Hey there,

I hope you are doing well! 

My garden is a decent size plot at a community gardens space... The property is quite large with fruit trees and an herb garden that we all tend to and share. We just harvested a bunch of star fruit. There's some cherry trees too that are coming up.

The garden has been such a gift to me because I received my plot two months into my quit. I had been on a waiting list for awhile.

Gardening became a place to go to distract, manage and cope through the withdrawal period of cessation!

I love it now.

Have you picked up any new hobbies or recreations since your quit?

You got it! Well I think I'll just pass the ingredients over to the chef and he can cook you one up! Here you go Vic!

How have you been doing Wuffie? Have you found a peace in your quit? How's work going?

I hope you are doing well

I believe I have found some peace. Work is the same smile I've been lying low working on some personal things now that I'm over the worst of cessation. I still come and read in between and hopefully soon I can maybe help others from time to time. How is everything your way? Hope all is well! A big hello to everyone else as well!  Hope everyone is ready for the holidays!!

Hey,

I'm glad that you have found some peace in the quit.

I relate to working on some personal things now that the worst of cessation is over...

A lot of what I'm focusing on is relational because nicotine addiction filled relational spaces of my life.

I'm relearning people priorities and satisfaction in relationships... I'm a little awkward but that's ok ... I'm learning. 

I'm glad everyone is hanging in there and thriving in our new lives smoke free... I'll definitely be keeping in touch.

14 months is incredible! We are almost to 1 1/2 years!! Very cool. 2 years will be a big milestone too. Statistics of relapse go waaayyy down after 2 years too.

Keeping keeping on

God bless everyone!!!

Happiest Thanksgiving to you all!

Hope everyone had an awesome Thanksgiving!! Christmas is right around the corner and I am working on decorating. I bought a new tree and it's almost nice enough to not decorate. I really like the bare look these days so maybe I will just use a light hand with ornaments this year. Maybe just the buri woodland creatures this year. How is everyone doing? Hope all is smooth and no one got injured shopping yesterday!!
