It's the last long wk end of Summer School starts back up on Tuesday I don't think the kids are ready to go back yet but they have to, so hopefully it'll be a good year for the teachers and students I'm having a total brain fart this morning so please just stick with your quit and keep stacking up those precious Days of Freedom because your life is literally counting on you to nurture and protect the best gift that you'll ever give yourself which is the gift of LIFE ....

Our lives deserves for us to look after ourselves because if we don't nobody else can do it for us and sometimes I wish that I hadn't waited for 40 yrs before quitting smoking of well over a pk a day BUT obviously I wasn't ready to quit or I would've BUT when I found out that I have mild copd that's when I realized that I wasn't invincible and I didn't want to end up on oxygen 7/24, so as most of you know that's when I found this site and everyone here in this awesome community of EXers and read and read some more and stayed close and kept on reading and then life happened and I forgot about this site until on my 18th day when I was struggling to the point where I was ready to drive to the store and buy a carton of cigarettes instead of just a pk BUT thankfully I remembered and got on line and commented on something and up until that point I'd been lurking in the shadows and hadn't let myself be known BUT by commenting that brought so many helpful replys back to me including moody_9-18-13 who suggested I tell a little bit about myself and so I did and here I am well over four precious Smokefree years later if everyone would stick with N.O.P.E and vigilance and keep them away from their face and realize that the only way is through then there's absolutely No Way That Anyone Could Fail and besides Relapsing would totally suck big time UGH on another DAY ONE  BUT YAY for each and every Day WON ......

Yikes it's the last Hump Day of August already! I'm wondering where Summer is because Fall is coming right up and I pretty much missed Summer somehow  not really I'm joking   because I got to enjoy the little things in life that's actually the the big things in life by getting out to our community swimming pool with my daughter Mandy and Mason and Emma and enjoyed lots of barbecues and even had our oldest grandson Adam here to enjoy some barbecued steaks and Summer isn't over yet so I'll be enjoying it Smokefree because I am living a life of Freedom and enjoying life on life's terms mind you I do remember those early days and weeks of my quit and how difficult it was at times BUT I knew that I was going to succeed because of all the reading that I did here and the mantras I've learned and of the awesome people that helped me through the rough patches so as difficult as it was at times I knew that as long as I kept moving forward and stacking up my precious days of Freedom that it was going to get easier and easier with time under my belt and that it was going to be DOABLE which it was even though it didn't feel like it at times, so if you're struggling stay close because we're all here to help you in any way we can and by sticking with N.O.P.E and vigilance then there's no way you can FAIL, chin up and believe in yourself and be willing determined and totally committed to succeed and you can and will be successful in living a life of Freedom and boy oh boy it's so worth it •••••

Wow September is pretty much here it's the Labor day long wk end here in Canada which means school starts back up on Tuesday, Fall is coming up which means Winter will follow but for now where I live in the Atlantic Provinces we're under heat warnings where in Western Canada in a few higher elevations they got some snow UGH but hey life goes on no matter the weather or anything else  smoking isn't even a blimp on my Radar because I'm one of those Happy Quitters you hear about so if you're reading this and you haven't bit the bullet yet now's the time to join the ranks of being an Ex Smoker and if you have quit and hit some rough patches please know that you will get through them but you must believe it and stick with N.O.P.E and vigilance because S.I.N.A.O Smoking Is Not An Option, life is way too short to knowingly continue slowly killing killing yourself, it's definetly difficult in those early days and weeks of quitting smoking  BUT it's absolutely Doable to get through them and we're all here to help in any way we can...... Keep moving forward and get that UMPH and keep stacking up those precious Days of Freedom.......

Almost 15 .....

Posted by Marilyn.H.July.14.14. Aug 27, 2018

My Samantha Digger Jane Hartley will be 15 on October 11th, she's really showing her age but besides being on bladder pills she's still content and eating and drinking water and her bowels and bladder are working BUT she's pacing and panting throughout the night the last couple of weeks which is really breaking my sleep up she nearly upset my 32 inch TV trying to climb up the stand ugh, last night I put her in with Mark and shut his door he didn't wake up probably because he had a few beer and I got some much needed sleep we've been sleeping in separate rooms since I had my jaw surgery way back and we got in the habit of it, here's a couple pics of my Sam, I took the bottom just a month or so ago the top one is several months ago before I got the new flooring down.....

I find the older I get the more I seem to be falling apart   I hear about people aging gracefully  I don't think that's me though  BUT I'm still getting around and am able to get quite a few things done maybe not as fast as I would like or quite as much as I would like BUT I'm thankful for what I can do because there's so many people so much worse off, I can't tell you too much about this particular appointment yet BUT I should know more about it in a week or two so here's hoping for good news. It's great to be able to get moving first thing in the morning over a few sips of coffee and being able to function without 4 or 5 coffee and 5 or 6 cigarettes and still dragging my butt  mind you I still enjoy a leisurely morning BUT it's not necessary to function it's just nice, there's nothing BUT absolute positives when it comes to quitting smoking BUT all negatives to smoking so hey I'm saying YAY and YAY again for Smokefree living and YAY for each and every Day WON actually let's make it a double YAY for each and every Day WON!   Let's be sure to take EXtra good care of ourselves because if we don't nobody else can do it for us and once we've brightened up and took our lives back by quitting smoking let's always remember and N.E.F - Never Ever Forget  - to nurture and protect the best gift that any of us will ever give ourselves which is the gift of LIFE! 

I have an early morning appointment, I'll be out of here by 8 o'clock but I'll be around after lunch Atlantic time, so I'll be checking in to say hello and I'll be pushing N.O.P.E and vigilance because none of us wants or needs another Day ONE so Vigilance is key to a lifetime of Freedom and each and every Day WON totally Rocks BUT you must get through the rough patches so you can come out the other side smiling and realising how much better life is an EXer.....

I'm getting ready to cook my green tomatoe chow so I'll just wish everyone a Stressfree hasslefree but most importantly a Smokefree Day and by chance if you're reading this and you're struggling with remaining quit please know that we're all here to help you in any way we can so blog HELP and wait for a few minutes until someone can get on and help you through it BUT whatever don't give in to it sit on your hands if you have to because there's no way you can smoke if you're sitting on your hands as difficult as some of the craves and moodswings can be it's absolutely Doable to get through them, not easy by any stretch of the imagination at times BUT definetly Doable and totally worth it to be Free. ..

 

I know that it's not easy by any stretch of the imagination at times in those early weeks to stick with your quit especially when you're in the middle of a stressful situation BUT as difficult as it might be you will make it through by taking deep breaths and believing in yourself and by being willing determined and totally committed to make it through by believing that it will get easier and easier with time under your belt because it will as long as you stick with your quit, it's been one of those mornings for me where I wish I had of stayed in bed instead of getting up at 6:30 but I've got lot's to do and thankfully being an Ex Smoker makes this bad start to the day not so bad after all because I'm not sitting outside chainsmoking with a cloud of smoke surrounding me not getting a blessed thing done other than wasting my time,  life really does get better and better without the crutch of cigarettes and boy oh boy it's so worth it once you've relearned life without the crutch thinking WOW I'm so glad that that I don't smoke anymore knowing that I can handle things much easier now that I'm an EXer .....

There seems to be quite a few people struggling with remaining quit please know that you can and will be successful in living a life of Freedom BUT you must believe that you can and then you will succeed BUT it's going to BE EXtremely difficult at times by any stretch of the imagination BUT definetly Doable you must be willing determined and totally committed to succeed no matter what is happening because life happens whether we smoke or not and there's never going to be a good time to quit so you have to bite the bullet and take back your life which is depending on you to quit and stay quit, I always want to remember and N.E.F  - Never Ever Forget those early days and weeks because just like everyone else I had some hair pulling, crying, lack of sleep, rip your face off times that I am never going back to because I made it through with all my hair still in tact and I didn't rip anyone's face off although I felt like it a few times I made it through after 40 yrs of smoking at least 30 smokes a day and at least a half dozen failed attempts at quitting smoking UNTIL I found this site and everyone here in this awesome community and after reading about this horrid addiction I got the right Mindset and promised myself the night before quitting that I would never pick up another cigarette no matter what and with N.O.P.E - Not One Puff Ever and Vigilance I made it and so can you and we're all here to help in any way we can..... Getting rid of the Crutch of cigarettes takes time BUT anything in this life worth having takes time and effort and once you have the right Mindset you will succeed believe it. ....

I keep saying life happens whether we smoke or not and we all know that it's true and it's also true that we don't have to Smoke just because Life throws us a monkey wrench we all have a choice to relapse or to keep our quits and even if you're in the early days and weeks of quitting smoking you can choose to stick with N.O.P.E and vigilance because your life is literally counting on you to stick with your quit. I'll be 59 in November, my older sister Cheryl is one year and sixteen days older than I am she was diagnosed with breast cancer three yrs ago with stage 2 grade 3 breast cancer she did the chemo and radiation and has two more yrs of HRT'S she's still cancer free, I just found out about an hour ago my younger sister Marion the one that's had two major neck surgeries in less than three yrs just found out that she has breast cancer, she still has more tests to find out the stage and grade oh but I pray that they found  it sooner than they did Cheryls, Marion will be 55 in October and isn't walking too much yet her balance isn't good she's pretty much in a wheelchair both my sisters were smokers Marion quit 7 yrs ago, Cheryl just quit again in May. We all need to look after ourselves because if we don't nobody else can do it for us, I had to share because I'm pretty frustrated and feel helpless right now but I'm praying with all my heart and soul now  when it comes to smoking all I think of is Whew I'm so thankful that I don't do that anymore because it's much easier dealing with stress and anxiety living LIFE on LIFE'S Terms without the crutch of cigarettes because I'm not sitting outside chainsmoking with a stinky full ashtray full of butts with cigarette smoke swirling around my face trying to think through a fog of smoke ......... these are my two sisters, Cheryl lives in a different

Province but they got together this Summer with our Dad and neice unfortunately I didn't get to go.

It really doesn't matter where you are in your quit whether you're on day one or day one hundred, one thousand or two thousand or wherever it just doesn't matter at all because the only thing that does matter is that you quit and stay quit no matter what, we're all on this quit journey together and we're here for each other and we celebrate each and every Day WON! Our lives literally depends on us to nurture and protect the best gift that any of us will ever give ourselves which is the gift of LIFE! It's super fantastic BUT if you're struggling take a deep breath and  hang on tight and know you can and will get through the rough patches and relearn life without the smokes AND boy oh boy it's so worth it once you get to that good place in your quit where you realize how much better life is an Ex Smoker.....

Life is full of ups and downs that's just LIFE BUT it's absolutely Doable to quit smoking and stay quit even during the down times it's much more difficult when life throws you a curve ball in those early days and weeks of quitting BUT it's absolutely Doable and so very worth it you can keep your quit by believing in yourself and by being willing determined and totally committed you can and will be successful your quit, my quit, everyone's quit literally depends on us to nurture and protect the best gift that any of us will ever give ourselves which is the gift of LIFE which I consider the one gift that'll keep on giving day after day week after week month after month and Lord willing year after year and it's vital to persevere through the roller coaster ups and downs of withdrawals and moodswings and lack of sleep to get to that point where you realize how much better life is without the crutch of cigarettes so if you're struggling with remaining quit please know that we're all here to help you in any way we can and by sticking with N.O.P.E and vigilance then there's no way you can FAIL,  those early weeks can be EXtremely horrid BUT you can make it through by keeping your mind as well as your hands occupied ,do whatever you have to BUT don't relapse you can keep moving forward and stacking up your precious Days of Freedom so each evening you can look yourself in the mirror and smile and say yay for another Day WON as difficult as quitting can be it's much easier than continuing to Smoke , I quit for my health I didn't want to wait for a Dr. to  tell me to go home and get my affairs in order so after 40 yrs of smoking of at least 30 smokes a day and with the help of this community and all of the mantras including living by N.O.P.E  - Not One Puff Ever and Vigilance & telling myself over & over again that I don't do that anymore and sometimes I yelled it right out loud and I kept them away from my face! HELL NO IT WASN'T EASY AT TIMES!!!! BUT IT WAS AND IS ABSOLUTELY WORTH IT!!!!  Today I have 1,500 Glorious Smokefree Days and Counting and I say YAY for each and every Day WON and YAY for Freedom.... as long as you don't quit you'll find that good place in your quit and you'll be so glad that you are living a life of Freedom....

I want to thank everyone that commented on my post last night I really appreciate each and everyone of you, I'm going to check out different avenues and see about getting back into physio again BUT hey I'm a tough old broad frustrated at the moment BUT I'm Smokefree and am so happy that I am because life is going to happen good or bad whether we smoke or not and choosing NOT to Smoke during stress and anxiety or whatever the situation or emotions may be is DOABLE , by sticking with N.O.P.E and vigilance we can continue stacking up those precious Days of Freedom so each evening we can look ourselves in the mirror and smile and say yay for another Day WON.....

I left before 8 this morning with my sister in law, Mark's sister Wendy and had my appointment with the orthopaedic surgeon concerning my ankle and got the results from a CT scan I had done awhile ago there's not much they can do I'm already wearing a Velcro wrap that was prescribed it's pretty much arthritis so she prescribed celebrex, I  told her my stomach lining is pretty thin and I'm not supposed to take Advil or asa's, she said it was supposed to be easy on the stomach and to eat with it well when I got the prescription filled my pharmacist was concerned anyway it's been a long day, this stupid ankle has been giving me problems for over four years now and I thought I'd get some answers today but I really don't know alot more now other than I'm not taking the celebrex until I know it's safe I've also got diverticulotis ,hiatus hernia and acid reflux so geesh can you tell I don't like taking drugs? the only things I take is a generic crestor 10 mg and a generic tecta 40 mg for acid reflux so grrrr on the drugs especially with my stomach issues BUT hey I'm not smoking over it although I'm pretty frustrated, huge hug to everyone smoking isn't even a blimp on my Radar anymore other than thinking how glad I am that I don't smoke anymore, I got a copy of the CT scan, the Dr did explain but I'm in brain fog at the moment I am actually lucky because it could be alot worse so deep breaths for me and hopefully I'll sleep tonight so I can feel halfway rested tomorrow.....

 

I have an appointment 2 hrs away in the morning and have to be out of here before 8 o'clock there's lots of road construction going on so I'm giving myself an extra half hour in case of delays so I'll check in when I get back sometime ln the afternoon, it's great to be Smokefree because it's wonderful to be able to go anywhere anytime whenever wherever and however without worrying about where to sneak off to suck on a cancer stick if you're in a rough patch please take a deep breath and know that we're all here to help you in any way we can stick with N.O.P.E and vigilance because if you do that then there's absolutely no way you can FAIL..... And the longer you're quit the easier it will get then you'll realize just how much better life is as an Ex Smoker,  life really is Grand without a Cigarette in Hand.....

I used to do thousands of things over the years that I don't do anymore alot of them are because my body parts won't allow it without reminding me with excruciating pain so I don't do those things anymore I used to drink I was a functioning alcoholic so I thought BUT for health reasons I don't do that anymore now I'm a Happy recovering alcoholic and the same goes for smoking my health family and friends BUT especially my life are so much more important than the damned Cancer Sticks  I'm so happy that I wised up and don't do that anymore, thanks for that phrase Dale that's one of my favorites along with keep them away from your face and the only way out is through! I say boy oh boy it's so worth it so hang on tight and don't let go of the best GIFTthat any of us will ever give ourselves which is the gift of LIFE...

I credit this community of awesome people for helping me through the roller coaster ups and downs of withdrawals and moodswings and lack of sleep to get to that point where I realized that I was going to succeed, I listened when I was told to read everything I could about this horrid addiction ,I blogged whenever I was having a horrendous crave, I commented on blogs and I made it through to that good place in my quit where I realized that there's definetly Life after Cigarettes and it's super fantastic so if you're struggling hang on tight and don't let go of the best gift that you will ever give yourself which is the gift of LIFE as difficult as quitting can be it's absolutely Doable and totally worth it to be Free hang tough so you can get to that good place in your quit, once you stop and think about how many decades you smoked then it only stands to reason that it's bound to take time to relearn life without the smokes BUT boy oh boy it's so worth it ....

Each and every day can and will be Smokefree as long as we stick to our quit and the longer we're quit the easier it will get and the better life is without the crutch of cigarettes if you're struggling and not sure whether you believe me or not then please stick with your quit and prove it to yourself BUT you must give it three months actually make it four because after decades and decades of smoking it's going to take time to relearn life without the smokes BUT boy oh boy it's so worth it to be Free so hang tough and stick with N.O.P.E and vigilance.....

I remember my early days and weeks of quitting smoking and I pray that I'll always remember and N.E.F  - Never Ever Forget because I never ever want to go back to Day ONE again BUT Each and every Day WON is awesome BUT when I was in the middle of horrendous craves or in a brain fog and maybe laughing one minute and blatting like a baby the next at times it seemed almost overpowering notice that I said almost because getting through those rough patches was absolutely Doable although at the time it sure didn't feel like it BUT after smoking for 40 years at roughly 30 smokes a day once I stopped and thought about it then it made perfect sense that it was going to take time to get through the roller coaster ups and downs of withdrawals and moodswings and lack of sleep to get to that point where I would realize how much better life is without the crutch of cigarettes, if you're struggling with remaining quit please know that you can and will get to that good place in your quit but you must believe it and stick with N.O.P.E and vigilance anything in this life worth having takes time and effort and quitting smoking should be at the top of the list of things to do for your health family and friends but especially your life which is depending on you to quit and stay quit.... the bottom pic is two of my grandchildren and definetly a major incentive to be around to enjoy LIFE on LIFE'S Terms as an Ex Smoker I'm smiling because I'm a Happy Quitter plus Life is Grand without a Cigarette in Hand .....

Quitting smoking Is the wisest decision that anyone of us will ever make in our lifetime and it's definetly the best gift that any of us will ever give ourselves which is the gift of LIFE because the older we get the more we should realize that life is short and we should be doing everything in our power to look after ourselves because if we don't nobody else can do it for us I know for me finding this awesome community was totally paramount in the success of my quit by coming here and reading and learning about this horrid addiction and learning the mantras and having everyone come on line and help talk me through the horrendous craves and just knowing everyone was and is here for support, there's definetly Life after Cigarettes......

Whether we smoke or quit or be quit for a few days, weeks, months or years then relapse because of complacency, stress, alcohol consumption or whatever the situation is a choice that's why I like to push these Mantras that I've learned right here and I'm sure there's lots more but here's a few and as long as we live by them then there's no way we can FAIL .... N.O.P.E - Not One Puff Ever and Vigilance - S.I.N.A.O - Smoking Is Not An Option - N.E.F  - Never Ever Forget - those early days and weeks of quitting smoking because another Day ONE would totally suck big time but another Day WON is awesome, keep them away from your face and the only way out is through, looking after ourselves is also key - H.A.L.T  - Hungry Angry Lonely Tired -- our lives literally depends on us to quit and stay quit and it's up to us to nurture and protect the best gift that any of us will ever give ourselves which is the gift of LIFE as difficult as quitting can be it's absolutely Doable and totally worth it to be Free ..... Remain Smokefree N.M.W. -  No Matter What .... I say that LIFE is Grand without a Cigarette in Hand BUT you must believe it and stick with your quit and get through the roller coaster ups and downs of withdrawals and moodswings and lack of sleep to get to that point where you realize how much better life is without the crutch of cigarettes, it definitely takes time to get to that good place in your quit BUT when you do you'll be so glad that you stuck with it and be living a life of Freedom .....

We all know that things happen in the blink of an eye good or bad we really don't know if there's going to be a tomorrow for our loved ones or for ourselves or our neighbor down the road so looking after ourselves is so important and  quitting smoking and sticking with it no matter what is happening in life is key to a lifetime of Freedom, yesterday morning around 8 o'clock I turned my TV on and was busy in the kitchen when I heard multiple casualties on Brookeside Drive in Fredericton so I went in the living room thinking I must have heard wrong so I turned on my tablet and put FB on which I've put pretty much all of the news channels on my timeline and sure enough at that time it was actively still happening, four people dead two police officers and two civilians and we still don't know this morning how many other victims are injured in the hospital these things like this just don't happen in my little neck of the woods this is where I go when I want to go to a bigger shopping mall and where I go when I need to see a specialist, I was just in Fredericton a few wks ago at the hospital getting a bone scan done, yesterday the hospital said not to go unless it was an emergency because of the shooting victims I still can't believe it! The shooter is alive but also injured I'm dumbfounded by it all anyway I'm not smoking over it as stressed out as I am because I don't smoke anymore Fredericton is the Capital of New Brunswick it's a quiet city actually New Brunswick is pretty quiet BUT unfortunately things happen that's totally out of our control BUT whether we smoke orNOT is completely in our control and if we've been quit for awhile whether we relapse or NOT is also completely in our control and choosing NOT to Smoke during stress and anxiety or whatever the situation or emotion is a choice and we must choose to stick with N.O.P.E and vigilance because S.I.N.A.O Smoking Is Not An Option and once we've been quit for awhile I hope we always remember and N.E.F  - Never Ever Forget those early days of quitting smoking because another Day ONE would totally suck big time but another Day WON is awesome because life is short and we all need to live life on life's terms and it's absolutely Doable, we don't need the Damned  Cancer Sticks to enjoy the little things in life that's actually the the big things in life because living LIFE on LIFE'S Terms is absolutely DOABLE .....

Once you've decided to bite the bullet and take back your life from the clutches of the nicotine poison then there's no way you can FAIL as long as you are willing determined and totally committed to succeed then you can perservere through the roller coaster ups and downs of withdrawals and moodswings and lack of sleep and you can stay close to this site and blog Help if you're struggling you can read everything you can about quitting smoking and remaining quit because there's a wealth of information here to strengthen your resolve to keep moving forward and stacking up your precious DOF - Days of Freedom & stick with N.O.P.E - Not One Puff Ever and Vigilance ,there's definetly Life after Cigarettes and it's super fantastic so hang on tight and don't let go of the best gift that any of us will ever give ourselves which is the gift of LIFE which I consider the one gift that'll keep on giving day after day week after week month after month and Lord willing year after year and it's a wonderful feeling to be able to look yourself in the mirror each evening and smile and say yay for another Day WON, I'm one of those those people that smoked at least 30 smokes a day for 40 years and never thought I'd ever quit but finding out that I have mild copd that's when I decided I wanted to be around to to enjoy my family and friends but especially the grandchildren and I wanted and still want the best quality of living I can have so as difficult as those first few weeks were it was Doable and totally worth it to be Free!

Deep breaths, chin up and know that there's definetly Life after Cigarettes and it's super fantastic so if you're reading this and you're struggling with remaining quit please know that you can and will be successful, believe it and continue to be willing determined and totally committed to succeed and you can and will be successful BUT you must believe it and stick with N.O.P.E and vigilance because your life is literally counting on you to quit and stay quit, as difficult as it may be it really is Doable and so very worth it to be Free so hang tough and keep stacking up your precious Days of Freedom so each evening you can look yourself in the mirror and smile and say yay for another Day WON! Because going back to another DAY ONE would totally suck big time and please remember that anything in this life worth having takes time and effort and quitting smoking should be at the top of the list of things to do for your health family and friends but especially your LIFE.....  when we achieve the UMPH then we will have that wonderful AHA moment and it's the greatest feeling ever.

Quitting smoking is a choice and it's absolutely the best choice that any of us will make for ourselves and it's definetly the best gift that we'll ever give ourselves which is the gift of LIFE which I consider the one gift that'll keep on giving day after day week after week month after month and Lord willing year after year and it's up to each individual to make the Choice to quit or Not to quit but hopefully if a person chooses NOT To Quit that they will decide to make the decision to quit before a Dr. tells them that they waited too long  that they should go home and get their affairs in order! As difficult as quitting can be it's much easier than the alternative, quitting now while you still have the choice so you can still have a much better quality of life, that is the reason that I quit so I could have a much better quality of living to enjoy the little things in life that's actually the the big things in life and I'm so glad that I did!

In those first days and weeks of quitting smoking it's EXtremely difficult to say the least I'm sure there's so many times when you feel like throwing your hands up in the air and give up, I know that I felt like ripping my hair out or better yet rip someone's face off and it didn't matter who's face BUT whew thankfully I knew enough about quitting because of this community and the wisdom that was shared with me like some of these Mantras- I Don't Do That Anymore- N.O.P.E- Not One Puff Ever- The Only Way Out Is Through- Keep Them Away From Your Face- S.I.N.A.O-Smoking Is Not An Option -- N.E.F- Never Ever- THIS IS A GREAT ONE FOR WHEN YOU'VE BEEN QUIT FOR AWHILE BECAUSE WE MUST NOT LET OURSELVES BECOME LAZY AND COMPLACENT BECAUSE ANOTHER DAY ONE WOULD TOTALLY SUCK BIG TIME BUT ANOTHER DAY WON IS THE BEST OF THE BEST AND A DOUBLE YAY ACTUALLY LETS SAY TRIPLE YAY FOR CONTINUING TO STACK UP OUR PRECIOUS D.O.F- DAYS OF FREEDOM, as difficult as quitting can be it's ABSOLUTELY DOABLE plus our lives literally depends on us to quit and stay quit because we all know that smoking kills and it doesn't matter who you are or where you live smoking kills and it kills slowly BUT sticking with N.O.P.E and vigilance will guarantee you a Smokefree Life because if you stick with your quit then there's no way you can FAIL.....

I love it too because it's so scrumdiliicious, yum, yum yum, yummy right Nancy  Youngatheart.7.4.12?

I know that for me the older I get and I'm 58 yrs old the more I realize just how short life really is and that we should do everything in our power to look after ourselves because if we don't nobody else can do it for us and quitting smoking should be at the top of the list of things to do so we can have the best quality of living and be around to enjoy the little things in life that's actually the the big things in life with the right Mindset we can do just about anything We put our minds to, I'm one of those those people that used to say that I had no intentions of ever quitting that I'd probably be buried with a Cigarette BUT once I found out that I have mild copd that was the end of that crazy thinking because I decided my life was worth more than the damned Cancer Sticks I believe that I'm day 1,482 or something like that!  Was it easy? HELL NO!!!!! BUT Was it worth it?  HELL YES!!!!!! There's definetly Life after Cigarettes reach out and grab the best gift the best gift that you'll ever give yourself which is the gift of LIFE! As difficult as quitting can be it's absolutely Doable and totally worth it to be Free.......

The early days and weeks of our quits can be almost overpowering notice that I said almost because getting through those rough patches can be difficult to say the least but it's also very Doable and totally worth it so do whatever you have to get through them because you can plus your LIFE literally depends on you to quit and stay quit and boy oh boy it's so worth it to be able to go anywhere anytime whenever wherever and however without worrying about where to sneak off to suck on a cancer stick, there's definetly Life after Cigarettes and it's super fantastic so hang on tight and don't let go of the best gift that any of us will ever give ourselves which is the gift of LIFE.....
