First of all, thank you ALL for the congratulations on my five years of freedom. I am exhausted from working today but I wanted to share something with you.
A farmer came in to deliver eggs to the cafe and I gave him the appropriate paperwork to fill out so he could get paid...he asked me what the date was and I honestly could not remember and then when I saw that it was the 19th, which I clearly KNEW. I told him that it was my anniversary of quitting smoking. He asked me how long it had been and I said "five years"...he said he had been working on it but had not been able to quit. I gave him the address, becomeanex.org and told him that I would never have made it without this site and without the support I got here. I suggested that he consider joining, even it was just as a lurker. I told him how important it is to read blogs and get perspectives from others...he was pretty excited and so was his wife. I hope he comes. I have no idea what his user name will be but I REALLY hope that he comes. I explained to him the damage that I have and that I really would not wish it on ANYONE. It was a GOOD day...seems like it was longer than a day but it was good. It is time for this old lady to hit the sack before the sack hits her.
Love and thanks again,
