I feel the truth - that I can and am doing this. Gratitude overwhelming me. Led from homelessness and addiction to homeowner, tax paying, God centered recovering addict... that last thing I held onto come hell or high water praying everyday for God's help to quit smoking these horrible cigarettes and low and behold he gave me this site, friends, his love and the strength to do this today. I loving gratitude.

Mike, 10 days ago I saw you had posted something on the forums and I knew you wouldn't get any support there. I thought, I'm going to message this young man to check out the blogs tab where I know he will get support, like I got when I checked out the blogs about 3 months ago! 

You have no idea how great it feels to read your blog tonight on my 90th day of being free from smoking. You're doing great and I'm so proud of you! And, I too am grateful for the people here on this site and that God led me here too.

Happy for you! Keep this wonderful attitude!

You CAN do this Mike and, in fact, you ARE doing this!  Doesn't it feel amazing????  I remember feeling so good when I woke up in the morning and didn't cough up a lung any longer and I could tast how good my coffee was....

Everyone feels something different and that's good...but something we all DON'T feel is that we have lost anything....all we see is everything we've gained and that's the way it should be!

Be proud Mike and remember, you can NEVER think that you can have a puff and get away with it....NOPE (Not One Puff Ever).

Coffee is good and my lung still in place. Still the breathing is bothered but hoping it gets better. Thanks everyone.
