    Maybe you need to quit the "cousins husband"... just don't tell him or anyone in hearing distance of him. then he wont be able to comment....

    Hi Wilson you have every reason to feel very proud. I got to o 113 days last time and you have surpassed that. That's why we all come to this site because we understand how hard the journey is. Congratulations and well done to you.

    Hi Willson. When you want to share anything, especially days, just come back to this community. Don't look for support from non smokers. They are dismissive and are often clueless. Will only make you feel bad about your addiction and trivialise your effort to beat it.

    Hi Willson, I have a friend whos asking me when I'm going to quit counting. I hate that. I may never quit counting. I no longer count hours - I did that for the first 10 days, but now I do make notice of every morning around 11:20 or so when the next day of not smoking rolls around. I love watching my quit counter roll from one day to the next. So, yes, I hate being asked this too. Count away!

    I agree fully - you are doing great and what you have accomplished is no small thing Willson - I am at day 1465 and am still counting. A friend asked me how long I planned to keep counting. I told him I planned to keep counting until my ass fell off! That shut down pretty effectively. Don't let anyone detract from what you have accomplished or distract you from your goal.
