Thumbs up My Apologies! :-(

Haven't forgotten about all the success stories on the Board. Been hectic with a new job and new Granddaughter and I haven't been as my usual self.
Congratulations to all the QUITTERS out there and keep up the good work. I'll try to do better in the future.

Congratulations on the new Granddaughter, Dave!!
A perfect excuse for a stray from behaviors, as if quitting smoking weren't enough!! (Day 56 here!)

I must admit that sometimes getting through other 'toughies' in the day, and not having high blood sugar, I don't make it in here. Would rather not post than rain on the good parade happening here.
Glad to hear you are doing well, and you have a new tiny reason to want to see more days in your life!

Best Regards,
DeadFish

Congratulations on your new job, new granddaughter, and new life without nicotine GreyHound!!!

Definitely not your "usual self", but your NEW self sure does seem to be doing pretty darn good so far.

Day 56 for me too DeadFish. Glad it has been such a successful journey. Congratulations to you too!!!

Congrats on the new granddaughter Dave!! But isn't she a Sweetheart because you can hand her back whe she's fussing, needs changing and is crying?

Dave,
You have been missed!! But good to see you've got your priorities in order. Congratulations on your new granddaughter!! I've got 3 granddaughters so I can tell you from experience....they can tug at your heart!! When my first one came along, I was totally amazed at how much I could love her. I loved my kids with all my heart, but there is something very special about grandkids!!
Congtratulations on your new job too! That has got to be a little stressful. New jobs always are.
Stop by whenever you get the chance!!

Memaw

Seven months, one week, five days, 1 hour, 33 minutes and 23 seconds. 4481 cigarettes not smoked, saving $705.80. Life saved: 2 weeks, 1 day, 13 hours, 25 minutes.

Don't you have to get paid back as a parent before you can enjoy grandchildren?

Hi Dave
Do please tell us how you view cigarettes, smokers and being a non smoker through the eyes of a grandad

Well, I am alive & well to see & hold my Granddaughter, I can push her around without being out of breath and I hope she doesn't do foolish things like I did! I still have friends who are smokers and I am not a "soapbox" kind of guy. You have to make your mind up to quit...all the patches, gum, drugs, etc won't help if it doesn't start in your head! A very expensive, ugly habit that keeps the tobacco companies making money. And I live in a Tobacco State with the 2nd lowest tax on cigarettes!

Keep up the good work on this Board...it isn't easy but well worth it!! Trust me on that!
