HEY, FOLKS. LOOKIT ME GO!

8 months today without even a puff!!! Not one.

The downside is that the smell of smoke has become almost impossible for me to be around. I guess nonsmokers that used to smoke become super sensitive to it or something. That's a drag because our Tuesday night trivia isn't nearly as enjoyable due to the smell.

Oh well.

Good for you, Beth. You need to know that everyone who still smokes hates it whjen you give them a lecture. Before I was finally able to quit used to go out of my way to avoid folks who had smoked as much as I did and had quit-touchy though avoiding my Dad

Congratulations, Beth! You're doing great and I think you inspired me to try after smoking all of my life. I never thought I would ever quit or even thought I would ever want to. My last puff was December 9th, so you quit a few weeks before me. It's amazing what all I have survived without a cigarette in the past almost 8 months. I had to do it with the attitude that I can try, but if I mess up, it's okay and I still have cigarettes in the house available. It was cold turkey, no patches and no pills. I had to know I always had the option. That was what worked for me although I know different people use different methods Good Luck to you Beth in the future and great job, and I know we can breathe much better.

I'm so super impressed. To quit such an addicting (and enjoyable) action is superhuman to me. You are heroes. Congratulations. It speaks so highly of your self-discipline.

Keep going, both of you. I quit, as a 20-30 a day man, on 8th October 1991. I do not ever want to smoke again, but I still wake up some mornings, having been smoking in my dreams, and need to remind myself that it was only a dream. This after over 18 years of non smoking. Keep the faith, people.

Barnie, you beat me by 4 months. I quit on Feb. 11, '92. I too still dream about it My wife still puffs a few but I've never been bothered by the smoke. I can sit in the smoking sections of restaurants, etc. and not notice the puffers much. Those Marlboros in my dreams seem to be working great! LOL

Thanks!!

Yea, I still smoke in my dreams, but not as much.

At least I can't smell it in my dreams.

And, I don't lecture smokers. I hated that from folks who had quit when I was still smoking. I just stay home more.

Friend of mine quit after having a heart attack. Now he has become a big pain in the butt, (pun intended), to all smokers. Nothing more obnoxiously righteous than most ex-smokers. I avoid them more than I do the smokers.

Hear ya Don. I promise I don't say a word when someone is smoking where they are allowed to. However, smoking is still allowed in the bars here, which is hard for me on Tuesdays for NTN trivia. I never smoked in the bar during trivia, never smoked in my house, never sat in smoking sections in restaurants.

However, I never realized how much it stinks. Ewwww.
