Suggestion, if you haven't tried it. Take a few hard drags off a pencil, ball point pen, whatever is cigarette size when the urge hits. Surprisingly, it works. I guess they still make the fake plastic cigs, but I used a pencil, and it has been 20 great years! We pullin for ya!

Good Morning :-) Ron, and everyone...
I woke up at 10!! went to bed late, turned on the tv to watch my soap which they moved from 2pm to 11:30pm!!! at 12:30am I wasn't sleepy yet so I watch some more tv, mute, only reading captions:-) gotta keep quiet you know..
Anyway..I'm doing good. I tell myself "you quit, smoked your last one two days ago.." that's it.
I don't walk around whinnying and feeling sorry for myself. But..just found out that having friends pulling for me gives me that extra strength..or something like that:-)

Now down from the podium..

You all have a great day!

Huh? Did I miss something? I gather by the comments that Patria is trying to quit smoking. Good Luck Patria, I need to do that someday too : )

I saw a movie one time where Dick van Dyke was a preacher and quit smoking. I don't remember the name of it but I hope ye did so youll know what I'm talking about.

Poor ole Gerrit.

Didn't see that movie..
So far so good though. She made it through day one! I removed the ashtrays, put the cigarettes in my truck and stopped smoking in the house.
She's gonna make it. Like toolman said, when she puts her mind to something she can do it.

The movie was about an entire town that stood to get a lot of money if everyone in the town quit smoking for a specified period of time. As I recall, it was what it was suppossed to be, a very funny movie.........gfp

Wow, an entire town quitting smoking.. Yweah I guess It was a funny movie. Dick van Dyke wasn't doing a lot of serious movies as far as I remember.

Still wonder wondering what Burr meant with "poor ole Gerrit" in connection to the movie though..
