One Year Smoke-free

Hello Everyone,
On yesterday 6-16-07 I celebrated one year of non-smoking. I'm very proud of myself because after 26 years of smoking this was truly a hard habit to break. However, with God and encouragement from the boards, I made it. I still have cravings but after going through that awful withdrawal process, I'll never smoke again. So to anyone out there trying to quit, you can do it. Keep focused and remain determined. I'm sooooooooooooooooooo Happy to be free!!!!

Patcher

Re: One Year Smoke-free


Yayyyyyy, Patcher...Woohooo...YOU DID IT, GIRL!!! Congratulations...and thank God, huh? He also gave me the strength I needed to quit, and without him, and without me calling on him, I don't really think it would've happened! Seriously.... also patches were a help too, as well as coming to this board everyday..[for a long time too]....and support from friends and family also.

So proud of you, Patcher...you go girl!
Keep this quit going forevr and ever...I know you can!

Love,
Deda
