imageI just don't do that anymore.  I quit smoking from one to one and one-half packs of cigarettes a day on June 10, 2010.  I had already smoked 40 years past, trying to quit numerous times with the aid of a pregnancy, gum, pills, patches, hypnotism and cold turkey.  My method of choice with this quit was cold turkey, with a strong determination to just not do that anymore.  Also, this is the first time that I have ever had access to a site such as this, my ex-family.  The support from the family members on this site has helped me to remain smokefree.  It is a place to go to if you need to vent, laugh, cry or anything else, within reason, of course; but you learn to take what you need and leave the rest.  Someone out there will grab your hand and walk with you, if you let them.  If you remain true to your quit, it's an awesome, smokefree journey. 

Special thanks to my daughter.  She got the ball rolling with this final quit I am living now, and I thank her for that.  She is the one who got me to log onto this site for the very first time.  She wanted to quit smoking, and in an effort to support her, I quit.  It was the only way I knew of to truly support her quit - quit too.  That was my driving force, to finally be able to say, "I just don't do that anymore."  

Although, my life has changed, major changes, since I quit, I remain part of the six percent.  Find a reason to quit, then defend it with your life, because in the end, it's your life we're talking about.  May your quit-smoking journey be filled with a love and peace inside your heart, no matter how your life's road twists and turns.

The dragonfly is an agent of change! 

 

Make that change in your life.  You will truly make the best decision you could ever make when you can sit back and say, "I am a non-smoker.  I just don't do that anymore."

COMES THE DAWN

After awhile, you learn the subtle difference

between holding a hand and chaining a soul

and you learn that love doesn't mean possession

and company doesn't mean security.

And you begin to learn that kisses aren't contracts

And presents aren't promises

and you begin to accept your defeats with your head up

and your eyes ahead

with the grace of an adult, not the grief of a child.

And you learn to build your roads today,

because tomorrow's ground is too uncertain for plans

and futures have ways of falling down in mid-flight.

After awhile you learn that even sunshine

burns if you get too much,

so you plant your own garden and decorate your own soul

instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers.

And you learn that you really can endure

that you really are strong

and you really do have worth

and you learn and you learn...

with every goodbye you learn.

~~Virginia Showstall  (Denise)

Life cannot be taken lightly or too seriously;

 

       Live for today, not for tomorrow;

 

If tomorrow never comes,

 

       You won’t have the chance to say

 

I love you, thank you or goodbye!
