I never ever in my wildest dreams  thought I would posting this...smoked for   55yrs and am surprised that I was able to quit and stay quit....there were moments of course that I am sure you have all experienced....and you just keep going forward...I am so grateful that I found this group....someone was always either in the same place or right there with the right words and great suggestions...I know my husband is more grateful then many...because he doesn't have to live in a smoke filled house....etc....plus he will have me longer then either he or all my kids expected.....that makes me happy too..we have 5 kids and..have 8 grands 4 with spouses....3 greats and one on the way....they are all boys and we will soon have  a new great grandaughter due in August....I'm sure that if I were still smoking I wouldn't see them that much....so very much to gain and be happy about the time I have gained....I will turn 84 later this month and therefore I can get away with saying ....IF I CAN DO THIS ANYONE CAN.  I never wanted to hear those words...it seemed insulting before... now? I see it as encouragement...stick with your journey...you can succeed

Congratulations Kitty! Fourteen years smoke free, a birthday coming up, and a great-granddaughter on the way. You truly have a lot of wonderful reasons to celebrate. Congratulations to you on all of them. I hope you have a very Happy Birthday later this month. Thank you for staying around the forum and continuing to be a inspiration to others who quit after you. Have a great day. 
Hugs.
