    Jaden: At 22 days quit, you have accomplished a huge achievement. Trust me on this: as long as you stay true to your committment to never take another puff, it will get better and easier in the days ahead. Comfort will get here. When you mentioned that your friend only smokes when drinking, it made ...

  • 2008 Accomplishment PARADE
    Thanks for a great parade, Kay! (...congrats on your "non-anniversary" 5). I lived 2008 (and '07, and '06 ...and a good part of '05) without one single urge, craving, or thought of smoking ... not a ripple in the inner calm of my mind as an ex-smoker. This is the grand payoff of the decision I made ...

  • One week without cigarettes
    Hello Candles (Joej popped up the "acceptance" thread that I was heading for... I just gotta get off this dial up and go broadband). I just want to say that from my own experience, I hit the kind of despondency that you've written about at 4 months into my quit. You are not alone in feeling a sense ...
