Re: Taking a leave of absence from Freedom

Hi Joel,

I am not seeing any ads on this site so far. 

Yesterday I posted in a couple of journals, it was still very slow loading each page - again it may just be my old model Mac.  

Wishing you a speedy recovery,
Judy

Re: Happy to be here

As of today I have been nicotine free for 4 years, 2 months, 2 weeks, 2 days and 25+ minutes and remain a very happy ex-smoker. I feel like it's been much much longer since quitting. The knowledge I found here at Freedom and the pledge I made to NTAP has made it all possible. I celebrate my freedom ...

3 years FREE!

<t>I am a very happy ex-smoker. I quit smoking 3 years ago on June 23, 2013.
