Thank you Joel for reminding that every day is a victory. I needed your words. I have completed 50 days after that feeling of celebration for every day is not necessary but it is not true. I am always in danger and so every day if i am free i must be proud and celebrate to keep commited for tomorrow. I was not geting daily digest from few days. So today I found the needed words form you online. I really need your words of support. Daily digest I don't why i am not gettin in my email.

Thank you Joel. What a great message at a great time. I thought to myself when reading your post "For members not celebrating an important milestone today..." That I have not celebrated a milestone as of yet. I'm still waiting to be Green!!

Thank you, Joel, for this important message: every day that I don't smoke is a special and significant day.

I remember when I used to say to myself: "I wish I didn't smoke". And now, that magical, longed for, dream day is a reality.

However, I did have a milestone yesterday -- the quit meter informed me that I had saved one day of my life. What a gift that was -- an extra day of being alive! So I decided to spend the day as though it were that bonus day that I wouldn't have been allowed to enjoyed had I not quit.

You know what? It probably wasn't that much different from any other day except for the fact I relished every minute of it and felt exceptionally alive and grateful all day long. It might have been one of the happiest days of my life.

Thank you, Joel. I needed to hear that. I had a rough day and your message made me realize that every day I don't have nicotine is a gift I give myself.
