I know some of you didnt even know I was gone and thats cool.
However i have many emails asking me where I have been.
Well I have been quitting smoking. Was very difficult to come on the computer and not smoke.
i have written a hub about my 10 days of not smoking so go ahead and have a gander.
I know i am so far behind and i will be working my butt off to get caught up.
Anyways thats all for now.
I applaud you Dale, it's a tough thing to do but a smart thing to do too. I can remember how tough it was for me 14 years ago when I went cold turkey. Best thing I ever did. Congrats and welcome back.
I missed being online but just had to stay away for a while.
I feel good about it now though
It will get better each day....believe it or not.
Hi Dale, welcome back. Nice to hear you're on your way to quitting the evil weed. I guess you've been automatically associating smoking with being on the computer, kind of like a smoke and a coffee at breakfast. Congrats on your progress. Soon you'll be able to taste real food again (so I've heard...I've never smoked).
Hey Dale, welcome back...
A big thank you to everyone. I will make it and you will be seeing me more and more online again, Starting slow and going to get back on as much as before
Welcome back Dale!! Thanks for putting my Think Pink hub on your blog. I have been away for the last month and haven't been able to thank you so thank you and again welcome back
You are very welcome.
I really need to continue updating the blog
Welcome back Dale! Cheers to your quitting -- this is terrific!
Glad to see you back again.
Happy to hear\see that you are having some success with th smoking thing too.
Stay Strong and it will get better.
I have wondered how you were doing, Dale. Glad to know you've stuck with it. I knew you could do it. If I had to bet money on someone doing something they set out to do, it would be you. I know it's been tough. Hang in there.
Well thank you so much, if that isnt a boost of confidence not sure what is.
Today is day 11 and to be honest its almost like I wasnt a smoker. At least for now Im not missing smokes, at least barely missing them. I do get the short lived cravings, but a few secs and they are gone
Good for you Dale. I should have stayed away when I was in the first throes.
I am actually going almost entire days without thinking about it now. (8th month) - So I know you can do it.
Thanks Mark, wow 8 months I am very happy after 11 days, cant imagine how good I will feel after 8 months

It looks like there's loads to learn, a lot of great help too. I think I've already discovered it is useful to have a collection of your own photos of the things you want to write about, so I'm going to start snappy away at every opportunity.

Hello to the hub community! How is everyone? I am doing well, enjoying this lovely weather here in Virginia. Total loner here. Writing is my sanity. I need to write. I stopped writing for a while due to being in a bad head space. But the desire to write has never left. I want to commit to being...
