n-o-s-m-o-k-i-n-g noooooooo smoking

Today is nine months since I've had a cigarette.

I just need to remind myself every once in a while that I was able to accomplish that.

Especially on days like today, when a certain offspring has made me want to smoke 40 cigarettes at the same time while drinking a pint of Jack Daniels.

Nine months. I could have had a baby since my last cigarette.


I just slapped myself upside the head.


That's a huge accomplishment. Congratulations!

Well done Michele puffs Parliment well done indeed.

God damn, Michele. Well done. I hope one day soon I'll have enough willpower to quit. I just can't stop killing those hobos.

Good job!

Friday was one month without a cigarette for me.

Hell has a lock on the next Winter Olympics.

For that I think you deserve a cigarette.

Yay Michele!

"I haven't smoked for 3 weeks, 3 days and 17 hours, saving 593.49 cigarettes and $83.08."

A nifty Firefox extenstion pastes that in there for me. Once I got past the excrutiating insomnia and muscle jerks, I was OK. Wellbutrin helps enormously with the desire to smoke. I just don't want to.

I can do this. I really can! Yay me too!

For thatyou deserve a cigarette!

Once was "haha funny"

Twice means you're a cock.



thank you for being an inspiration to those of us who followed suit...

Today is eight months for me!!

Yeah us!!!

Good on ya, M. Good on ya.

Congrat's Michele.

You are a bigger person than I. I have only been smoking for crap 7 years.

I just calculated that seven. It has been a lot longer than I thought.

Any hints on quitting?

I have tried the patch, but ended up getting addicted to that. The high dose gives you more nicotine than a normal day of smoking.


Congratulations. And anyone who makes a smoking comment deserves a nice swift kick in the pack.

First step in quitting:

Make sure that you want to quit.

My motivation was: Do I want the cigarettes to control me? That want to smoke, that need to smoke; that's the control they get over you over the years. You gotta WANT to get out from underneath that control MORE than wanting the cigarette itself.

Congratulations, Michele, for taking control of your life. It is very difficult to do.

Four years for me on the 19th. I would still enjoy a cigarette if I dragged on one.

Yay you! Keep up the good work!

Tips on quitting - red the book "The Easy Way To Stop Smoking." 6 months smoke free for me.

Cigarettes have tar, so in 9 months you'd have a ...

Never mind.

Congratulations, Michele. [pats her on the back] That is doing a hard thing, and you should be proud of yourself.

Congratulations--I hope you continue to give us updates on how long it's been!

As an aside--what's keeping you from drinking that pint of Jack Daniels?
