Just a quickie...

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,

Ellen
