Sounds so insignificant, BUT

<t>The others that responded are right. . . that's no insignificant milestone. Great job! Next time you have a "trigger" to smoke, remember the donuts and remember how great you felt by having an evening out that didn't involve nicotine and all the bad things that surround it. <br/> <br/> Angie <br/...

<t>JC, that is great news. Embrace your quit and remind yourself each day how proud you are of yourself. <br/> <br/> Isn't it great to go through an event that you normally would have smoked and not even thing about smoking? That's happening more and more often. <br/> <br/> Angie</t>
