Maybe it's when I'm at the bar with my friends that I become my stupidest. I haven't tried it out yet and I'm not sure I'm quite ready to take that step either. As a matter of fact, I actually declined to go out with the crew last Friday night and I didn't know at the time why I was declining ...

Major awareness gain for you. You are now a non-smoker, why change that. I didn't go get gas myself for a year, damn gas stations are a trap. Soon you won't be able to stand being around it.

We're all winners here. One day at a time.
Urges right now are few and far between.

Still haven't gone out with me mates though.
I'm almost dreading it now.
I now know that's going to be my biggest challenge.

Fortunately, they can't stand to be around me so they have been a little too understanding.

When I was quitting, I wondered what I would do when I was on the phone, after dinner, playing pool, all that stuff. I couldn't imagine what I would do with my hands, etc.

Guess what? Once I got far enough away from the nicotine monkey, I realized that I could do those things and it wouldn't occur to me that I needed to do anything with my hands. This was a revelation to me. Once you have distanced yourself from the beast, I believe you will not miss it.

Congrats for fighting the good fight.

Pat

More Congrats!

Mike and Milo and others..

More congratulations and continued encouragement to get through February...

Almost time to get out a piece of paper and tote up cash savings..

1. Cigarettes at $45 per carton
2. Lighters/Fluid at $3 each
3. Extra cleaning bills to get aroma out
4. Holes in shirts/clothing articles

Health insurance and other expenses will start dropping as well over time.. Keep it going!

At a pack a day savings in less than one year I can have disc brakes on my tandem axle trailer. If I do it myself.

I guess I'll have to not smoke for 18 monthes so I can have it done right.

Either way its like they are free.

When you get to a year, smoke free (and I know you will) give me a call and I'll help you wrench on those brakes. Keep on keepin' on. Ron

I'll come help as well if needed, although what is free, (along with the free help ) is your breathing. The ability of your lungs to more efficiently exchange Co2 for O2. What you are doing is truly life changing! Keep at it, we're pulling for you.
