Medical Problems setting in from Months 4-5

<t>Davi,<br/> Great job on the two weeks, that is an awesome accomplishment. Keep all the nicotine on the outside and things will get much better and easier. Each smoking trigger you defeat will make you stronger. Your health, pride, and self confidence will soar. One challenge, one hour, or one day...

Congratulations on your four months. I too stopped living all the lies on 1/9/11. It feels great and is getting better all the time. I'll look forward to sharing a SILVER celebtation in a couple of months. One day at a time we can do this. YQB Neal

<t>Therese,<br/> I just wanted to congratulate you and tell you that it does really get better. Everyone's quit is different, but before you know it you will rarely think about smoking. Take it one challange, one hour, or one day at a time. Each temptation that you defeat will make you stronger. You...

<t>After over four decades of being a slave to nicotine, today I reach four months of Freedom. With spring and summer upon us I still occasionally have smoking thoughts as I encounter situations for the first time as a non-smoker. These thoughts literally only last one or two seconds, as I quickly r...

<t>I'm one week short of 4 months. Time has been flying, it seems like I turned bronze yesterday. Each day has been uneventful on my journey to Freedom. I still come on the site often, but not as much as I used to. I noticed on my quit meter that I have saved $560 so far. I'm getting paid to feel go...

<t>Laura,<br/> Congatulations on Bronze! I was reading the post about your friend, and I knew the outcome right away. Do you know why? Because that was me, and I recognized the junky thinking. Luckily we know better what even one puff will lead to. I've made that mistake enough in my past. The most ...
