Congratulations! I have friends who have tried and tried, and slip back into it. I know it takes a lot of strength to stop - keep up the good work!

A little kindness goes a long way.

Congrats, Stacey!!! I quit on Jan 15, 2004, five years ago. Smoked two packs a day for forty-five years. Back then it was the thing to do, everybody did it. Didn't realize how much it stunk and what damage i could do to you, even though we call them "coffin nails". In the Army you had to have a pack displayed in your footlocker. According to the doctors, I'm now living on borrowed time, and have been for about four years. It's true what they say about having to "pay for your fun". If you can get someone to quit when they're young, or better yet never start, then they won't be joining me as one of the walking dead.

Yeap, one year, lol. I can't believe that I can actually say that either. Cj, I know why you quit and when it's because of someone else, it's makes it so much harder. Just think what it would be like if you were still smoking though. I don't think you would be here and I'm truly happy that you are!!

Dave, I wish you well and hope that you keep "borrowing " all the time you want!!
