I haven't posted since back in March due to computer access issues but when I logged on and recognized many names still here it was very comforting!! I am so glad to see all who have stayed the course and very, very happy for you!! I have also stayed the course though it hasn't always been pretty- there are still days I really want a cigarette and dwell on the "only one" crap but there are many more days I don't even think about it. I've gained a lot of weight which is more a result of inactivity than overeating and I do know what I have to do- getting back to work will pretty much fix that problem (I'm a server)! Overall, I am incredibly proud of myself because I had some unbelievably dark days that I never expected and I stuck with it when in past quits I caved in much sooner. I occasionally have to remind myself that it was a 36 year habit that took longer than 72 hours worth of nicotine withdrawal to overcome. I've gone thru the 4 seasons which each bring their own triggers and I have come through. And I have also found out that no one is really that impressed with my quit anymore though I'm sure I'll be congratulated on my one-year anniversary which I will inform everyone within earshot about when it arrives! I'm planning on entering that penthouse in October in much improved all-around health and look forward to seeing many of you there!!
