Over a two year period Freedom was blessed in seeing true courage in action. We developed a deep admiration, respect and/or love for Kim and then came Kelly's devistating news that she'd left us. Although the sting was deep I doubt any of us thought for a second of using her passing as our mind's excuse for relapse. Just one more invaluable lesson from a most amazing woman. We miss you Kim!

We can't choose the time when we lose a loved one to life's natural cycle, but we can choose to keep a deadly drug from entering our blood serum.
One day at a time, You can if you think you can!
It is horrible for any mother or father to think about the loss of a child but should the mind ever contemplate this horrific nightmare, let it do so still free and in charge. Ilona, Wednesday morning I received a nightmare phone call that my closest friend had died in her sleep at age 50. I'm still hoping this is some bad dream and I'll awaken soon and together we'll have a chuckle over it.
You may find this hard to believe but seeing this thread again was the very first time since learning of Harriet's passing 54 hours ago that the "thought" of smoking has entered this brain. Even now it isn't a "thought" of me smoking but my sincere hope that when life visits death upon each of you, and it will, that the insanity of adding active drug addiction to your grief will be as clear as it is to me. There was always only one rule ... no nicotine today!
Breathe deep, hug hard, live long,
