  • A Question of Craving
    Hey Ceasefire! Whoo, I remember that feeling. I used to "treat" myself to a butt(or 2 or 3) every time I accomplished anything. (I accomplish considerably more since I quit.) It's part of the way you weave your brains demand for the drug into every hour of your life. It's hard to realize sometimes t...

  • Where exactly am I?
    Hi Sam, You're a smart guy. I went through 2 episodes of severe tonsilitis and still went back to smoking. I was so stupid! I thought a week in the hospital was a great chance to cut back and become a strictly social smoker. (ya, sure) I was totally ignorant of the law of addiction. With family and ...

  • Turning the Corner... Acceptance
    Man, you sure can say it. Me vs. eternity. That was the precipice my quit teetered on. It was right after I turned bronze. I never felt so scared. It was like looking in a mirror and seeing no reflection. I had to make up my mind who was going to be looking back at me from then on. It was a very hum...

    Whoa! AuntBea! Hang on there sister! I'm not getting the part where pumping poison into your lungs will make the hassles go away. You will just have another bigger problem. With everyone unloading their baggage on you wouldn't it be better if you kept a reason to be proud of yourself? Keep your eye ...

    Wow Joel, that trip down memory lane was a rush! I was green when I wrote about my relapse. It's been quite a journey. I couldn't even imagine then how happy and comfortable I would be without cigarettes a year later. I knew I was on the right track here at freedom though. The truth just has a certa...

  • clearing my throat
    Hi Dii, Like they say always check with your doc to be sure. The same thing happened to me in my second to third month. My sinuses were draining into the back of my throat and sometimes my voice would just cut out, kind of crack. It felt very uncomfortable. It went away gradually and as I recall it ...
