I'd rather be climbing Mt Everest - it's easier

<t>Mike, You're a funny guy. I've been clean for 8 mo on the 27th. Shocking accomplishment for a 40 year addict to tobacco. I don't come to the site much now but urge you to read and read some more as knowledge is power as you well know. I just wanted to pass along some encouragement. Hang in there....

<t>Paddy, I read your post and tried to remember what it felt like at day 19-20. If I recall correctly it was a matter of the habit and the "triggers" that were a pain.
