Don't know where to start or who to respond to first. I'm reading so many discussions this morning of everyone's struggles with life and attempting not to smoke as a result of what life is throwing at us. I can associate with much of what everyone is saying. But the underlying message is that we can live on life's terms with out feeding out addiction, no matter what that addiction may be. I'm only 16 days smoke free and have attempted numerous times to quit. It is a daily struggle not to smoke when we're trying deal with ongoing issues in our lives and when those unexpected stressers hit you in the face when you least expect it. And then there are those cigarettes I also used to reward my self. Not sure which I miss the most.
Wishing all of us success on this journey.
