I AM GOLD!

<t>I became GOLD as of last Monday night, 11:00 p.m. <br/> <br/> Comments? Well, I haven't had bronchitis at all or even a cough for a year now. I usually average three bouts a year as a smoker. So much for those 'allergies'- guess they weren't allergies after all. I feel calmer and stronger- health...

Finally BRONZE today!

<t>YO Philip is bronze! <br/> <br/> I'd like to post a pic of a bronze shield but I can't. Just imagine it in your head. It's inscribed with those tobacco eating snakes. <br/> <br/> Amazing how fast you'll go from bronze to silver- then you'll exclaim, "My gosh! Has it really been six months already...

<t>A lovely spring day yesterday. Plum blossoms everywhere, and the cherry's buds were swollen and almost ready to bloom. I rode my bike halfway up a 600 meter mountain. When I reached the top, I suddenly had a very strong craving for a cigarette. "Huh?," I thought, " It can't possibly be a cigarett...

Loss of a Great Quitter

Your story has touched me in ways I cannot describe. My compassion goes out to you, and though I don't know you, I wish I could reach out and give you a big hug. God bless.
