Hi,
I started here when I first quit. You all were so kind. I now have a quit that is over a year old and still going strong. Thanks for all your support. Hey, does anyone use the chat room???

So glad that you have stayed quit and a year? Wow, that makes you an old fogey here! It would be nice if you would put together a little "ramble" based on your experiences. Mainly it lets you brag a bit, but also gives hope to new quitters. Many nights I have read the words of those quitters that were able to stay quit! Congratulations!

Ok Tess...here is a ramble of my quit...
I quit on January 8, 2011. I had smoked for 26 years and I still can't believe I quit. I loved smoking. It was my most favorite thing to do. It was my reward for every aspect of my life. I choose smoking over many things, like a walk in the park, a ride on a roller coaster, a hike with my daughter, a pick up soccer game with my son. Oh how much I missed due to those little white cancer sticks. I was lucky because I had full family support for the first few weeks. I spent much of it in bed because I was so darn tired and when I wasn't sleeping I was crying. Oh my, the crying was the worst but I got some good advice..Go see your doctor you crazy woman...and the doc helped me. I had some losses too and they were tough. My 26 year marriage ended and boy I could have used a smoke then. But I didn't. I lost some very dear friends and boy I could have used a smoke then. But I didn't You see so many things that were not so good going on and smoking didn't make them any easier. Funny thing is that no matter how much I wanted a puff I just couldn't bring myself to thinking about ever ever going through hell week of my quit again. So, what words of advice do I have for anyone just starting out, just these...I get it. Take care of yourself. Spend your quit money on something shiney. Talk to people who are on the ride too. Enjoy it when you go into the doctor's office and for the first time you don't have to check off the "do you smoke, how much" box on the medical form.
Take care

Thank you for sharing. Rambles do help the newbies know that no matter what life throws at us we don't have to smoke! We all learned it the hard way

Again, Congratulations and have a bowl of ice cream on me!
