Lala, that's GREAT! YAY, for you, indeed! 2 months is wonderful! You are definitely a NON-SMOKER now! I am so glad to hear how good your hubby is doing, too!

Your trip sounds like it was fantastic. I showed my husband all the information and told him that I would love to go there, too. Maybe some day. I am glad that you gave me more information about how they are set up and actually owned. That is pretty cool! It's a good idea, too! It would be nice to have enought money to build a big place on a desirable spot for tourists, that could have 2 or 3 rental units (or condos) that would bring in extra income. That would be divine to live in a place like that AND make money to help pay for it, too.

I'm glad that ya'll had a great time! Vacations are always TOO short. At least you have another one to look forward to in a few more months. smile Lucky you!! laugh

Take care of yourself and keep up the good work with all your CLEAN AIR!

Trish

Sue, how are things working out for you? Are you still spending time on yourself? How about taking time to smell the flowers and watch the birds? Things really do seem different without cigarettes to dull our senses, don't they?

Has your boyfriend finished his job away from home yet? How much longer will he be gone?

Take care of yourself and get some rest. Do some deep breathing exercises to make your lungs feel better and remember that I am thinking of you and praying for you. God bless you, Sue! smile

And now it's November 13th.. Ive been smoke free not even one single puff for just about 5 1/2 months!!! WOW! It feels like I was never a smoker! Sometimes I do miss it but generally it's not even a thought. It's amazing how easy it was this time.

Hubby is still not smoking either its been since our anniversary, July 22nd. So I guess that's 3 1/2 months! YAY FOR US!!!!

Any other successful non smokers here?!

Ohmigosh, Laura! I haven't seen this thread in ages. I am so very happy for you and your husband! Don't you feel like the coolest person ever! LOL

I made it to the 18 month anniversary and I can't tell you how much it helps in so many ways. I think "I quit smoking, I can do anything!"

I created a lens on squidoo about it--you know, the Great American Smokeout is coming soon, too. So, take a look at my How 2 Quit Smoking lens and let me know what you think--leave a comment at the bottom with what helped you!

I know I've become one of those horrible ex-smokers, but I just want everyone to know they can do it, too!

Congratulations again, Laura--it is a big deal and you should be proud of yourself!

Thanks Deborah!

It's amazing how after you quit your sense of taste and smell are heightened! I can hardly stand the smell of cigarettes now.. before I never noticed it but man does it stink! We have some freinds who smoke in their house and everytime we come home, we can smell it on ourselves! It's sooo awful! It's interesting too how after you quit, you sometimes feel the need to help others quit! Or you become one of those people who absolutely HATES being around it!

I've told many people.. my parents and friends included, that it really isn't that hard. I honestly think that we MAKE seem harder than it is. Granted, it isn't very pleasant, and it's NOT easy... but it's not impossible either.

I don't think you have to "be ready" ... when are you ever ready anyways? What does that mean? I LOVED smoking.. it was relaxing and it was something to do and it was a social thing... I didn't really want to give it up either, but I knew that it was the best thing to do. There's no arguing that it's not good for you... it's horrible! And I decided to care about myself. That's why I quit. I think that's where people get stuck with quitting... We plan to quit and we convince ourselves that we are ready and we pick a date but when that day rolls around we come up with excuses why one more day or one more week is ok. I don't believe we are ever "ready". We just have to care enough to stop. I plan on becoming a mother in a few years and I didn't want to have bad health and I didn't want to have my future kids exposed to that.. especially by me. And I think that my husband realized that too and saw that if I could do it, he could too.

It is wonderful what you have accomplished. How is your mom doing? I remember you told me she was going to quit also.
