    Yes, congratulations! I, too, grew up in second hand smoke. Thank you for giving up such a bad habit. :)

    1979--that pretty much dates me, doesn't it? A vicious addiction. I still occasionally think about it, but I will never, never, never smoke again!!! Congratulations on making this change in your life!

    I forever bless my dear little hillbilly Grandma, who taught me the hard way to not smoke. Never, ever did, even though she herself smoked cigarettes and a pipe all her life.

    Once when a cousin and I (both about 10 years old) were playing calmly together (a rare thing for us) she came up to us and out of the blue ordered us to never, EVER start smoking corn husks and corn silks. We agreed solemnly, and of course the minute she left we hied ourselves to the corn field and got some dried silks and half dry husks and made us some neat ciggies. We stole a match and set out behind the chicken house to savor the marvelous act of smoking like the grown ups did. Of course we started barfing up our last night's supper, and ran to the house for sympathy and medicine. All hard hearted Grandma would do for us was make us clean up the vomit from the kitchen steps, which brought on more of the heaves. If you have never done anything like that, you've missed one of life's best lessons in self control when next coming face to face with a cigarette.

    I have never, ever been tempted to smoke in my life, and a conversation to my cousin a few years ago he said that he was also an abstainer. Gag. Snort. Gulp.

    Congratulations. I'm doing the happy dance for you. I gave up this disgusting habit 44 years ago when I started dating my now husband. Back then, we sat next to the driver when we went out on a date. (What seat belts?) He leaned over and quickly gave me a little kiss on the cheek and said, "you smell wonderful, not all smoky like most girls". I never smoked again. He still thinks I smell good!

    Congrats to you for completing such a hard task. :)
    I quit 11-4-08. Best thing I ever did. Once I made my mind up to do it, it wasn't near as hard as it had been the hundred times before that I failed.

    I was brought up with both my parents being heavy smokers. I cannot tell you how miserable my brothers and I were in a small house during a Colorado winter or driving in the car. My three brothers and I have asthma due to it. My mom died of lung cancer and up until her last day, my dad would hold her up in a sitting position and help her smoke. It just killed us kids to watch. You have blessed your family more than you will ever know.

    I quit my two-pack-a-day habit on July 19th 1997. I never had one since that day.

    Congratulations. You did it the hard way, in spite of many chemicals put in tobacco to make them addictive.

    You, ALL of you, have my admiration for your strength of mind to quit something with such a strong hold on the human body.
