    9 Days And Counting

    I quit nine days ago with the help of the patch. This is my 3d time quitting after smoking for 45 years, but for some reason it feels right this time.I realize it's too early to say I'm a non smoker, but that is my goal.

    Quit Again...

    Today is day one.  I started smoking again about 3 weeks ago, after a month of not smoking.  This has been my pattern for years.  I quit once for 14 months, only to crash and burn for the next two years.  So, here I go again.  I feel amazing today because...
