Dear Denim, Cindi and Mike,

Huge congratulations to all three of you on three years smoke-free - that is just wonderful, and I hope you all celebrated in style.

I'm back here again after falling prey to the 'just one' idea - currently on Day 4, and feeling good about things so far.  You are living proof that this is not only doable, but also a great thing to do.  I'm feeling all inspired, so thank you.

Big, smoke-free hugs to you all.

Congratulations to us Denim for 3 years!!!!!! It is truly amazing to me. I am so sorry I missed our day on here but don't think for a second I didn't think about all you on Tuesday. You all literally saved my life and I am eternally grateful. Unfortunately I'm in Alabama right now dealing with failing parents. My mom fell Saturday night and was in the hospital and now transferred to inpatient care. My dad finally realized (a bit late) that they really need to move back to Ohio. So I am down here getting affairs in order and cleaning out their trailer. My mom is a bit of a hoarder so it's been difficult. We are meeting with a realtor tomorrow and I have to be home Sunday because my daughter is watching  the dogs. Anyway....I am still so proud of all of us and thank you for all your support. Love you all like family.

Hey Suzy, 

Thank you so much for your sweet message and for helping to get us get here when we started out. We’ve found that roller coaster does stop to let us off, so hang in there, and it’ll stop for you too. relaxed 

We’re all so happy you came back. It’s great to see you posting and staying close to the forum. It’s one of the best things we can do and I look forward to celebrating your upcoming 2nd week milestone with you this weekend. 

I’ve missed a lot of messages since the party but I’m trying to catch up again. There’s been a lot going on recently. I got a chance to log on in the wee hours but, after I posted the first message to Marge, I fell asleep where I was sitting. I was so tired. Anyway, here I am trying again. Things will be continue to be busy here at least for the next three weeks but I’m going to try to get back on here each chance I get. I have to say though, after falling asleep the way I did, that I feel fortunate my hand wasn’t on the blasted keyboard, lol. So if you see zzzzzzzzzzzz, or some other nonsense posted by me, I guess we’ll know what happened. joyblush 

Okay, I’m going to get on with a bit of that catching up but we’ll talk more soon.

I’m so sorry to hear about your Mom falling. I hope she’s recovering okay. I’m also sorry to hear what all of you are going through. I hope everything went good with the realtor and the move. Sending love, caring thoughts, and best wishes to all of you.

Hey Marge, 

Thank you for your message and for helping us through that first difficult year. Through the milestones, the ups, downs, twist and turns. You supported us, cheered and encouraged us, and informed us. We’re all so grateful to you for that and are happy that you’re here celebrating this milestone with us too. Thank you! Also, big congratulations to you on celebrating six years this month. relaxed
