  • My burden fell with a THUMP!
    Four years and I'm still here and freeeeeee!!!! I figured I'd better let you all know lest anyone thinks I returned to the chains. Never, never, never. I still am happy I don't stink, I don't have that post nasal drip, phlegm in my throat, wasted money or health worries. I have even gone beyond my q...

  • Update
    Hello all, I am now two years, three months and twenty plus days since I smoked. I can tell you I never want them, I despise the time and health they took from me and I love being totally free of those burdensome time killers. I had two young girls at work tell me today how they admire me for eating...

  • 2 YEARS GOLD!
    Hello my fantastic free friends! I am SO very appreciative for the love you spoke to me on my second year anniversary. I was sitting here telling my husband I just got off the phone with my cousin (25 yo) who spent the night in the ED with chest pain that she needs to quit! He said, "hey, isn't toda...

  • Gold with a little silver on top!
    I let yesterday go by without congratulating myself! Wow. A year and a half. I bet some folks thought I wouldn't make it. Well I did and I will never again be a victim. Difference this time is I do not have any inkling or desire to ever smoke again. Before I was denying myself something I wanted. I ...

    Amen! If Dad did it you can too! I wish my Dad had when he had his first cath and cardiologist visit. No, he kept on and 7 years later we lost him in bypass surgery. He was 54, the same age as his Dad when he had his first heart attack. His Dad had the second and last at 64. Sad huh? I went on 12 ye...

    So glad to see you pushing and determined and positive. So many come on here and are fighting with themselves still over CAN I do this. Mindset can affect progress. You have the right attitude and will soar! I am NOT saying it is easy. At least not at first, but it never gets worse than the first pa...

  • Calm waters are ahead Stormee!
    Hi Stormee,  I fortunately have a spouse who is a never smoker. I had to look at him for awhile and take notes on how one actually "lives" not smoking. Well for starters, he was a lot calmer. I have found my calmness too. I cannot understand what it is like to quit with a smoker but I know ppl who h...

    Lovely tribute Prucat. I read Kim's story too, looking at those pictures just breaks my heart to think of the actual pain she endured. Kelly, I hope you know that her story helped me so much.

  • Hello 2012!
    I simply cannot believe I just started my second calendar year of not smoking! Isn't that a beautiful thing? It feels like a lifetime ago. Wow, I am so much happier and even though the memories of the initial struggle remain and took time to fade, the joy stays! They feeling good and happy and proud...

    I am a rambling gal myself. At least I was when my quit was all-consuming and I was in the heat for the fight FOR my life. I love this forum and the people who give their time and heart to us.  I, too, finally came to realize that smoking IS life or death. Might be a slow, back seat contributor as f...

    I think about Neal and how his story ended. I am so proud of him. I am so thankful for him. I am also thankful he knew freedom if for only a little while. He won. He truly won. My Grandfather was diagnosed in April, 3 years ago and we lost him in 6 months. He suffered the last 4 months terribly. Lun...

    I found I continued to feel better, tasted more and find the smoke smell highly offensive. My nose works a little too well! I remember loving smelling so good, even at the end of the day. I NEVER will smell like cigarettes again, at least none that I smoked! I love never having to worry about my bre...

Read here, immerse yourself in the knowledge and you will not fail if you follow the one rule. No nicotine inside of you. Just don't. Eveytime you deny yourself you become stronger. I am so sorr...

    Still rolling on without any problems. I am so looking forward to the holidays. I don't seem to mind the cold as much since I don't have to go outside every few hours. Funny how it was such an ordeal to bundle up and stand outside smoking 10 o' clock in January, 20 degrees, but you bet your behind I...
