Re: Hi everyone!

[QUOTE=Skimmer;2823027]Wow! Good for you Mythica! What an inspiring story and thanks for sharing your experience with us. I am a newbie quitter - I'm 3 days into my quit - and it's great to hear everyone's story, how, why, what they experienced when they quit. 6months is a great milestone for you! You should treat yourself to something really special - like $1,000 shopping spree! HA!

Congrats! :blob_fire[/QUOTE]

Thank you, Skimmer. *hug* I wish you the best! Every single time you think of a cigarette and pass it up, your winning. Just don't give up. Just think of those damn cigarette companies getting rich off your potential death from smoking.

I started smoking when I was 13 years old. I just turned 23 in Feb. so I smoked for almost ten years. I had been wanting to quit smoking for a couple years before I actually did. My boyfriend still smokes and while he supports me - nobody else outside my two best friends do. In quiting, a saw some people in a whole new light. Quiting is a huge deal - it effects more than your lungs. I have been eating better and taking better care of myself and it all started because I quit smoking.

[QUOTE=wailana;2823045][FONT="Georgia"][SIZE="4"][COLOR="Navy"]That's so awesome...6 months. Today I'm 18 days smoke/nicotine free. Please reply to posts that you see on the board. You must have some much information and experiences during your quit time. It's been so helpful and inspirational when I read other people's struggles and success. Thanks so much for posting!!:wave: [/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT][/QUOTE]

Congrats, wailana! I'm so proud of you. I'll try and reply to some posts. Though I think other posters around here have it going on. Everyone is so nice and supportive.

[QUOTE=Kevin__;2823077]WOW!!! That's really fantastic!!! I dream of the day when I have forgotten it's been six months and I don't think about it any more.

Thanks for the inspiration!!!

You'll get there, Kevin.:D
Don't get me wrong, sometimes when I see a cigarette, I remember how much I loved the taste of them but it passes just as quickly as the thought emerged. I think that I'll always remember that. It doesn't make you weak or mean you're going to start smoking again. However, when I smell them it makes me dizzy. I hate the smell of them. I hugged a friend of mine the other day and she ranked. I can't believe I use to smell like that and I didn't even know it!:eek: My nose is like uber powered now. lol.
