Made it 1 year

My last cigarette was on December 24th, 2013. I have now past my year mark. I did use the e-cig for a few months after to curb the cravings, but officially I have made it 1 year. However, switching to a different location for work and having a boss that smokes 10 feet from me at the front door is giving me urges again. Thankfully they are not strong and are easily fought off. So, to those that say they can't quit, you have to WANT to. I said so many times that I "wanted to quit", but the actual desire wasn't there. Your mind is powerful. You can fool many people, but you can't fool yourself. If you don't REALLY want to quit, then you have failed before you try. Decide to quit, put a date on it, and do it.
