Hi folks- I have had a lot of smoke-free days lately. The other day I destroyed my packet. A Quit Line counselor calculated that over a six month timeframe sixty percent of my days were smoke-free. I am feeling a little stronger. I got twenty days up twice. I did it with NRT and willpower. I self talked my way through it. If I thought of smoking I would say no to smoking and reassure myself "you've done it before you can do it again.' I say 'I don't smoke' I live one day at a time I say 'No thanks, not today. It's working. I am two days smoke-free.
