  • I AM GOLD!
    I became GOLD as of last Monday night, 11:00 p.m. 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- healthier overall, an...

  • Finally BRONZE today!
    YO Philip is bronze! 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. Amazing how fast you'll go from bronze to silver- then you'll exclaim, "My gosh! Has it really been six months already?" But at the same time, th...

  • SIIIIIILLLLLLLVVVVVVVERRRR!!!!!
    I am SILVER! Interesting, I always knew that smoking probably made my bronchitis and hacking 'worse.' Funny how now that I've quit it's gone COMPLETELY. Those so-called 'pollen allergies' that I used to suffer from are gone for good too. Similarly, I used to think that 'smoking isn't helping.' Sorry...

  • My diary
    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 cigarette."...

  • 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. Philip (Three months quit, 28 year former smoker)

    Just turned Bronze this very minute. I actually feel a little bronzish glow. And the thing is this: IT HASN'T BEEN THAT DIFFICULT. I've heard it said several times that it's not the quitting that's so hard; it's the staying quit. And yet the very idea that I should deliberately and directly inhale s...

    Over two months without a single puff. I think it was about two weeks ago that I got used to my normal brain chemestry and no longer feel groggy, yawny, and senile half the time. I feel so much calmer and happier now. Stress has dropped a fathom. Even jokes are funnier. Sometimes I get just plain gi...
