Thank you so much......Yes, I am at 37 weeks and will hit 9 months in 2 more weeks!  I can't say it has not been without some struggles but so worth it.  Like I was just telling Anthony, coming home and having a baby in my arms has helped for sure, can't smoke around the baby!  

I do try to pop in every now and again just to see how everyone is doing.  It is still tax season in my world so I am really busy at work.  

Hope you are doing okay?  I think it is great that you took over the forum.

Hey Kathy, 

The first year really is a roller coaster but, as you said, it's worth it. It really does get better and better the further along you go though. It may not seem it at the start but like any roller coaster it does eventually slow down to let us off and becomes more of the journey often spoken of on the forum. I'm glad the little one is helping to keep you on track too. For me and my quit-buddies a lot of it was laughter that helped through the frustration. I remember a couple of my quit-buddies and I were talking about that roller coaster once and I remember saying, in reference to it, I think I may have got in the wrong line at this carnival, lol, but like you, we kept going and, as you said, it's so worth it. Now that roller coaster is only a remembrance and it will be for you too, I've no doubt. I think you and Freckles both are really doing amazing and I know you both will make it and be celebrating your first year of freedom from smoking in a few short months and I'm so thrilled for you both. relaxed 

Thank you for asking. I'm doing. Hope you and your family are well. 

Thank you so much too for your very kind message of support. It's so greatly appreciated. Thank you.  

I hope you're having a great week, albeit a busy one. Talk again soon. 

Have a great day. relaxed

Hi Kathy, thanks very much. And like you said you’re right behind me. I’m really looking forward to that one year milestone. I remember my last quit that was the timeframe I started to feel really comfortable. 
Hope you’re having a great SmokeFree week

Thank you for always remembering.  This week has been extremely busy for me so I have had my head buried low.  I have actually been experiencing dreams of smoking for the first time in a long time, not sure why but just go about my normal day and push it aside......I know it is those receptors healing and trying to pull me back in so I just resist.

Hopefully, this just keeps getting easier!
