Hi Pat,
 It sounds like an awful lot has happened in your life in the 12 years since you quit smoking. Plenty of opportunity's to test your willpower too that's for sure. It's great to hear that being a quitter has not changed though.  Stay the course and enjoy your freedom from the addiction!
Stay strong.
 
Not One Puff Ever

It's almost impossible to believe that 12 years ago today I began my new life as a non smoker. It's truly been an epic journey and I'm so grateful to have taken the nicodemon 👹 by the horns and wrestled it to the ground with the knowledge and support I was given right here at SSC. I've come a long, long way and grown a lot as a human being in the last 12 years. I've been orphaned, separated, widowed, loved and lost and found myself again, gone back to school, made a new career, made mistakes, become a grandma 3 times, celebrated life, sorrowed for those who've passed, taken trips, broken hips, had a concussion, gained/lost those smokers pounds, been lost in the joy I call the wilderness, exercised and plan to dance my way back to a healthy life as my new hip heals.....all without one single puff. I couldn't have done it without the generous support of so many wonderful people here at SSC. Some have kept in touch and others have vanished into the nonsmoking mist, but I hope you're all sweet smelling quitters enjoying this delicious freedom from addiction. For all those who are here actively quitting, hang in there...there really is a fulfilling, peaceful, smoke-free future waiting for you just around the corner. Honestly, if I could do it, so can you! Knowledge I learned here was the key I found that set me free from my addiction! Thank you once again everyone at SSC. Pat

N.O.P.E.
