Thank you for the reminder that every day nicotine free is worth celebrating!!!

I needed reinforcement, especially now on the weekend before Christmas.. the triggers are frequent tonight, but will remember to be proud and continue NTAP.

Thanks, Joel! After yesterday (a rough day) I'm glad I read this! I forgot to congratulate myself for getting through a day of stress without taking that fatal puff. Yay, me!

Right On!
We all share the victory of "today" .

When I 1st stumbled onto whyquit.com, I had given up on my dream of ever being a ex smoker. BUT the more I read other people's postings, (whether after one victory day or many victorious days) I found myself thinking that if all these people can do it, I CAN DO IT. I am the only one holding myself back from my dream!

I have proven to myself that my dream CAN be a reality come true.

Three years smoke free and this is still one of my favorite reminders.  I know I'll never go back.  I've been tested and I know that I don't need them.  I'll trust those who have tried it that there's no such thing as "just one".  Why risk it?
Sometimes I forget to celebrate a day, but hardly a day goes by that I am not happy and proud that I finally reclaimed my freedom from nicotine.
Every day is a victory over my past.

You got me!  But I see I'm not the only one.  I was just curious as to what you would call someone celebrating an hour of freedom.  This journey isn't easy and every challenge must be celebrated and remembered so the ex-smoker can recall the excitement and embrace the next one.
