To my smoking friends who quite in July 2022. I hope all of you are doing well and beginning to feel the beneficent affects of being smoke free.  Isn’t it a wonderful feeling to begin expelling the grunge in your lungs?  This is a sure sign that the body is beginning to heal.  And isn’t it marvelous to wake up in the morning with a fog free brain, with no smokey residue circulating inside your head as a result of the previous day’s cigarettes? And don’t you feel already more relaxed throughout the day without having to step outside for a smoke or to attend an event or whatever without the need to bring a pack of smokes and to excuse yourself so you can withdraw for a cigarette?  And how much better you feel about yourself without the stench of a cigarette like a smelly halo above your head?  Yes, this a gift which we must not take for granted. 

Our Quit is truly THE PEARL OF GREAT PRICE!!!!  Lately I have been getting on my knees to give thanks for my progress to date.  I believe in miracles, don’t you?  We are accomplishing what we never thought was possible.  LET US ALL GIVE THANKS FOR OUR NEW LIFE.  WE ARE REBORN!!!!

Hi Anthony. Yes I'm feeling some benefits. It will take awhile for this old body to recuperate after 50 years of the death sticks. It's the best thing I can do and will do for myself. Take care and enjoy the freedom

Hi, All:  Hope everyone is doing well and remaining faithful to their Quit. In one week it will have been two months since my Quit. I couldn’t feel any better or prouder. After falling so often within only hours of my firmer Quits I’m truly gratified I’m still on the Path. 
 

that being said I congratulate all of you for staying with this forum. For me it’s become my lifeline to a some free existence.

Thanks Denim. Next week I will be visiting friends. On the 24th we're going to Laughlin nv to see Dionne Warwick in concert. Getting excited about getting out of town for a couple of weeks. Take care

Hey Ginger, 

I'm sure you must be excited. That is a treat! What a great way to celebrate and to just have a bit of fun! I'm so happy for you. That sounds wonderful. I hope you all have a terrific time at the concert and throughout your two week trip. I also hope you all make a lot of wonderful, new, and happy memories together. I wish all of you safe, happy, and fun travels. 

Have a great day. relaxed

Hello, Delphi non smokers:  October 17 will be my three month anniversary.  I am doing amazingly well.  But today I woke up wanting a cigarette.  How pernicious those smoking thoughts/urges.  They want to bring me down back into the deathly smoking chain.  I find that in spite of myself I am romancing a smoke by saying to myself:  Wow, wouldn’t it be nice to have a smoke now.?  No one will know.  I am alone on a private retreat.  I can smoke out in the woods so no one will know.  Only I will know and , of course, I can smoke the entire pack of Marboro Reds, and begin again tomorrow.  

I have done the above countless times with the end result I go out and have those smokes but instead of quitting the next day I run out and buy another pack promising I will quit the next day.  

I would love to hear your comments on how I can best rid myself of that temporary craving.  Just writing it takes the edge off.  

I NEED YOUR HELP.  I DO NOT WANT TO HAVE ONE CIGARETTE.  I KNOW WHAT WILL HAPPEN.  DURING MY PRIVATE RETREAT I WILL MAKE TIME TO KEEP ON POSTING AND TIME TO READ YOUR ENCOURAGING POSTS.  

THANK YOU FOR YOUIR HELP.  ANTHONY
