  • Funny thing happened...
    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! Thank you Freedom. They always say nobody likes a quitter, but there's ...

  • Is there room in the Bronze Club?
    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. The 8 days of extra life I now have I owe to Freedom, and I suspect most people reading this would ...

  • Is there room in the Bronze Club?
    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 thro...

    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 bett...

  • Becoming An Ex-Smoker
    JoeJ, 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 the natural thi...

    I cannot thank everyone here at Freedom enough. I have been lurking for a few weeks just soaking up your knowledge and inspiration. I smoked a pack a day for a little over ten years. Over that time I had a number of quit attempts, none of which lasted longer than a few days. I did not even expect to...
