      This is very great achievement in fact. I too had left smoking 15 years when i was 23 years old. I know well how tougher is it to quit smoking. I consider it as achievement. Great Dale!

    Cngratulations Dale! I almost fell off the wagon, but thought of you. I was far from home and a long drive ahead, no cell phone or internet to keep me sane. Driving was always a trigger for me. I thought of you and the forum posts, the hubs that you wrote. I thought of how long ago you planned you quit and the fact that I said I would quit too... You are not in this alone, really. Every time I think I might go back, I think of you and Lorlie, and the others here who have quit or are trying to quit too.

    I didn't have any doubt you could do it.

    Throughout the process - what happened that was unexpected?
    Were there any surprises along the way?
