Good Afternoon..

been a good while since I’ve been on here.. well I past my 1 year anniversary.. not one cigarette have I smoked since I quit .. I’ve been doing good.. I have put some weight on for sure.. but I have to be honest .. I have been wanting a cigarette for the past few days.. it’s just one in out of the blue.. I still have not but I’m actually nervous .. why is this happening now after a year? There is no nicotine in my system .. my advice is to never stray from this site.. cuz the encouragement is there we just have to be here to get it .. I hope everyone is doing well..

Day 219

Good Morning...

checking in here.. I hope all is well with everyone. Holidays are around the corner.. seems like it was just here.. lol.. I’m still a non smoker.. I’m so glad I came to this site for help.. I’ve hit some forks in the road this past year but have managed to maintain my quit! It’s the only thing I felt I had control over. If anyone is struggling, just take it one day at a time . Breathe.. and enjoy the feeling of freedom...

Have a great day !!  

PS..Where the heck is the cooler weather?!! It’s hot here in Texas! Lol

Good Afternoon. 

I hope everyone is doing well. I have not been on here in a while but I am still not smoking. Thank you all once again for all the support. I know I should be on here more often but life has really thrown a curve ball to me.. I’m surprised I’m not smoking 3 packs a day .. but if anything I can say that I have managed to keep my quit constant.. today I’m coming here asking for prayers for my oldest daughter Dana.. she is currently in the hospital with pneumonia. They are not sure what has caused this but we do know that she was vaping for a couple of months . She’s very sick . We have an infectious disease doctor working with us now and pulmonologist they are wanting to do a broncoscopy to be able to test tissues..  they are treating her currently with antibiotics, steroids, etc. she has an 11 mth old daughter who I’m helping take care of as well with the help of my other daughters.. we just really need prayers right now for all of us.. thank you again ..

Good Morning... Checkkng in.. I haven’t gotten on in a few days .. not staying as close to the site as I should just get so busy I guess .. I’m at 132 days and still doing well. Some stress these days doesn’t let up but yesterday I had a little crave but I know it’s a trigger from stress ,, I think under the circumstances I’ve been doing very good .. thank you again for the support I get on here .. hope everyone is doing well.

Good Evening..

I hope everyone is having a great weekend so is day 112 of my quit .. I’m doing ok.. no cravings lately and I’m glad .. my eating habits haven’t quite leveled out yet and I’ve gained a few pounds.. but I know if I work on it hard enough I can lose it .. but I don’t want to lose my quit that’s for sure... well enjoy the rest of your weekend..



Day 102

Posted by hattonc Jun 20, 2019

Hello.  Hope everyone has had a good Thursday so far. I took my grandson and granddaughter to the library this morning for storytelling.. I love my babies so much .. I remember when my daughters were young I use to take them to the library .. I’m so glad that I don’t smoke anymore.. I would look for excuses not to be able to take them places because I knew I wouldn’t be able to smoke much.. what a terrible life I was leading .. also my daughter is an RN she was telling me today that one of her patients has end stage COPD and needing a lung transplant.. guess what? She is still smoking .. I find that so very sad.. I thank God every day for giving me the strength to quit.. Everyone have a great evening

Need Encouragement!

Posted by hattonc Jun 9, 2019

I came so close to losing my quit tonight.. I was so angry earlier and my go to has always been cigarettes.. I went so far as to drive to a friends house to get one and I turned around and came home. My cup has run over and I need help dealing with things at this point ... I’m not doing well on the inside and I’m surprised I have held my quit this long ., I’m a strong person but feeling defeated these days .. the scary thing also is wondering if everytime life gets out of hand am I always going to have the urge to smoke .. it just saddens me.. sorry my post is not very positive tonight .. but I didn’t give in... 


Day 90!
