I quit smoking the cigarettes 3 years ago today. It was election night and my daughter's birthday.

Not a day goes by that I don't wish I could smoke, but every day I say "no" and keep moving.

I'm totally proud of a fellow quitter;)

It does get easier - though it took some years.

I was zapping tonight and there was an old movie with a sexed up Kathleen Turner dragging on a cigarette and it looked SO GOOD. And then I changed the channel.

Fantastic!

I remember when I used to think it was bad to say no to myself. Now I wish I could do it more and am getting better at it. It's hard sometimes, but it feels good.

Congratulations woman.

The day I quit, the election had just been stolen - again - and I thought, Big Tobacco wants me to smoke their cigarettes so Big Pharma can kill me with their "treatments" later. It was an illuminating moment, realizing that all the politicians and killing industries are in it together, and that it's all part of the bread and circuses we're encouraged to partake in every moment of every day.

TBH, some days that reminder is all that gets me through. Not it's bad for me or remember the kids or I'd be a loser for starting again after quitting for so long, but... I'd be doing exactly what those bastards want me to do. !!!!

You sound great - the to-do list sounds so fresh and fall-ish. It's lovely here - maybe I'll get my ass out int the garden myself...
