Really 11.5 months but I will take it <0.01 Said I could go to 6 months checks I'm not sure I want to do 6 months, oh well! Also on Jan. 2nd it was 1 year since I quit smoking wanted every chance to heal better. And my friend got to come home from the hospital today.
 
It was a pleasure to be there for someone, just as Roger was there for me. This is a great place.
 
Thanks to everyone,   Neal

Neal my friend. what a great report. My Doc said the 1 year mark was a important mark in recovery. Congrats on the big zero. Another special congrats on the smoking. Ex smoker here as well. It has now been 11 years for me. How time flys. Pat and I quit on NYE 2000. I still remember the moment that I crushed my pack of smokes. :)
