Congratulations TEXAS GIRL!!! Never heard of anyone dying from orange tic tacs so glad those are helping to get you thru the cravings---from what my 3 pack a day Camels no filters cigarette father in law who quit cold turkey after the doctor told him that he could keep smoking and not live to see grandkids come into the world or quit and dance at their weddings (which he did) you will be other smokers' worst nightmare!!!!!!!!! Hang in there, Girl!!!

Thanks Expat!!
That is one of the thoughts that I had. What if, I have grandkids and don't get to see them grow up.

sobering thought isn't it?? And my f-i-l was in a terrible condition when the doctor told him this and he went on to live a full rich life---believe me you've got to be around to watch your kids deal with teens--I have a 5 year old granddaughter and plan on hanging around for her teens (heeheehee) and when Grandma dances at her wedding

You deserve to be proud of yourself. Congratulations!!!!!

You'll know the battle has finally been won when you see someone else light up and you all of a sudden realize that you feel sorry for them.

Oh, wow, I just wished that my fil would feel sorry for them---he would confront them in public---he was horrible to be around when they would light up in front of him or he smelled the smoke wafting over our table and his food---hahaha!--you're lucky now, Girl, smoking has been banned just about everywhere........keep up the program!!!
