<t>To Nevada Girl-Silver (how appropriate) from DesertRat-Gold -- Whee haw!!! Good for you! I kind of lost touch with you when I changed jobs but I never doubted your resolve and strength. Quitters like us become great examples for others who are still struggling with the demon. And in a state like ...

Tell a newbie how how many seconds a day you still want a cigarette

<t>I can't honestly say I never think about smoking -- I do. But the thought passes so quickly it's almost like I didn't have it in the first place -- weird. It is so truly wonderful not to crave such a destructive element in my life, truly wonderful that I wouldn't dream of putting my precious body...

I Can't Quit or I Won't Quit

<t>Thanks, Joel. I'm quit for three months now and am trying to be the inspiration for my 30 year old daughter. She's seen me fail several times, and because she emulates so much else of what I've done in my life, she thinks she can keep getting away with smoking for many more years also. She doesn'...

Call Me A Quitter

<t>Twelve years -- wow! I'm hanging on to my 15+ days like it's gold (or should I say like it's the life preserver that it is). I want to be constantly aware how grateful I am that I am not smoking. And I'm grateful to Quitter and Joel and all the rest of you people out there who have been keeping m...
