Stories & experiences


EVERYONE is behind us!

Posted in Quit experiences 27 Aug 2021

Hello QuitFam, I Just have to pass along a story that might make you smile.

The other day I had a routine medical procedure. I could not eat the entire day before. (I had cravings for food that day, NOT cigarettes). Back to my story...

I was in the surgery room and they were getting ready to "put me under" and asked when I had my last cigarette. I said that I recently quit. Everyone clapped and cheered for me!! They were pretty loud too! It was like having a bunch of cheerleaders behind me!!!

So, my non-smoking and soon to-be non-smoking friends, people on this forum, our friends and families are behind us quitting but so are complete strangers. Everyone is behind us!!! I have to say, I was so touched and smiling ear to ear!!
