Joanne and Beccy, Thank you, Joanne for bringing this up to where I could find it. Beccy, thank you for showing me some of what I can look forward to! I'm printing it out, to help me remember why I quit. Thanks!! Keilit
Beccy...Thank-you so much for the inspiration....how wonderful of you to motivate all of us...Can't wait until I feel like you do....and I'm glad to know that someday soon I'll be there feeling the same...THANKS!!! Your Quit Friend, Kim
omg lol i forgot all about this thread! wow, i am so glad that it is still able to motivate and encouage others! here i am at 7 months and counting and life has never been better.
the other nite i was informed of a rather frustrating thing... i was told that the next step in my divorce was going to cost me yet another $200+ ! I was sooo ticked when i heard it and the very first thing i thought was this.. "GRRRR i better take some deep breaths and drink some herbal tea". a few hours later i realized that i hadnt even considered smoking as an option!!!!! not only did i not consider it as an option.. i didnt even consider staying mad or anything else. all of that i have learned here at freedom. ITS SO AWESOME! lol
trust me when i say that your worse moment as an ex smoker is still better than any good moment as a smoker!
thanks so much for mentioning your divorce. Only when I read this did I remember that I am actually in the same position as you, and like you I had not associated divorce stress with lighting up. I just try to get on with it most of the time. One day we'll be divorced and twice as free: free from ex-husbands and free from nicotine
