I learned N.O.P.E. & so much more right here!

Blog Post created by MarilynH on Jan 29, 2021

When I first came here a little over six and a half years ago I didn't know what N.O.P.E. meant or any of the mantras BUT thankfully this awesome Ex community Explained what they were and suggested that I read everything that I could because it would help which I did and yes the more I read the more I learned, N.O.P.E ~ Not One Puff Ever ~ N.M.W ~ No Matter What ~ N.E.F ~ Never Ever Forget ~ S.I.N.A.O ~ Smoking Is Not An Option.....I learned so much from this community ~ keep them away from your face and the only way out is through! I learned the word DOABLE ~ as difficult as quitting smoking is it's definitely DOABLE ~ there's many more mantras and sayings that I've missed please add them. I was playing around with words a couple years ago and came up with ~ D.E.B.S ~ Decide Educate Believe Succeed ~ I doubt that I would've used it a second time BUT Deena Deena-A.-Yenni really liked it so I use it every so often thanks to her we miss you Deena.

I'll add another saying which is Dales, along with a couple more above that's also his...I don't do that anymore!!!!

I used to yell out loud that I don't smoke anymore that I don't do that anymore! It works!
