Congrats! You can do it. I smoked for over 20 years and quit. No small feat, I know it's hard, but it gets much easier. It's been 30 years since I quit and thank God that I did it!

It's wonderful you have so long without a cigarette. It is a horrible addiction. Lucky you winning a beautiful piece of Debbie's work. She is so generous. The mug rug swap should be a lot of fun. The first step back into anything is always the hardest and you did that already!

GRATS!!!! on 2 months smoke free you can do it. I was hesitant to join after a bad swap in the summer but I love fall and think I need to do this to get past the summer bad swap. Have lots of fall fabrics ...now to decide what to do.

Congratulations on your two-month anniversary! Before you know it you'll be at one year, and five years, and ten years, and you'll be wondering how you ever smoked to begin with :) And now you have all of that extra money that you're not spending on cigarettes and you can spend it on fabric instead! lol

Congratulations! Keep it up. Hugs to you for even trying. I also was a long time smoker - nearly 18 years. I have been 100% smoke free for almost 5 years now. It was the best thing I ever did for myself. I now get severely nauseous when I smell cigarette smoke.
Congrats on winning that quilt too. I'm sure it's beautiful and very special.

Congratulations! Two months is a triumpth! Your lungs are probably doing the happy dance right now... Yay...

You can do this....when you have bad days, come here... You will get lots of encouraging hugs.

Not to scare you, but to remind you how important it is to win this battle.... My husband, of 45 years, begam smoking when he was thirteen.... It was the cool thing to do, way back in the day..... He is 73 now, and is in end stage COPD. he has been on oxygen 24/7 for the past two years.

I watch....and listen to him struggle just to breathe.... He gets a little worse every day. He shakes so hard he can't carry a plate of food.... He is only comfortable at all, when seated. He can't go for walks with me, and has had to give up his beloved fishing. He has wanted so badly to take the boys fishing this summer, but it was impossible. He can't carry groceries into the house, and it wears him out to bend over to pick something up from the floor. Getting into my little red Focus is a major deal, so he has to sit a while before he can drive.

the vigorous, active man I knew, who could work rings around any man, is gone. In his place is a man who struggles to take every breath. In spite of it all, he does most if our laundry.... It wears him out, but he does it.

Sorry to ramble on about a decidedly gloomy, gruesome topic, but I want you to double your resolve to win this battle, so you can win the war.
