Buddy Systems

Dear Joel;
Thank you for this repost today.The clarification of why the buddy link is not advocated here makes sense to me. My quit is mine. My focus needs to be on me;my reasons to choose to never take another puff.

Call Me A Quitter

<t>Dear Q, <br/> Thank you for presenting your story. It allows me to see that people that our society tends to place on pedestals (all the better for us to later throw rocks at) are equally vulnerable to being seduced by powerful addictions. We blighters down here in the trenches hear about such, m...

The best thing about my new life is ... ?

<t>Singing! That surprised me that my voice could heal so fast from 35 years of smoke; I thought I'd lost that forever... <br/> Not wheezing or coughing and less of that constant throat-clearing. <br/> Being READY. Because I don't need to find my lighter, check to see if I have enough sickerettes wi...
