I am 34 years old and have smoked for about 17 years. One day, I just woke up and said, "I am done with this." I have a 4 year old son, that I refuse to let down. My quit date: Oct 10, 2011.

So, I posted a blog on Friday and wanted to thank all of you for the kind and encouraging words. Some of you wanted an update, here ya go friends.....

The meeting with my ex went well, as far as smoking goes. I DID NOT SMOKE. The news he had for me was not so great. He is in a tough/crappy situation and needed my help. So, I couldn't say no the man I still love and have been friends with for over 18 years. Hopefully my quit will motivate and encourage him to quit as well. Who knows, maybe we'll get our shit together after all. Either way, not gonna smoke. I don't do that anymore.

Anyways, 36 days smoke free and feeling FANTABULOUS!!!!! My COWBOYS even played a great game!

Happy smoke free Monday, everyone!

Thank you! Umm, details, ok...... short version.He just got a new job by my place and needs a couch to crash on until he makes enough to get his own place.

@TheNewMe: the split was a mutual split, so we really have no major issues.  Yup, I met him when I was 15 years old, I am now 33..

Congratulations on staying smoke-free!  It is great that you can help someone even your ex.  My ex and I get along but Idk if we would if he had left me.  I'm not as generous as he is, but I am getting better. lol.  I think being so old I have learned a lot even though I have to learn things the hard way. :)
