Good Morning!

Beautiful morning to do stuff, then why am sitting on my IPad? Lol........but of course I today Pledge Nope! The other night I sat with a smoker and it smelled SO GOOD. He offered one to me, but I said No thanx. Then we had a whole conversation about how some people can stop when they want (yes I know these people) , but explained to him that if I smoked I would be back to buying them. I know me! The Nicodemon failed! So be strong everyone and just say NO!

Hugs to all.......please join me!

Hi there, Eve,

I will gratefully join you in pledging NOPE today, we really are stronger together!

You are so right, we can never have just 1 cigarette because we will right back to where we started. I blew an almost 6 year quit after my grandmother & sister died within months of each other. When I went home for the funerals I stayed at my aunt's house & she was a smoker. One day she offered me one & I thought to myself "I'm strong, I can have just one" WRONG! I ended up smoking for 6 more years until I found this forum. Moral of the story is that this is an addiction, and a nasty one at that. We can never let our guard down because you never know...maybe you can have just one, but I'm betting that will never be the case. I know that if I ever smoke again I will never quit. That's one of the reasons why I still come here almost every day to make my pledge.

So today we pledge Not One Puff Ever for all the world to hear...who wants to join us?

Have a fantastic smoke free day,

(((BIG HUGS)))

Right there with you Eve and Kitty, pledging NOPE.

Was offered one in a dream the other night and was so ready to smoke it but thought about y’all and turned it down.  So from this I can reiterate, .a quit group makes a huge difference.

Gee...have not had that happen in person.  Yuck.....Good for you for turning it down Eve and for you sharing that story Kitty.

Keep up the good work and I hope all are having a great Labor Day weekend!

Anyone to join us?
