Heh. Howdy! I quit in 2018 also. January 5 actually. It’s great to hear the words come out of my mouth that I’m going on five years quit. It’s crazy. I never would’ve ever thunk it. This place was invaluable to me. I spent a lot of time here in the early days. These days about the only time I ever think about a cigarette as when I get on here LOL. But it’s OK. It always goes away. The urge, it always, goes away!
For me, I wanted to quit on my terms. Not when the doctor told me that I need to quit with tubes running in and out of my chest.
I still feel good today. Active and I work hard. My wife still smokes. I encourage her every day but she’s just not ready. I hope she makes it until the time she is ready. She borderline gets angry with me when I try to speak with her about it. She just changes the subject.
I remember… Sounds like the addiction talking, right? It is.
I don’t post much, actually I don’t visit as much as I used to. I suppose smoking is further in the back of my mind then I think. Good thing…
