Wow! I have never read this thread before. A very belated but very sincere thank you to our OBob. And thank you to Lynn for suggesting it in another thread today. What a beautifully written set of observations. Spot on.

I remember planning to respond to this thread a few days before the Fourth of July, as kind of an anniversary thing. See, this was the last major challenge I had on my way to total comfort. Funny thing was that, despite ending up at the exact same bar, with the exact same smokiness on the 4th, I totally forgot not only to think about smoking, but to even remember that it had even been an issue 2 years prior.

Anyhow, I noticed that a couple of people were having some tests at around 6 months, and thought I'd pop this up to see if they could relate.

Just found another little treasure from OBob, particularly special today, for this year's crop of silver quitters.

OBob, how was the bar this year???

Happily nicotine free for Two months, three days, 23 hours, 32 minutes and 54 seconds. A grand total of 1494 nicotine sticks not ingested, saving $508.15 of my hard-earned money. Life saved: 5 days, 4 hours, 30 minutes.

I am not a silver quitter YET! But I am determined to never take another puff.
This is such a great post.
I have quit nicotine for over 4 months now and life just gets better.
But O Bob's post reminds me that I have experienced triggers and temptation socially of late. I have found myself wishfully imagining I could take just one nicotine device, (or maybe a packet) just one night of **** bent smoking - those most enjoyable cigarettes, the ones that lit up an idea or anchored a shared experience. Ah the romance my dears, the romance...
I am so grateful to this site and the education I get about addiction. I love learning how life is like without a hijacked brain!
I have learnt that I can re-wire my brain with every new trigger to nicotine consumption defeated to be calmer, to be free...

Moira, smober 18 weeks and one day, free forever!
