Hillbilly, I know you are still hangin' around these boards, and I just had to say...dude...you rock. I love the positive posts like these you put out there...I found a few tonight (I love searching out the positives) and this one just made me feel calm and secure and I got that little relaxed lop sided smile-a-goin'.

Thanks for this 2 year old + post!

Gotta love you, man.

Hi Sue, and thanks. That's a good-looking quit you've got going there. And isn't it a great feeling when you catch yourself with that "lopsided smile" for no (apparent) reason?

Hang onto that quit, it just keeps getting better.

I love this thread! It's a great reminder. And yes, Hillbilly, I think you're right that starting again is simply TOO much trouble. I'm only a newbie, brand-new greenie and am very aware of the need not to get complacent--but when I encounter triggers now it's not so hard. Not as hard as it would be to tell students, friends, and family I started again. Not as hard as it would be to quit again--if, indeed, I ever quit. Not as hard as it would be to go through the sickness, disease, cost, and isolation of being a smoker.

Thanks for the reminder, dude.

It's not worth it.

Wow. This is the first time I've seen this post but it sure sounds like my way of thinking. I'm so busy running all over the place, I can't figure out how I ever had time to smoke. The odd time I think about it, it's more like...nah....I'd have to get outta bed, get dressed, drive in the cold to the gas station, find a lighter (which I haven't had one in months now) smoke it, probably won't be great anyway, drive home, get undressed, go back to bed, spend rest of night feeling miserable and gross.Way to much trouble to bother.

I'm so glad I ran across this thread tonight! That's the attitude I'm trying to develop. For crying out loud, I'm halfway to green! No sense in screwing that up now!

"I could stop at that gas station and get smokes, but then I would be coughing, choking, stinking, AND have to explain it to *everyone* I know....Nah, sounds like too much trouble to me." Lol, sounds like a winning attitude to me. :)
