103 days smoke free!!! So happy!
Today is day 5 for me. I am feeling pretty good. It has been hard but I have kept pushing through. I have quit quite a number of times before. I really want this to be it though.

I am worried that being together will ...
Just logged in for my occasional visit and didn't believe that after smoking for 40 years, I have been smoke free for this long.

Regardless of how many skirmishes will be fought in any given war, the most important skirmish is always The Next One! This is especially true in kicking an addiction. We need to learn to view each withdrawal incident as a skirmish in a war. Why? Because when we attempt to kick an addiction, we are engaged in a war. A war of mind over matter with several prizes up for grabs. If we are the victor,...
