Hello. I'm back again. I like smoking. Every time I get near a set quit day, I quit for an hour. I don't want to quit, but I HAVE TO QUIT QUIT
Hopefully some real opportunities will unfold that will help me find a solution to a problem

Getting ready

August 4, 2015

My last week as a smoker.Tired of poisoning myself. This time, my partner is on board. Quitting on our anniversary. I have not quit cold turkey before but realize this is the best way for me to do it. Want no nicotine in my system at all.

Will be writing often. I know how hard this will be, but i'm ready for it.
