Hey...when you go to the SuperAmerica, get a lottery ticket instead of smokes.

And drink more.

I guess it's over between us, then.



I seriously need willpower. Although I have cut down - a lot! When some of life's stresses dissipate in the next month, I plan to give it another go.

Congrats! Keep letting us know how you're doing. Stories like yours inspire me.

Congrats.

You mean to tell me you can go to a bar in Wisconsin and not smoke? I thought I was the only one.

actually, Appleton just passed a smoking ban. DePere(suburb of Green Bay) might also.

i'd personally love it. then when my band starts playing again, i won't lose my voice by midnight like i usually do.

You can do it, Mikal--we're all rooting for you!

Just think of your guitar...your voice...not having your lungs rot away from cancer...

I wish they would pass a ban here in Milwaukee.

that stirred my memory; in 2000, I had surgery(unrelated to smoking); following the doctor's exploratory, he told me during post-op that my lungs were "very pink and healthy!" that's incentive enough for me! continued good luck to you.

to everyone who is quitting/has quit smoking

You've done a great thing for yourself and also your family and people who care about you.

You can do it, Cookie!

My mom quit over 14 years ago and she's convinced it's the best thing she's ever done (besides having me, of course ).

Smart move. I smoked my last butt on 1 February, 1999 - cooooold turkey.

You will have to substitute. I chew a toothpick or two after a large meal. Upped the chocolate intake, and am always looking for excuses to walk/get out/do shit. Don't sit still.

When drinking, think of the cleansing, cooling effect the beers are having on you - and how a dirty nasty cig will spoil it. Your lungs are healing rapidly. Don't blow it.

Best of luck
