Hi Joel!

I always make it a point to read your material. It is so inspiring and educative. Why I like this when compared to everything else is that it feeds my intellect. It gives me a very good feeling as I read your material.... that I am an intellectual and I listen when something is explained in clear terms. So, it is the basically a feeling of high self esteem!!

Thanks for educating me and motivating me to become smoke free. I am smoke free for 22 days now.

Dear Joel,
It is almos magical that many of your messages and often John's too appear exactly on the day that I most need that very lesson.. Is that coincidence?. I am enormously grateful for the articles, the timing and the writers.. This one of yours and one of John's today were the answer to my very troubled night. Thanks, Lilac

This is the exact thing I am experiencing right now! I will have days when I feel great like quitting is a breeze, then I start romanticizing a cigarette in my mind. I find the only thing that can get me back on track is to remember everything horrible I can about smoking. I read your stuff every chance I get. It has really helped me.



Thanks

I came back to this message because there was a phrase in it that I want to remember--sort of use as an amulet. I quote,"not smoking will never be as good as that fantasy, but smoking will not be like that fantasy either." during this especially trying period I shall repeat that to myself many times. so that I am unable to dodge the truth of it. thanks, Lilac

Hi, Lilac, it's me again. You're still hurting, aren't you? I'm gonna be away from the computer for awhile, maybe even until tomorrow, but I'll be thinking of you. You CAN do this, I know what you're going thru, been there, done that. You're doing so well, keep it up.

I tried to email you direct, but no address. Click on my name at the top of this post, it'll give you my address, write to me direct if you like.

Hang in there, darlin', one day at a time.

Dave

Dear Hillbilly,
You are probably the neatest person in the world. It will be calming for me to know you are thinking good thoughts for me. I did 19 days by myself and then discovered Freedom which sheltered me until yesterday and then WHAMO!!!!! last night was awful. Today is so-so. I am not going to smoke but I would sure like to be a little happy about it. Your posts are great life preservers for me. Gratefully, Lilac

I keep telling myself of the future. Remember smoking times. Remember quits. Remember humilations.

Thank you!

The whole thread is definitely food for thought and will be a support for the next three days.
