Did nicotine's two-hour half-life inside our body ever allow us to really relax and really rest? Imagine the extremely joyous times in life never again being interrupted to tend to the needs of our addiction. The constant sense of calmness and comfort awaiting you is "you" and you'll never have to smoke to stay there!
| Thanks for poppin this one up Parker! As it turns out, I am almost *twice* the quitter I was when I first responded to this thread (nearly 18 months free), and the best thing I can tell you all is that this comfort keeps getting better and better! I am beginning to truly feel in charge of ALL my actions (and Reactions for that matter), now that I am in control of my addiction to nicotine. Absolutely incredible. Thanks Marty for writin' this one in the first place...it's nice to look back and see how far we've come. |

As Marty notes, freedom is an extremely bright spot in my life and a source of emotional nourishment during dusty days. It may at times be hard to see early on, but this is likely the most loving gift that you've ever given you. It's a gift worthy of holding close and protecting above all else. Millions upon millions of words here in Freedom's more than 263,000 archived member posts but just one guiding principle determining the outcome for all ... no nicotine today, Never Take Another Puff!
