2015

I hope that everyone had a good nights sleep and are ready to say goodbye to March. it's been a very long winter but for some reason March has flown by quickly and I am happy about that .  Everything is covered in snow this mornin,  it's pretty but I still want it gone .261 DOF and counting, 

Marilyn 

We had a beautiful wk end here in the Maritime provinces, sunny and warm at 45 ° F during the day but it felt like 70 degrees in the sun. We're getting a mixed bag of weather later on today, let it come because I know that it won't stay. I hope everyone enjoyed the wk end no matter what the weather was, today is 260 DOF and counting, I can't believe tommorrow is the last day of March especially when I look out my window and see the gigantic snow banks but they're melting a little each day. Have a wonderful smoke free Monday. 

Marilyn ☺ 

Cold nights and mild sunny days warms my heart and makes me happy plus 259 smoke free days and counting also makes me very happy. Life can be difficult and some days we may feel like it's just not worth it but believe me quitting smoking is definitely worth all of the stresses that we go through in the first few weeks of our quits. I know after everything I've been through I sure as h#ll don't ever want to screw up knowing that I eventually will want to quit smoking again and have to start all over again with quitting. I just won't slip up and then I won't have to worry about starting back at day 1 again. I'm heading for my next milestone which is 9 months and it's coming up on the 14th of April and that definitely makes me very happy. Stay strong everyone because living a smoke free life is absolutely worth it. 

Marilyn

The sun is shining again this morning, it was a cold night but it's supposed to be a beautiful day yay . I hope that everyone will enjoy this wonderful day that we are blessed with whether it's raining, snowing or freezing temps or gusty north west winds, we are blessed to be alive keep your quits because it's a wonderful thing to be able to breathe instead of continuing to smoke knowing that we are shortening our lives and most likely will die a slow horrible death that's from a smoking related illness . stay strong in your quits be willing to go through some rough patches you can do it, each and everyone of us are stronger than any craving or urge. We need to believe it because quitting smoking is definitely going to be the hardest thing that you will ever do but it's definitely worth it .

Marilyn 

I love these mild temps and the snow has dropped alot and that sure makes me happy. I want the snow gone but not too fast because I don't want any major flooding to take place. Anyway today is 257 precious smoke free days and counting being an EX SMOKER is the best decision I've ever made in my life, stay strong in your quits everyone because living a smoke free life is absolutely worth it but you must go through the withdrawals and rough days first but each one of us can do it because we must believe in ourselves that we are stronger than any craving or urge, we don't smoke anymore. We need to stay busy and know that we can and will succeed in our quits no matter what is happening in our lives. Have a wonderful Friday. 

Marilyn 

I hope that everyone had a good nights sleep and is ready for a wonderful smoke free Thursday. I'm going to do up a batch of bread shortly and if I still have some ambition maybe I will make a batch of cookies. It's 36°F this morning which is pretty mild for us here in the Maritime provinces. It's supposed to rain which will help melt the mountain of snow. I am so thankful for the warmer weather / Spring has sprung, yay and yay again. 256 precious smoke free days and counting. I am heading for the 9 month milestone in 2 and a half wks. Stay strong in your quits everyone because life is grand without a cigarette in hand .

Marilyn ☺ 

One wk from today is April 1st, wow it's been a very long winter but I do believe that Spring has sprung here in the Maritime provinces. I will be happy to see this mountain of snow start to melt away and I will try not to complain about the mud being tracked in by my dog Samantha Digger Jane Hartley. She never learned how to wipe her feet off on the mat before coming in, tee, hee, hee. Have a wonderful smoke free day everyone, stay strong in your quits because life is so much better being a non smoker but you have to go through the withdrawals and rough days to get to a good place in your quit, it takes time to get there but you will realize quitting smoking was the best decision for you and your family ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ 

Marilyn 

Morning fellow EXERS, I really feel horrible when I'm reading the blogs over my morning coffee and see that someone has slipped up and smoking again. We must stay strong and stay vigilant no matter what is happening in our lives, no matter if we have 8 months or 8 years into our quits we must always remain on guard. No one can get us to smoke, no one is holding us down and forcing us to inhale the disgusting poison cigarette.Each day I am so thankful that I can come here and be a part of this wonderful community of my fellow EXERS. If someone does slip it would be very smart to jump right back on the band Wagon right away if that's what you want but you must want to quit 100 % and be willing to go through the withdrawals all over again but Damn it it's so worth it, at least for me it's sooooooo worth it. 254 DOF TODAY AND COUNTING. 

Marilyn 

I hope that everyone had a relaxing weekend, we enjoyed having the birthday party here yesterday. Lots of food and lots of fun, my husband and I were very tired last night but a great tired , 254 DOF today and counting. No more telling my company especially the grandchildren, that I'm going outside I will be right back and come back in smelling like a ashtray. My daughter, her man and my sons girlfriend all stood outside yesterday in the strong NW winds yesterday smoking away, good for them but I don't smoke anymore so I don't have to freeze my butt off anymore. I pray someday soon they'll decide to quit but unfortunately I can't make them. My son quit last January and I am so thankful that he did. Have a wonderful day everyone. 

Marilyn 

The wind is howling on this 22nd day of March but April is just around the corner and I will be complaining about the rain and the mud, I guess there's no happy medium for me ha, ha . Seriously though as far as the storm we were supposed to get over night we didn't even get 2 inches yay I am very thankful for that. I need to get going soon the oldest grandson is coming this morning for the day and then the whole family is coming later on for another birthday party for my son he's 32 today and my youngest grandson Mason is the big 6 yrs old this coming Wed on the 25th but we are celebrating both today with pizza, garlic fingers and all the fixings. M husband iis going to do the pizzas for me, he's such a great help and I really appreciate it. We'll both be exhausted bythe end of the day but it will be so worth it because of the memories especially for the grandsons and our 12 yr old step grandaughter, Have a wonderful Sunday everyone .

Marilyn 

I believe in being upbeat and positive no matter what and I applied that attitude on my quit and it's working 252 DOF tommorrow. I decided to change my avatar from the crappy white stuff known as snow to a beautiful summer pic of the Hopewell Rock which is right here in New Brunswick. It's been a long time since I've been there, it's a beautiful tourist spot.  Anyway I'm using my positive attitude with the weather it's storming again right now and it's supposed to continue overnight and into the morning but oh well, next week is going to be absolutely beautiful with warm temps and lots of sunshine and Spring has sprung even if Mother Nature never got the memo . Have a peaceful, relaxing evening everyone. 

Marilyn 

Good morning fellow EXERS, I'm looking out my window and if I didn't know any better I'd think it was still Jan or just the beginning of Feb but the temps are getting milder and after to nights mixed bag of precip and tommorrows bitter temps and gusty winds it's going to start warming up and maybe just maybe this mountain of white crap will start to melt. I was thinking what will I blog about once this weather decides to be somewhat normal tee hee hee. I'm having another birthday party here tommorrow for the younger grandson Mason, he's quite excited about turning 6 yrs old and for my son he'll be 32 .My daughter is the mom of Mason she's going to be 37 in June boy do I feel old, my older grandson Adam who just turned 11 on the 11th is my sons and he isn't with the Mother but I keep the peace so I can have him for a day twice a month and she is allowing me to get him tommorrow instead of today. It's good to stay on the good side of people most of the time. 251 DOF and counting WTG for me yay, my Husband will have 11 months in on Masons B day. I am so happy that we both have quit smoking, my hubby has 2 and a half months more than I do but for us it was the right way to quit smoking and we didn't kill each other, tee hee hee, funny, have a super fantastic day everyone. 

Marilyn 

Good morning, I hope that everyone will have a wonderful day today. It's another cold morning for this first day of spring,I guess at 7:45 pm it's officially Spring anyway I will be glad when the temps decide to get above +1°F or -17°celius brrrrrrr. it's supposed to get up to 34 °F today though and no wind. I am getting out and enjoy the day because we have another storm coming in tomorrow afternoon and it's going to be a mixed bag of weather. Oh well I predict that it's going to be the last snowstorm for this season, how's that for being optomistic ???-- Anyway life is good especially compared to the alternative. Today is my 250 th day of freedom from the dreaded nicotine poison and I want to thank everyone on this wonderful site for helping me through the first few weeks of my quit. I really don't know if I could have made it through without all of you. THANK YOU . stay strong everyone because  ( life is grand without a cigarette in hand )

Marilyn 

A very good morning, I hope that everyone will have a wonderful day. I'm looking out my window and it's hard to believe that tomorrow is the first day of spring . As much as I want the snow to disappear I don't want any major flooding along the river banks we'll have to wait and see what happens. I'm going to get out for a drive today, I have the winter blahs and need to get out of the house for a while. I am on my 249 th day of freedom from smoking and counting. To anyone that's new to this site, stay strong and stay close to this site because quitting smoking is definitely doable.

Marilyn 

I don't know how well you can see my avatar but this is the north side of my house, I just finished shoveling and thought I'd share a pic of some of this white crap with you. We haven't got plowed out yet but I thought I'd shovel some now and then I will have to again once the plow comes anyway, I am very thankful to be an EX SMOKER. 

Marilyn 

All schools are canceled again today with winds at 25 gusting up 50 miles an hour causing 0 visibility plus it's still snowing , lots of cancelations. My husband went to work though but he's used to this, I used to travel in all kinds of weather conditions too but I have a choice now that I'm  retired. Anyway 248 DOF from smoking and counting. I hope that everyone has a wonderful day today and if you happen to be having gorgeous weather where you are think of me, tee, hee, hee. 

Marilyn ☺ 

I'm sooooooo thankful that I am secure in my quit because we are getting more snow and strong gusty winds this afternoon into tommorrow, crap, crap, crap. I have no desire to smoke over this storm or the one there predicting for Saturday which also could give us more significant white stuff, the only good thing about all this white crap is I am definitely getting lots of exercise this winter. This has been a very unusually long abnormal winter and we're supposed to stay unseasonably cold well into April, I blame Global warming but what do I know?--Anyway no matter how disgusted I am with the weather or my sister battling breast cancer and trying to get buses back and forth to the hospital for radiation therapy each day in this crazy weather. I wish I could help her but she lives 6 hrs away. Life is difficult for all of us EXERS but we must remain steadfast in our quits no matter what because whatever may happen in our lives we must remain strong in our quits because our lives depends on it so in saying that life is good it sure as H#ll beats the alternative, so I most definitely am a Happy quitter no matter the weather or anything negative in my life because smoking would create a whole new set of problems and I would be miserable and my COPD would definitely get worse, on that note everyone have a wonderful day. Oh yeah 247 DOF AND COUNTING YAY. 

It's finally decided to stop snowing with about a ft of the white stuff, all schools are canceled all through the Maritimes because of blizzard conditions with white outs, I thought I'd put a pic of the grandsons on my avatar for a while since I mention them quite often. I was supposed to get Mason yesterday afternoon but it was storming really bad, he was upset but understood even though he's not quite 6 yrs old yet, he could see how bad it was storming. Well I guess my husband must have made it to work so the plows must have been through. Have a wonderful day everyone, I need another coffee and try to get motivated. I believe I am on day 246 smoke free days and counting. 

Marilyn 

It's dark, dreary, dank and totally depressing outside but after 245 precious smoke free days, I won't smoke over the crappy weather or anything else. Today is a day to stay inside since I'm sure the roads are a mess so my husband and I will enjoy a peaceful, relaxing day and enjoy homemade pizza and a movie for supper, sounds good to me. I hope wherever you are my friends that all of you will enjoy this wonderful Sunday.

Marilyn 

Happy Saturday everyone, we are enjoying the calm before the storm here in the maritime provinces -8°F this chilly morning. I know some of my fellow EXERS also have to battle this crappy storm , we're going to have a ST Patricks Day storm too at least that's what the meteorologists are saying a double yay to that. Anyway pairs and spares is a monthly church function that we have in different homes each month, my husband and I don't usually go but tonight is at his Mothers so we pretty much have to go. Pairs of course is a couple and if you happen to be a spare I guess you are on your own. When I first heard that phrase I laughed. We have a batch of bread on and a crock pot of beans. I might put on a small batch of brown bread if I have enough ambition after I clean up the dishes . Today I'm celebrating my 8 months of Freedom from smoking yay, yay, yay and triple yay. Anyone can quit smoking but you must be willing to go through some rough patches and a couple of weeks maybe even three weeks of horrible withdrawals and cravings but it does get better and easier each day and once you realize that each time you get through the craves it should show you that you can win the war against the nicodemon not just the battle but the war and it's a wonderful feeling but you must get through those first few weeks first but each one of you is so much stronger than you realize, hang tough, stay strong because quitting smoking is definitely doable. Have a wonderful smoke free day everyone. Marilyn ☺

I hope that everyone will have a wonderful Friday the 13th, I am getting out of the house for the day with my Dad. Another snowstorm tommorrow night into Sunday, supposedly only about 6 inches possible but very windy. oh well it's March and the first day of Spring is a wk from today so surely the weather is going to shift soon and give us some Spring before Summer arrives. 243 DOF and counting, I can't believe tommorrow is another milestone 8 months of Freedom from the dreaded nicotine poison ,wow I never thought I could quit but here I am after 40 yrs of smoking it's so doable. In the first few weeks of my quit my moods were all over the place and I was wondering if I might be going out of my mind, I felt like I was crawling out of my skin at times and I literally felt like ripping off anyones face that might have looked at me the wrong way. My grandsons were safe they were the only ones that were safe from my roller coaster moods. Quitting smoking is definitely doable but you must be willing to go through 2 or 3 wks of withdrawal symptoms and cravings. I will never ever let my guard down and I will always remember the difficult journey to get to where I am today so I plan on making sure that I never take my quit for granted because the road to get here is something I will never go through again, I am going to my grave an EX SMOKER. 

Marilyn 

I am pleased that the sun is shining but the wind is gusting out of the Northwest so it feels so much colder outside than it really is which is °21F it's going down to 0°F for the next couple of nights but the days won't be too bad, another snowstorm for the week end about 6 inches possible yak but it will not stay and I am enjoying the warmth of the sun 242 precious days of freedom from the dreaded nicotine poison and continuing to count the blessings of quitting smoking and possibly adding a few more years to my life with hopefully a better quality of living , I really want to enjoy my family and friends but more than anything I want to enjoy my grandchildren before they get to the age that they don't want to hang out with the old fogies, my oldest grandson just turned 11 yesterday and he's already getting to that age where he's bored and I am trying to figure out what we can do together. I get him every other Saturday for a day, it's going to be easier to find things to do this summer, he is so happy that his gramp and I both quit smoking , quitting smoking is definitely all positive , life is too precious to deliberately kill ourselves by smoking knowing that it is slowly poisoning our bodies and that there's a good chance that we will die a slow agonizing death which is more than likely smoking related. To continue to smoke is all negative and to quit is all positive and is definitely doable. 

Marilyn 

Today the temps are supposed to possibly get upto 40 °F, wow I believe Spring is here even if the meteorologists are predicting a snowstorm for Saturday it's not going to stay too long so I'm not going to stress about it. It's definitely been a very long winter for many of us , hopefully there won't be any major flooding along the river banks we'll have to wait and see. Please enjoy a wonderful smoke free day ,I am on my 241st smoke free day and enjoying my life without cigarettes, to all of you new folks here stay strong because I believe that we are all stronger than the cravings, we must stay positive and get through the rough times. We must want our quits more than anything else in this world our lives depends on keeping and protecting it no matter what is happening in our lives, you must be stronger than your cravings. 

Marilyn 

Good morning everyone. Atlantic Canada is getting a couple of mild days of spring temps yay and yay again. Thursday night and Friday are suppose to be unseasonably cold but I will take the next couple of days and embrace them. Since Sunday I have had a non stop head ache but I believe it's stress from being so busy with lack of sleep along with the time change and this never ending winter but finally Mother Nature is going to spread some beautiful weather my way. Today is 240 precious smoke free days for me and counting. No matter how busy or stressed we may be we must protect our quits under any and all circumstances our lives depends on never smoking again. Cigarettes kill, quitting will give us a much better quality of life and maybe a few more years as well to enjoy family and friends. 

Marilyn 

I hope that everyone had a good weekend, from the moment I woke up this morning my phone started ringing non stop. I think everyone that could call me has called me so now I can catch up with all of you before I head out to my appointment. It's supposed to be a half decent day, we got about an inch of snow overnight nothing serious and the sun is trying to peek out through the clouds. 239 precious smoke free days and counting. Stay strong everyone with your quits, hang tough because living a life without cigarettes is so worth it. 

Marilyn 

I wish we could stop screwing around with the time change and just leave well enough alone I don't mind the fall when we gain an hr but I sure notice it in the Spring especially the last few years,  I must be getting old because when I was younger it never seemed to bother me . Oh well there's nothing I can do about it so I might just as well suck it up and get on with my day. It was a little warmer last night at 0°F  -18 ° celius but the house was snapping fairly loud from the frost the frost about quarter after 7 this morning and Sam got up on my bed with her poor body totally vibrating wanting me to get up and I really didn't want to. My husband tried to get her to leave me alone but she wanted me her Mom to get up anyway Damn it no wander, I didn't want to get out of bed it actually was only quarter after 6, oh well Sam was happy. This week we'll be getting some nice weather and I believe that we all deserve it because it's definitely been a very long winter for a lot of us and very expensive for fuel and plowing but Spring is coming this week, I am thinking positive. 238 days of smoke free living and I am so thankful for everyone here at EX for helping me through many rough patches along the way to get me to where I am today, next Saturday the 14th of March I will be hitting another milestone 8 months of Freedom from smoking yay, Enjoy your Sunday everyone .

Marilyn 

I haven't complained very much this winter concerning the cold weather and drastic shifts and of temps which causes the frost to come out of the house with loud snapping and banging noices which is terrifying for my 11 yr old dog Samantha Digger Jane Hartley. I do have a crate for her which does help tremendously because she can't tear my house apart at least. I'm hoping that last night will be the end of the frigid temps anyway Sam figured that I should get up at 3:40am, I held off until 4 o'clock but that's at least 3 hrs before I usually get up so it's going to be a very long day but that's ok with my hubbys help we will enjoy the birthday party for our grandkids. Tacos, pop and birthday cake or cupcakes. It's going to be a beautiful Saturday tired or not I am happy to be an EX SMOKER and just happy to be alive and on my 237 th day of freedom from cigarettes. Stay strong and stay smoke free everyone because quitting smoking is definitely doable and so worth the effort. 

Marilyn 

It's been a very long day but I got through the funeral. It was hard and very sad but I had no desire to smoke what so ever it's not even a blip on my radar and I even stopped outside the funeral home to talk to people I haven't seen in a long time with 8 maybe 9 people smoking away it didn't bother me at all. I wanted to share this with all of you. Quitting smoking is definitely doable and you haven't yet it's a great feeling being secure in your quit. I am definitely in a good place and I am one of those happy quitters and I love it, I am exhausted and I am hosting a birthday party tommorow for both my grandsons I expect at least 5 kids to be here so I should get to bed soon. I will try to write a short blog in the morning before Adam my oldest grandson gets here for 9am because he kidnaps my tablet. I hope everyone has a good nights sleep. 

Marilyn 

Okay Mother Nature, surely enough is enough. -28 °celius for the beginning of March, we may have broke some records brrrrrrr. Anyway I need to bake a birthday cake for the grandsons today both their birthdays are this month so I am having a party for them tommorrow. They like tacos so that's what we'll have. We should have fun. Today is busy baking and cleaning this morning and the funeral this afternoon. It's going to be a hard day but I will get through it smoke free because I have 236 precious smoke free days and 1 wk from tommorrow is another milestone 8 months, wow I never thought I could actually quit smoking but I did and before long I will be at the 1 year milestone. quitting smoking is absolutely doable.

Marilyn

I guess I must be more tired than I thought. I didn't come across the way I meant to in my earlier blog this morning, what I was trying to say was that even though I have alot going on in my life and with the funeral tomorrow and I know quite a few of the people smoke and of course will be smoking but I won't smoke over this or my sister going through radiation therapy for breast cancer, she's finished with the chemo and is also taking hormone replacement pills . I didn't mean to worry anyone, I'll double check what I write next time. I am tired so I will be more vigilant because I do not and will not slip up. I will be on guard because nothing is more important than protecting my quit. Thanks again everyone for caring and I do apologize if I worried anyone. 

Marilyn 

I am still waiting impatiently for Mother Nature to get off her high horse and spread a little warm weather to Atlantic Canada and every where else that could use some warmth. The clocks go ahead 1 hr Saturday night or I guess it's actually 2 am Sunday morning either way we lose an hrs sleep. It never used to bother me but I must be getting old because the last couple of years I notice the difference and it takes about a week to get used to the change. 235 days of freedom from smoking today and counting. Lots happening as well ,  life continues on whether we smoke or not and I prefer dealing with the good and the bad that's happening in my life without chain smoking cigarettes and possibly horking up a lung. Tommorow afternoon is the funeral for my former sister in law most of you probably read my blog on Monday where she passed away during the night at the age of 44 the next day Tuesday was her 45th birthday. Anyway there's definitely going to be a lot of smokers outside the funeral home. I have no desire to smoke but I need to be on guard and ever so vigilant that the habit of 40 yrs of smoking that i just don't pick one up and take a huge drag, so I most definitely will be on guard not to slip up and totally scew up my beautiful quit and for what a sickening, disgusting, poison, cancer stick no thanks , I will remain smoke free but I will be careful with everything happening in my life. 

Marilyn 

I hope that everyone is enjoying the month of March so far. I am waiting impatiently for Mother Nature to get off her high horse and spread a little warm weather and put an end to all the snowstorms we've been waiting long enough but I'm told patience is a virtue and when I think about it quitting smoking for me took alot of patience to get through some of the most difficult times of my life, the times when people didn't dare speak or even look at me in case I might rip off their face or bite their heads off. I actually wondered in those first few weeks if quitting smoking would ever get easier and my answer is definitely yes, it most definitely gets easier each day but you must be willing to go through some rough patches in the first few weeks to get to a better place in your quit . Today is my 234 th day and counting a week from Sat on the 14th will be my 8 month milestone, believe me everyone that is new to this site quitting smoking is definitely doable. I smoked just shy of 40 yrs and it's been quite a roller coaster ride but I am living proof that we can be happy after cigarettes. Have a wonderful day everyone. 

Marilyn 

I am weary this morning, I believe I was overtired when I went to bed and with the wind howling outside I thought the house was going to come off the foundation. At least it didn't snow too much yesterday and last night but we're getting more snow overnight tonight and tomorrow. I can live with these storms now because they won't last ,it was 0°F this morning but I know it's got to warm up soon I hope. My former sister in law that passed away in her sleep yesterday morning at 3 am would have been 45 yrs old today,they took her to get a autopsy done of course to find out what happened. I am smoke free for life and today is 233 DOF. Have a great day everyone. 

Marilyn 

I have stayed very close to my ex in laws even though my first husband and I don't communicate at all unless there's something going on with our son or daughter. I was 15 when I first met these wonderful people and 16 when I became part of the family, 13 yrs later when my marriage ended my Mother in law said to me I told you 13 yrs ago that he wouldn't change and I have remained part of the family even though I've been remarried almost 19 yrs even my husband now is close to the family. My former Mother in law passed away the end of November a yr ago, her oldest daughter passed the beginning of January a yr ago. The youngest daughter passed away in her sleep last night, she just turned 45. When I heard that this morning I literally lost it and had to bury my feelings and calm down because I had my 5 yr old grandson Mason here and he was asking me what's wrong Grammy??? Anyway life is short we have no idea if there is going to be a tommorow for anyone of us so let's treasure each and every day we have with friends and family. I had no desire for a cigarette because I know life going to happen good or bad and whether I smoke or not and I most definitely choose not to smoke ever again. I feel so bad for my ex husband and all the family members. Please choose to live a smoke free life no matter what is happening in your lives, I am on my 232 nd day of freedom from cigarettes. 

Marilyn 

It's snowing lightly with mild temps for this second day of March, + 21 ° F or -6 °celius. To me this feels like a heat wave. When my grandson Mason wakes up we'll have to go outside for awhile, I am very thankful for the site being back up this morning. I believe today is my 232 nd day of freedom from smoking and counting in less than 2 wks I will have 8 months in, believe me everyone that is fairly new to this site quitting smoking is very doable, it's definitely hair pulling stressful, rip your face off roller coaster ups and downs moods but very doable. You just have to get through these rough days and each time you do get through these craves, the next time should be a little easier. You can do it, I never in a million years thought I could quit after 40 yrs of smoking but here I am almost at 8 months, stay strong, stay committed and be willing to go through some rough patches to get to that good place in your quit, it really will happen enjoy the day.

Marilyn 

I decided to check to see if the site was working at 6:20 pm and thankfully it is up and running again. I hope everyone had a productive day, I've had Mason all day and he's spending the night and staying with us tommorow as well. Most of you know he's my youngest grandson, he's going to be six years old this month and the oldest grandson will be 11yrs old , my husband will have 11 months smoke free on the 25th of this month. My son will be 32 this month. March is a busy month and the 14th of March is 8 months smoke free for me. This is my forever quit N.O.P.E because I will never ever forget the long road to get here. Life is grand without a cigarette in hand. Have a wonderful evening everyone. 

Marilyn
