due to cravings but I'm making it.

I quit 15 years ago. Best thing I ever did for myself.

It gets easier and easier.

I quit smoking at 22 after 7 years of smoking. Used to smke between every class in highschool- don't know how I got away with it. I wish that someone had stopped me because I had such a hard time quitting. Now, I still have craving every once in a while even though it has been 9 years since I quit.
It is very hard to quit, but very worth it!

Christina,

Would you mind tightening up your signature a bit? We're supposed to keep our signatures to 10 lines or less. I don't mind so much, but other mods and the Admin do.

Thank you thank you,
