    I agree wid ya Nuts. I / We have missed you. It really does get better. A few ex-smokers like to tell us that it is easy. It is not so in the beginning for most of us,.and those are a few lucky ones!
    Personally, I'm going 100% without a puff & almost $12,000 in front, Yippee!
    ps. I try to keep an eye on the site. I think it keeps me grounded...

    Hi Nuts! I had no doubt that you would be a winner from day 1. Attutude means everything, and you had your plan and your goal deeply seeded. Positive thinking is always better than doubt and by joining us here even periodically reminds one of their fantastic journey and to be thankful for the much better life we lead now. Money to enjoy some frivolous things, get out of debt or spend on loved ones.....A great sense of achievement and confidence that we can do what we put our minds to. No price tag on that or on health.

    Congratulations Nuts, happy to hear from you and it's always great when the winners stop by to encourage others . We can quit smoking. We are proof!

    congrats! im 94 days smoke free now :) i currently am taking champix though as i couldn't do cold turkey but 1 tablet every afternoon, And i can tell you it was very hard the first month or so but as it's went on another 2 months it's not as bad, and i dont regret it at all im glad i decided to its too costly and its bad for your health after 9 years smoking, and finally on the right track i feel proud for me continuing this on and using my willpower to stop as well, yes champix stops the cravings but its mostly my mindset that is willing to stop and i will continue to keep going im almost finished champix but i will still continue on!
