40 days as a non smoker, plenty of ups and downs on the way, but I seem to be doing it anyway. Happy Easter to you all
I am thrilled that I have actually managed to quit. I like reading posts still here and there and reading stories about others early on struggles helps me to stay on track and focused at all times.
