Good for you Nancy!!  On this date....but it was in 1976.....I smoked my very last cigarette.  I had just gotten a new pack that I paid 51 CENTS for.....and I decided I was done.....it just didn't taste good any more.....so I threw the whole pack in the trash can, and I NEVER once put another one in my mouth!  I said a lot of prayers, and chewed on a lot of pencils; but I never gave in to the craving. But, even after 35 years, I still get a craving every once in awhile!  Again, good for you Nancy.  Hang in there.....it's worth it!!

Somebody should start an "I  Quit Smoking" post.  I bet there are lots of us quitters out there.

No holiday for me.  But it was a quiet day with so many places closed.  Of course we will get double mail tomorrow.  Frown

Darla M. - I quit smoking about 35 years ago, and I too still get cravings. Sometimes when I walk past someone smoking and get a whiff of the cigarette, I really want to have one. But of course, I won't ever start smoking again. It was too difficult to quit!!!

Congrats to everyone who quit smoking!  My dad couldn't quit
smoking until he had heart failure in a restaurant while on
vacation in Texas.  He never smoked again but did tell me that
whenever he was close to someone who was smoking, he
would lean in a little closer just to smell it.

I did that too ---- If I'd see some smokers gathered outside a door, I'd head there and stand too close to strangers. Oh, how I loved that smell.    Now I am alarmed by the smell............. did I used to smell like that ?!!?
But I still reach for one ever so often   I'm so glad one isn't there
