  • I'm Bronze
    Yay, Vicki! Welcome to the Bronze club! I'm so glad you didn't turn to nicotine when you were struggling through some tough times.

    Congratulations, Ed, on your Bronze. I remember your early posts, in which you eloquently expressed your reasons for quitting. (I also remember mention of a certain poem that will be revealed in another nine months). Fantastic job reaching this impressive milestone! steve 98days

    Hi Katie, I loved reading your post. In many ways I felt like I was reliving the first month of my quit. Quitting smoking can seem terrifying, overwhelming, impossible. But you educated yourself. And now you know it is possible. You're doing it! Those triggers are something, aren't they? Who would h...

    Congratulations, Mari! Double Green is a really big deal! It's proof that you're in this for the long haul (like forever!). You're right, bad days will still be there. But they'll have nothing to do with nicotine or cigarettes, no matter how hard your junkie may try to convince you otherwise. You ar...

  • How much are cigs where you live?
    San Francisco. Red state America says we're too liberal, and I have to admit we do spend liberally on cigarettes. Camel Lights. Always over $5, sometimes $6. steve 88days
