I am going to have to echo Linda on this one: There is only ONE way, not "many different ways". NOPE is NOPE is NOPE, and we do encourage people to succeed at that. But, if you're...

78 Days!

Trying to make some time to come to my favorite place to say Hi!  78 days today, I am amazed!  Time just slips away when you're busy with life and work.  I was walking into work the other day and carrying a bunch of stuff and I though - "If I was smoking I wouldn't be able to carry all this stuff because I would be holding a cigarette and needing to puff away."   Another evening last week I was in my living room and watching TV with my husbund and he was smoking and I couldn't bear for him to blow his smoke my way.  a couple of weeks ago I was walking out of a building on campus and there was a girl smoking and it hit me out of the blue - I had the worse craving for a smoke and my daughter that smokes was with me but I didn't ask her for one.  I just thought to myself - "I am a non-smoker".  I was having some very stressful moments 2 weeks ago Sunday and I really wanted a cigarette and I always go back to smoking when I am stressed but this time I decided that I am a non-smoker now.  One puff leads to the next and the next and the next then I am a smoker but I didn't smoke that evening.  I have remained a non-smoker and I am happy that I can tell the entire EX community about it.

Good for you.  Either you are a smoker or you are NOT a smoker.  There really is no "in-between".  Good for you for staying strong, especially around all of those smokers.  It goes to show how much you really want to be FREE.  The further we get from our last "sickorette", the freer we become.
