2 weeks today Oh My! I never thought I would make it a day let alone two weeks. you guys have been amazing. I never thought about quitting before, in my life until one night laying in bed and a voice rang out in my head saying you need to quit smoking. Mind you I do not hear voices, I do not have that disability not yet anyway. However, something rang true in me that night and I knew that I needed to quit smoking, and I would do whatever it took to get me there and no matter how many times it took I was going to beat this thing called addiction to nicotine. I needed a lot of help if I was going to do this though and I knew it wasn't going to be easy; my first try, I went cold turkey and I did good for 5 days and on the 6th day I caved and my brain told me no more "I want nicotine and I am going to have it and I don't care how you feel about it!" That was the emotion that came across because the only support I had was coming in the occasional form of Facebook, family, and friends. Now let me explain; Facebook is whenever you post stuff in one large group or you have a smaller chat group going then you ask for support if you feel comfortable (which I did not); the family thing; all I have left is my mother and she was once a smoker and now all she does is nag at me about quitting, and that she is not going to praise me until I have months under my belt and doesn't remember how hard it was to kick the nicotine habit. Friends; I barely have any that don't smoke that can encourage me to not smoke and the guy that I live with smokes, so I am doing this all on my own.

That is where you all come in and now the new facebook group that is somewhat just like this. it has the pledge, and I want to do the freedom train and really get it going on facebook so it is a partner to you all and people have something they can really count on like I count on you guys here. I am not the one that started it there; however, I believe in the idea and will help it grow there and help it do good things and stay here for my main support always and forever.
