1st time ever--made it to 90 days!!!

Hi all! I haven't posted for a while because I physically haven't been feeling well for the past few months. Gall bladder, diverticulosis, hives and other stuff, but I'm here to say--I MADE IT TO 90 DAYS!!!! Never in my life have I ever made it this far and I don't know if I will ever relapse, but for right now it's been wonderful not having a ball and chain. It's the first time since late 1974 that I haven't had to run outside for a smoke. It's wonderful not having all of your things, including your pocketbook, smell like tobacco. I gave up soda at the same time and even lost 10 pounds. This is not me doing this. It may look like me going day to day without the butt, but ( and I'm not super religious) I firmly believe that God is doing this. Believe me, there are times that I want that cigarette so badly, it drives me nuts, but then I start thinking about something else and it passes. I don't know what I would do if I relapsed this time--I've relapse so many times after trying to quit starting 15 years ago, but just for today I will find something else to do. Just wanted to drop a line and wish everyone on the board a happy quit and to those who want to quit or have recently relapsed, don't despair. When you least expect it, it happens and it is truly a miracle. God bless all and take care--Hopeto--

Re: 1st time ever--made it to 90 days!!!

Congrats to everyone!! You guys are awesome!! Today is my 22 weeks quit!!! I had never made it past a week before taking "the drug"... It's funny - my husband, sister and friend all quit at the same time, and we have all stayed quit! It helps to have someone go thru it with you. We don't even think about smoking any more. It's great and I'm proud of myself. (Course I gained about 10 lbs but that's okay, I'll get it off)....

Good luck to you all and keep up the great work!!
