Your blog is whatever you want it to be. You can use it to ask questions, post links, share pictures or just talk about your day and how your quit is going. You can also support other members by commenting on their blog posts.

Lighters Are for Fireworks and Not Cigarettes

July 4, 2016


Glad you’re here on a holiday! Thanks for checking in, though I’m hoping you’ll only stay a short while and get back to celebrating with friends and family. 

I love the 4th of July. It’s one of my favorite holidays despite the heat and likelihood for mosquitos. I’m certainly looking forward to the fireworks. They never get old. It’s quite amazing how every year there is something new that I’ve not seen... Read full post

Milestones and Health Benefits

When I got to the window to pay the gal told me that the lady ahead of me had paid my $1.56 bill!        

Well, I thought "I can't let this stop" so I asked how much the car behind me owed.


At first I thought that isn't really fair for me to pay more than what the woman paid for me and then... Read full post

You’ve come here to improve your health. It’s constant work on your part to make sure you are successful at quitting smoking. With the choice you’ve made to quit you’re hopefully simultaneously making other healthy choices in lieu of smoking.
