Neal, Joel produced the following video clip that we hope brings you comfort.  There's two links because YouTube for some reason appears to again be limiting clips to ten minutes.  As I wrote earlier, we're each with you in spirit and you're in our prayers.   John

I think of you every day.  I hope you are healing, and your soul is happy.  You are brave.  Tomorrow I turn silver and I dedicate the last 6 month of my recovery and freedom to you.  

Your sister in freedom,

Hi Neal, I am beyond words with how sad I am to have read your story; I had just started reading your posts from the beginning for some reason, and then I read about your diagnosis. I tell you, I've never met you but if I had a magic genie grant me just one wish for my whole life, I would ask that the clock be turned back for you. I promise to uphold you and your family, your daughter and all the others who love you, in prayer, and I will share your story as needed with anyone who has shown as much strength and fortitude in the face of hardship. And by the way, you said the addiction will win by taking your life early. NO. You win, please believe that, because you are not smoking or trying to smoke as you go through this. You still win, and your story will change lives. I know it.  Prayers for you, may you feel strengthened and believe that God can comfort and carry you now.  -Sylvia, healing for 33 days now after 25 years of nicotine addiction.

Neal,I hope and pray that you are feeling okay.  I too think about you everyday and I hope that you are getting better.  I noticed that you are six months nicotine free and wanted to say congratulations to you from the bottom of my heart.  You, me and everyone on this site are kicking this addiction, were helping others kick this addiction and were hopefully stopping anyone from starting.  I remember your post around three months, the one where you felt like you were lost and John, Joel and others helped you get out.  So thanks for grabbing my hand and making sure I got out with you.  Six months, silver.  Congratulations Neal.
