On my 3rd day. Just pulled into hotel after 14 hour drive. Was a bit concerned about gas stops (3), but I was actually back on the road before I realised getting a pack didn't even cross my mind. Surprised me. 

Did have a few loud, not for church goer ummm...  conversations with my addiction. Of course it had nothing to say for itself, because it knows I'm right. ;)

Now a 2 hour trek in tug o the mountains for 11 days.... no choice, but not to smoke. Pitty any bear I run across lol.

Congrats Jupiter

Hi October Ex-Smokers,

Check out Brad's story when he quit smoking.  I remember his story help me keep my eyes on the prize = freedom.

I just passed my one year anniversary. Last year at this time I couldn’t even think in terms of weeks or months and definitely not a year!  But the days went by and turned to weeks, then months and finally I have reached a year smoke free. Smoking is just a passing thought now. When I see other people smoking now I feel sorry for them. Smoking truly is a circle of addiction that is only broken when we stop feeding the nicotine monster his “fix”. 

This journey may not be the easiest one you take but it will be the most important one towards a better life. 

I came across this poster online and it really helped me a lot to keep this in mind....,

Welcome Dan and congrats on your decision to get rid of this addiction.  Settle in and read everything you can about this addiction, it will help you tremendously. Post often, stay in touch with all your quit buddies, it keeps you in the right frame of mind. Don't let yourself miss something that will destroy you, rejoice that you are getting free.  Wishing you all the best.
