Well after about a week of quitters flu I am feeling better. Ears and throat still a little tender but nothing like they were. I was able to sleep almost all night. Thank you ex'ers for the love tough and other wise. For the caring and support. I know I will always have to be mindful that it's easy to pick up that cig but also easy to remember the struggle of the last week. I am feeling more confident and happy everyday I take the pledge. It helps me to recommit everyday. To know if I chose to get a cig I am breaking the chain of pledger. I take my pledge seriously and never want to break it. Btw my name is Suzy but stringbean is good too.
