That is so true - God always turns what could have been bad and turns it into something good. I got Covid then that made me quit smoking. I now have over 4 months. Keep going. You can do it!

Hi Anthony, 

I  love to exercise. It makes me feel better. I am sorry I missed it this last few weeks due to illness. I find it is great for stress and anxiety such as from a quit.

I hope you will be one of my likeminded friends ..

Yeah i believe that is key to be around like minded individuals, i thought i could hang around people that smoke but i saw that i a am not yet ready. That one individual being my dad i saw him about 3 weeks back and smoked a few with him, didnt enjoy them just wanted to keep him company, but immediately quit the same night and just started from the beginning again, i almost slipped again here with another person i met at bus stop, but i did a quick mental exercise that i would want to stop after i had the cig, it was difficult to say no, it was a mental battle.. Im glad i did, i just cant hang out w smokers yet, it may be a long while.

I have heard of that happening to a lot of people, it takes a few tries to rid of us of this horrible addiction, i just reflect on what it has done to my dad, he is 74 and nicotine has destroyed him, its such a cause of so much suffering. I hope one day as a society we can just outlaw some things, i quit smoking marijuana as well cause i went to a dentist appointment and dentist said my blood pressure was high which is a side effect of marijuana use, they make it seem so innocent.. I was hungry all the time munchies, blood pressure was up, they hide so much from the public.

 Im sorry you got covid i hope you are getting the necessary attention for it.

Hi !

Thanks for the note. Do you remember we used to write on board here last time I was here? I'm sorry about your Dad and your health trouble.  I found that very interesting about the Marijuana use. I have never thought about the fact that they are hiding stuff from us but I am not surprised.  Par for the course.

I remember writing on here. 

Yeah as far as my dad its just really sad, i mean i see other older people that are in a way different situation, that go walking, watch their diet, i mean i know a 90 year old that does aerobics and swims laps and is in excellent shape, besides that, sooner or later nicotine will take everything from us, even our simple ability to be happy. Taking our happiness away is the worst part of it..

Im not perfect i have relapses so many many times, but i keep wanting to quit cause i know its a trap. you know its a trap from the first one you ever had, simple thing is that it so addictive, and subtle. I believe the same with marijuana its addictive local and state governments need money so they can tax it and make peoples health bad. 

Have a nice smoke free day if you can....
