I just wanted to say this. I was reading this thread today and saw that a month ago JoAnne brought this up for me, I guess I was having a bad day. I honestly don't remember anymore.
Today I had another bad day, but it was still a wondeful day. Because no matter how badly things went, or how I embarasssed myself in front of my fiance's family (ugh! I think falling into the pool fully dressed, says enough here!)
I NEVER thought about having a smoke, even with other people who were there smoking like chimneys.
So, for all the lurkers and newbies, it really does get better, and we really do learn how to control our emotions without nicotine. And it feels great!

I think a few people seem like they could use this today.

I think with the recent tragedies that we have been encountering as a country and a world-the concept of "Bad Days" is being felt by many. I think that the message in this string is so important under such time periods.

That while days that were and still are being experienced by some of our members are possibly some of the worst days they have ever experienced in their lives and hopefully will be the worst they will ever have to encounter again-the fact that they got through them without smoking is a tremendous tribute to their ability to remain smoke free.

I hate to use the term "good day" in reference to these particular days and the smoking issue because the concept of these being "good days" for anything seems to be beyond comprehension. But the fact that they survived these days smoke free should prove to them and the rest of us beyond a shadow of a doubt that even under the worst conditions imaginable-your life can go on without smoking. Without question your life will go on better and less complicated and you will actually be better able to cope with the bad times as well as the good times as long as you remain nicotine free by always remembering to never take another puff!
