Finally checking in

Posted in Staying quit 10 Jan 2020

I haven't had the opportunity to be on since before Christmas. I hope everyone here had a wonderful holiday season.

I am still not smoking, thanks in large part to all of you here.

It's now been since December 10, 2018 that I had my last cigarette. Right before my one year anniversary, I got a new tattoo to celebrate. Olive Oyl on my right forearm. My husband has Popeye on his left forearm. We are quite the matching pair now.

I only hope that all of you are having the same good luck.

I can't begin to tell you how much better I feel.

Thank you all so much for all of your help and support.

    Our guidance is always rewarded when we hear back from community members with happy endings to their journeys. I am so proud of you for not breaking when everything seemed to be going wrong for you last year. Despite, it all you persevered where many would have used it an an excuse to pick up smoking again. Only by knowing the mindset did you realize that the cigarette gave you nothing. Nothing would be gained by smoking, and where would be today had you continued? I was relieved to hear things were going well for you the last time you posted, and I wish you every happiness. You deserve it!

    Oh My gosh.

    Happiness-your beautiful words made me cry. I think it's because I remembered everything that my husband and I have been through the last year and how far we have come. His job at TMobile is going great. They really treat their employees well.
    Nuts-you have also been one of my biggest cheerleaders. Thank you for your support, my friend. I truly hope you are feeling well.
    And to Pisces 24-thank you ! I really do appreciate it. 🌹💐
