    Hello, my dear friends:
    Well, it's Sunday morning and I have been able to refrain from smoking thus far. I don't see myself smoking for the rest of this day or for many days to come, if possible. I watched my friend as she smoked and I didn't like the smell nor did I like the lingering odour of the cigarette in the air or even on my own clothes.
    Your kind words and support have really kept me going because I can write this and know I am being honest and strong. Each and every hint was helpful to remember, if not to use.
    I was particularly successful in remembering that I can have power over what my hands are doing.
    And most importantly, I can come home from this weekend away and be truthful to my husband and 'smoking' sponsor, that I was smoke free.

    Congrats. I'm sure it was very hard at times.

    You are a strong woman, congratulations. Now if you can get your friend to quit (I wrote quilt by mistake!) - that would be awesome. Maybe she will follow your example.

    Keep staying strong. You can do it!

    It's the best feeling I have ever had knowing I beat the smoking addiction. I never thought I could. It was hard but as my grandmother told me no one ever died from smoking withdrawal so get over it and show some backbone about it. She believed everyone found the way to do what they really wanted to do and only had excuses for not doing what they didn't want to. Especially her grand kids. LOL. I quit when one day years ago when I saw an elderly lady smoking with a baby n her lap. I thought how sad and ignorant that looked. It hit me I could be that lady one day. I almost cried I felt so stupid and ashamed of myself for smoking.
