICK! .. One YEAR .. that is AWESOME! .. You have kicked butt and serve as an inspiration ... one year is NO JOKE! .. Keep on rocking it!
