Thanks, Julie! Yes, doing well at the moment. The whole process really is nutty, isn't it? Andrea once said, "I swear it takes a good sense of humor to quit smoking." It's like taking your brain apart and then putting it back together piece by piece--lego castle style. (Except the castle didn't take this long!)
Congratulations on 10 months! You've got this.
Hi Julie! Happy 10 months! Sounds like you are doing great! I hope you celebrated big.... you will soon be choosing your key!!!
Hello Bravehearts! Glad to hear so many of us are still going strong! I feel like I could never go back to that disgusting habit but I am staying vigilant and refuse to let complacency set in.
New season... Ugh!!! I miss Summer already!
Hi everyone! Me again Just want to check in again and let everyone know that today is my 8 month anniversary as a non smoker I have read that some people have trouble in the 8-12 month so I am keeping my guard up and ready to fight any bad thoughts that enter my head. Everyday I am feeling stronger and more secure. I truly believe that every aspect of my life has changed for the better since the day I decided to stop smoking. I am going to the gym more (swimming and yoga are my favs right now), cooking more, reading more (Julie- I am now reading The Gifted School by Bruce Holsinger and next in line is The Rumor by Elin Hildenbrand- I am patiently waiting for her new book to be released in October!) and believe it or not I have been socializing with the school moms more! I hope to hear from everyone soon! I am really very proud of all of us Bravehearts who stuck with our quits and gained our freedom from that nasty habit.
CONGRATULATIONS!!! to everyone who had reached the next milestone. Starting to think there will always a craving for a cigarette but will deal with each one when they hit.
Hope everyone is doing well and had a great summer!!
A belated congratulations to you on reaching 10 mths. You gave me some valuable help in the first days and weeks of my quit. I am still plugging along at 10 wks. now. Thanks so much for your help!

Congratulations, Leigh! I just hit 8 months (yesterday), too. I blew my best quit just after 9 months, so I'm looking forward to getting beyond that month. For me, it was more like, "I can just have one, and I can get right back on the wagon." That proved to be a big mistake. I remember the craving wasn't even all that bad, not like in earlier months. I just thought I could handle it. That's when I realized that I truly had an addiction and that my body/brain really couldn't handle it.
I'm glad you're feeling good and have found so many things to do. Swimming and yoga sound awesome! Best wishes!
Hey, January Bravehearts!!!
Congratulations on Eight Months!!!
Well done! You should all be proud of yourselves.
Have a fabulous smoke free weekend!
P.S. I apologize for my absence the past few weeks. I've been dealing with diminishing eyesight due to cataracts, as well as increasing frustration. I was unable to get surgery scheduled until this fall. I haven't been able to drive since the middle of March. Argh. My first surgery is next month. So the end is in sight (bad pun).
