    Ain't that the truth !!
    Great to see you are embracing the new FREEDOM :)
    We are much alike. I was 67, and had smoked most of my life, 45+ years, and only really tried to quit once. Other than a few miserable weeks of withdrawal, I have never craved, wanted, or missed them. Once you make up your mind, that you do not WANT to smoke, it's over, and done.

    So happy you are doing well and still feeling as tough as...nails. Strength and determination or willpower are great things, but knowledge and acceptance are just as powerful if not more so in this journey. Believing you can do this and embracing the changes sets you free.
    Congratulations on a journey well done!

    Agree with Red-67. To quote, "Once you make up your mind, that you do not WANT to smoke, it's over, and done." It is mind over matter. If it matters, you won't mind.
