Thoughts on a 5+ year quit

Letter to my friend who wants to know how I did it

<t>Hey! That's my post! Tee hee! <br/> <br/> Thank goodness I quit. Can you imagine being a smoker? What a drag! My friend still smokes, you know. We don't talk about it much anymore. She is already pretty wheezy, and she is only 25. We used to run together but that ended a long time ago. I've point...

unexpected side effect of quitting: confidence!

<t>Hi, this is Alex. I quit quite a while ago--it's been about two and a half years, now. Some of you may remember me. I was very vocal on these boards for a long time after I quit, but life went on and my quit got easier and easier to deal with, until finally I barely thought of it anymore. <br/> <...
