I haven't been here for a long time, but have been getting some emails lately from this group, so decided to come on the site again and let you all know my progress over the years. I quit in 2008...almost 10 years ago. I probably wouldn't have made it if it weren't for this site. Whenever I would have a bad craving, I would come on here and blog or read someone else's. Anyway, I was successful and just wanted you all to know that it is possible. I know at the time when I first quit, I used to really envy the ones who had been quit a year or more, thinking how could I ever do it, but with the encouragement from this support group, I made it. It will be 10 years Sept. 11. Also, it helped to learn everything I could about what smoking really does to you physically and mentally and if you look at it logically, why would anyone want to do all that to their body?
