A Month's Victory

I think I became a member of this site after 1 week victory over cigarettes. I was going through a hard time with my quit and decided I needed some help. I am very thankful I found this site. I have learned some critical principles here that has helped me survive and make staying quit easier for me. N.O.P.E. I will not settle for even one puff, it will only lead to more. I keep my list in my pocket why I stopped, the four that lead the list, Deval, Dayneah, Devanaire and Michael: My wife and kids. Smoking does not make any situation better: stress, pain, boredom, no situation, they still will be there after you smoke. Now I laugh at the face of the little voices in my head telling to smoke. Actually now they are much less. Sometimes they do occur when you least expected but I still laugh. Life is much better without cigarettes, and I am proud to say am a member of TEAM N.O.P.E and will continue to share a post in hope that someone else would be encourage to quit and STAY QUIT. Thank you so much team, I honestly do not think I could have stayed quit this long without you.
