<t>Judy, congratulations on almost being in bronze.  It's a great step to take, and another milestone.  I always notice when I'm driving and other people are smoking in their car.  It only makes me a little bit jealous when I'm sitting in traffic, but when 264 is a parking lot there are no pleasantr...

Congratulations!

I don't do poetry well, but I read over your poem and it's interesting; if you wrote that, that's pretty good.

I hope you're doing well!

<t>Hey everyone!  I'm still doing great and staying nicotine free.  School is starting to get pretty busy and I hardly ever think about smoking anymore.  Needless to say, I'll be sure to drop in from time to time and see how everyone's doing and keep everyone updated if they're interested.<br/> <br/...

<t>I used to smoke in the attic at my house even though I don't allow smoking in the house, just because I didn't want to go outside and smoke.  I used to enjoy smoking alone, so I totally understand your situation as a quit closet smoker.<br/> <br/> Also, keep track of all that money you're saving....

Congratulations on your decision to quit, and your first 4 days nicotine free.  I had difficulty sleeping too on some nights at first; I hope it gets better for you, as it did me.

Good luck this weekend Aven!

Day 31

<t>Thanks for the good luck M, I'll need it this semester.  You too, good luck on your internet classes.  It's nice to know how easy it is to not smoke around smokers.  It's also nice to be able to study up on the third or fourth floor in the library and not have to go all the way down and out to sm...
