Thanks guys, I am so happy that I made it. I used to stare at the quit smoking time line and look at the five year mark where it lists some major health benefits and wonder if I would make it.
Now it is free and easy and I do not want the nicotine any more. I think it is just saying nope minute by minute, hour by hour, day by day, dismissing the urge until it is more natural to be a nonsmoker than a smoker. For me this took over a year although the urge grew fainter as the first year went by.
Remember. Smoking us yucky. Meow
