Hello everyone

I hope that everyone will have a wonderful day today, I never lost power yet and probably won't now all weather warnings are dropped now but schools in my region are canceled today due to road conditions. We lucked out here with this blizzard it was definitely bad enough but nothing too bad yay. Anyway 199 days ago today I quit smoking which I think is definitely a double YAY. I am so thankful that I found this site and all of you because you helped me get through some pretty rough days and I can't tell you how much I appreciate all of you. To the folks that are new stay close, committed, determined and strong in your quit because I believe that we are so much stronger than any cravings we may have. Believe me I know how powerful the craves can be in the first 2 or 3 wks it may have even been the first month, my moods were all over the place and I felt like I was crawling out of my skin and living in a fog. At times if you happened to look at me the wrong way I had to be careful that I didn't rip your face off, but I got through those horrible withdrawals and now I am in a good place in my quit. Actually I have been in a good place from around the 3 month mark. For me my mindset from the beginning was this is my forever quit N.O.P.E and I meant it so I just dealt with my up and down moods and kept busy with whatever I was doing and thought of all the positives of living as an EX SMOKER . LIFE is good  I smoked just shy of 40 yrs and now I have my life back and I definetly am a Happy quitter. Enjoy the day everyone.
