Another day...smoke free:) I'm really enjoying not being a slave anymore. was very hard in the beginning, but in the whole scheme of a lifespan...what is one month of discomfort??? Yes...there are times I think about can I not? I smoked for 25 years. I know my brain needs time to re-learn. All in all...I'm proud of myself. I never, ever thought I could do this!

    Way to go, Karen!!  You've overcome many of the initial challenges in quitting and now you're reaping many rewards.  The freedom from the addiction is a wonderful benefit and gives you back the power and control in your life.  Thanks for sharing that it's normal to think about it from time to time, but that it's different from actually wanting to smoke... very important.  You're being kind to yourself by understanding that the brain is healing and relearning as well.  Congrats!!

    Karen, hope you had a wonderful holiday and welcome back.  You did it, and we are all proud of you also.  It took a lot of courage to go as far as you did with your quit and resist the urge to smoke when you were under stress. That says a lot about who you are and how strong willed you are as well.  We're so happy to have you in our quit now family and as you forge ahead, we hope to hear more about your journey.  Much love, Lucille.
