Good morning Anthony,

So this weekend was a HUGE test for me, I am still away with a few friends and 3 of them are smokers. So it was tough the 1st day.....not so much yesterday.....the smell stunk SO BAD. But am happy to say because of my knowledge and this FORUM, I didn’t really even have a notion to succumb to the nasty habit. I think I was more feeling left out because all the smokers went outside and I was in house and sounded like they were having fun. Oh well no biggie. 
 

As I write this there are 4 packs of smokes on the table but I will definitely not touch them! So I say Nope....and to all struggling.....just know you are tougher than you think and if you truly put your mind to it, you might be in the same situation someday being SO PROUD OF YOURSELF! 
 

HUGS, and strength to you!

Good morning Eve,

Thanks for the warning, I am getting the odd urge just lately, I have been using the Delay tactic and not acting on it, I can't imagine the pressure you're under, so proud of you for staying strong.

Kind regards

Anthony

Oh! Did I not jump in today yet? Saw Anthony’s gorgeous full moon before I went to bed and must have gotten distracted! Squirrel! 
 

Wow Eve! That is an accomplishment! I’m very proud of you! I think you are one of the most steadily determined folks I’ve met. I absolutely admire your ability to stay present with yourself and not really future trip. It is calming and inspiring for the rest of us. Head down, eyes on the prize, you just don’t get caught up in worrying about the forever piece of this, or the “peace” will come, or any of it. You just keep plodding on. Well, I’m plodding on with you guys with my NOPE!

The full moon is amazing, Anthony. Not sure how this is done, but I assume it’s not easy. Thank you for sharing.
