Hello amazing family:) I am back to feeling great and I truly mean great!!! I have been feeling healthy and strong. Miss all of you, and I hope you all enjoy my graphics,it makes me happy. I am still strong in my quit but I read here everyday to keep me grounded. I will never leave because this place fuels my spirit. And my best friends on earth are here . I wanted to also share something... I never really read all of my dad's death certificate because I knew why he died. But I was putting some of his things away, documents and I sat down and read it. In bold black letters it said cause of death respiratory failure due to tobacco use. Smoking!!!! Scary stuff and I spread the word like wildfire to people I know who smoke... it is so important!!! I carry my dad's driver's license in my wallet right by mine. Man I miss him:) It makes me realize I need to be close to God, or closer and live a better Christian life. I keep everyone in my prayers.... That we all stay strong in our quits:) love you all nikki. Oh and Noah has had 8 tests so far and got an 98 average!!!! So proud:)
Glad to hear from you nikki :-)

You are in my Prayers as well nikki. Some years ago my dad quit smoking and they detected cancer in one of his lungs, which he had to have removed later on. At 75 he is in pretty rough shape with COPD and other kinds of lung and heart issues due to the years of smoking. This addiction is insane because I chose to still smoke even after his sugery, and watching many other family members & friends suffer. Anyway, I truly feel for you. At least no one can take his memories outta your heart, so he is still with you always. I know it's not the same as being right there, but it sure helps. I am very scared of losing my own Dad and to respect his wishes, I quit smoking for him and myself. I am very proud of you and so glad you are here.

Nikki, So glad to see your blogs. I missed your grapics when your weren't here. I am sooo happy you are feeling better. My father died when I was 13, he was killed in a industrial accident. My dad was a heavy smoker( camels unfilter no less. I can still hear him coughing. It wasn't pretty. Makes me wonder why I ever picked up that nasty habit. Although, at the time I never associated his hacking with his smoking. You know Nikki, he has been gone for over 50 years, and I still miss him so much. He was a great father and I miss him like crazy. If you can't tell, I was definately a Daddy's girl. One thing though I can feel his presence from time to time. I know he would be pleased I finally found somethink that made me quit, and that was this site

Hi Sweet Nikki, Your graphics brighten my day. I love getting them, so please continue I am so glad that you are feeling better. Nikki, I lost my Dad in 1978 and I still miss him. I was always daddy's little girl. Your dad was so proud that you had quit smoking, so protect your quit at all cost. Give Noah a Hug and be proud of you both
