I really like reading people’s blog it gives me motivation and inspiration to really want to stop. For some reason this is really helping me reading people’s stories, and how far everyone has come. I will be so happy to pass a week smoke free. Good luck to myself.;
Kia ora everyone!
So cool to see everybody posting today! Congratulations to all the new and old quitters I hope you have all had a fabulous world smoke free day.

It doesn't seem much compared with the amazing stats updates on here today but I'm feeling pretty proud to be a part of this special day. Thanks for all the inspiration and support thus far. Awesome not to have to find a sheltered spot for a smoke in this nasty weather.
I have been smokefree for three days today is my fourth day. I have realized my smoking is emotional. When I feel down I drink, smoke pot and consequently smoke cigarettes. I need to think next time I get down that the combo of those three is not a solution and makes things much worse . It is very much a downward spiral. This is my first blog and I feel sick and nervous about getting through my next craving but I will do my best and hope joining Quitline will will help me in my pursuit to be smokefree.
When I was committed to feeding this addiction-feels like a hundred years ago(another song!) WSD was the 'prickle day'
C'mon-You all know how that is!
The day when We say-oh, stuff off, these do-gooders shoveling their ideas at Me! How dare they-they don't know Me, anyway-that's Their problem, not mine! You know, You remember...
Only these weren't Our thoughts...eh?
These came directly from Our addiction...
I met a lady Yesterday, whom tells me, she likes smoking. Then tells Me, her EX hammered home how much he hated her smoking, then tells Me, the new man in her life, smokes, too. Almost a justification, eh?! Sad...
This year, on WSD I will be standing Proud with my fat number 7 out in front of me!
I will be posting my stats & I'm hoping You all will, too (including our Newbies-Your days are as important as the 'oldies')
I'm hoping for a stats count up-see if We can't 'break the bank!'
Congratulations all, as Nana22 say

So Ive seen the light (pun intended). This morning I was asked what I would change if I could. My addiction to smoking was at the top of the list so I took action immediately and here I am. I think becoming part of this community is the best move for me at the moment. I look forward to reading everyone's story's. Kia kaha e whanau ma

this is it for me, my tour as a angel has expired due to lack of response.
as i was just trying to illuminate my chances of smoking begining with finding my errors, i found that i was procrastinated to the side as people knew who i was and spectated no support for a person like me and thats not paranoia as you know who you are, for all you try hards keep up the good work and remember this site is for challenging errors, To help prevent smoking cessations and not a hook-up line for chit chat about tomorrows party and who to discrimanate next (thats what face-book is there for), the subsidy to this site is prevention raising awareness and recovery for those who find disability in their lives as i did, take caution for your next option will be and is a hiding.
see you later alligators.
Today will be my last day smoking as much as I do, I have tried various ways to stop but it haven't been successful I have found that stress and my anger causes me to release to the cig. Sometimes I feel like it helps me when I have my anxiety issues going on but that was just and excuse. I know this journey is going to be very hard mainly because I am going on a diet as well but this will be an ultimate goal that I can't wait to succeed!!! Its not easy but it won't be impossible
