Funny thing happened...

<t>I was polishing off my bronze medal and it began to develop a silvery hue to it. Sure enough, it was because I've now been quit for 6 MONTHS!!!! This was a pipe dream in the early stages of my quit that has now become a reality! <br/> <br/> Thank you Freedom. They always say nobody likes a quitte...

Is there room in the Bronze Club?

<t>Thanks everybody. The responses here show what a tremedous group this is. I know that I would not have quit without this education and support. This truly is the greatest group of drug addicts around. <br/> <br/> The 8 days of extra life I now have I owe to Freedom, and I suspect most people read...

Is there room in the Bronze Club?

<t>Three months with no nicotine!!!! The thought of making it this far at the beginning was daunting, to say the least, but thanks to Freedom and all of its members, I learned the secret to quitting - NEVER TAKE ANOTHER PUFF - it works. It has been sometime since I have had to chant that to get me t...

<t>Thank you, JoeJ. There really is no chance of getting anything past you. LIke I was saying in my last post, I was in a bit of a funk the last few days. So much so that I was not even feeling the need to celebrate my own GREENING! Although I'm looking a little more green today, I am feeling much b...

<t>JoeJ, <br/> <br/> Great work pulling this one up, as it really hit home today. The last week or so I felt as if I was in a bit of a funk. From my Freedom Education, it seemed like the 'depression phase' with a lot of bargaining mixed in. However, last night it occurred to me that not smoking was ...
