Hello my EX Community Family.Happy Sunday everyone...Today with the help of my awesome God above and all of you amazing people on this site this is my 14 day smoke free☺still taking things a day at a time I have my good days and bad days and still fighting the mind set of a smoker but riding out every urge and cravings as it comes...this week I was pretty much home bound I caught that awful cold that has been going around and pretty much kicked my butt this past week but i am at the tail end of it now and feeling much better...i have been reading a lot of books lately and word searches and cross word puzzles are becoming my new friend especially when I can't sleep or get anxious at 3:00 A.M. they come in handy...well that another little up date on how i am doing i hope everyone is doing well and working there program to stay healthy and smoke free I send everyone positive energy good vibes and hugs keep pressing on

I am doing ok hanging in there today is my sixth day smoke free the first 48 hours after were pretty tuff but i am sticking to my guns and not lighting up.I have did my research before this journey of mine began about using any quit smoking aids like the patch or medication like chantix because i have used them before and felt that they were not much help so i decided this time not to use them but i have stocked up on a few other things that i felt would be useful to me to help me stay quit like hard candy regular chewing gum fruits and vegetable sticks like carrots and celery i have also bought a couple of things to keep me busy like word searches cross word puzzles books to read and a note book to write my thoughts and feelings down so one of my biggest triggers is after i eat a meal so now right after i eat i pull out the word searchs and cross word puzzles and work on them for a while.so that is a little up date on my progress thank you my fellow EXers for listening to me i send everyone good positive energy good vibes and hugs....six days of freedom☺

Hello everyone as Christmas is fastly approaching and 2017 is coming to a end and everyone will be busy having fun with family and friends first of all i would like to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a happy New Year beside all the fun and laughter this time of year brings it could also bring a lot of anxiety and could be a bit overwhelming at times because thier will be some family members and friends who will not be smoke free and will be lighting up in front of you protect your quit and have a plan for yourself it is ok to take your breaks away from the festivities to care for yourself because at the end of the day what is most important here is you and if you have to get away for a bit and get support from this site your EXCommunity family that's ok too that's what we are here for each other so with all that said stay safe and happy holidays☺

Hello to all you EXers,

To say the truth May 2, was too soon for a quit date I decided to quit 2 weeks before May 2, and I was not ready at all.I have a lot of kaos going on in my life right now.I have set a new quit date I am shooting for somewhere around July 2.The reason why I have not been on this site because I felt guilty that I did not stick to my quit and that I have failed.But I am not giving up on myself just yet I need too refocus and spend more time on this site reading and educating myself with the tools too fight this battle and make this next quit a sucess!!!

Thanks for your patience and understanding,

-Ralph

P.S.And for the poeple that are smoke free remember NOPE!

My quit date is 3 days away(May,2)and i am starting to stress a little.I feel happy and nervous at the same time.I have quit before for 2yrs but for some reason this quit seems harder then the first.Right about now i could use some encouragement from you EXers you all have walked in my shoes and been 72 hrs away from quit day.I am going to stay postive and stay away from my trigger places....I can do this,I can do this,wish me luck.

Thanks,

-Ralph
