Nine Months

Hello Everyone,

On tomorrow Friday, I will celebrate NINE MONTHS of being smoke-free. I thank God for giving me the strength and power for being able to accomplish this. I would have never in a million years imagined that I would have had the will power or stamina to quit. This has shown me that I can do all things through christ who strengthens me. It has not been easy, in fact, this is by far the most difficult thing I have ever done. But, It is done..........I AM A NON-SMOKER. I now plan to use this strength and lose some of this smoke-free weight gain.
Thanks everyone for all your encouragement and support!

I have been quit for 8 Months, 4 Weeks, 13 hours, 51 minutes and 59 seconds (271 days). I have saved $760.41 by not smoking 5,431 cigarettes. I have saved 2 Weeks, 4 Days, 20 hours and 35 minutes of my life. My Quit Date: 6/16/2006 6:00 PM

Re: Nine Months

Congrats Patch on being nine months nico-free!! I can't wait until I get there. I agree, once you have accomplished this, it feels like you can do anything!! It does take a lot of willpower and self-control and digging deep inside to find yourself to make it happen, but it did happen and we are all here to talk about it.

Good job and way to go!!!
