I am very fortunate, except for a little smoke and ash a couple of days ago which is no big deal. The fire nearest to me is 30 miles away and they seem to be getting a handle on things.

 

Marcie and others I hope will check in.

 

Northern Cal is where the horrible devastation is taking place and may be weeks or months before that fire is contained.

 

 

Thanks for your concern though. :)

I'm worried about Marcie and our northern California folks too :( I'm on the central coast of California so no fires here, we're very lucky...

Things began to get better when I realized I would remain quit even if things never got any better.

Being successful doesn't mean that you'll never GET to smoke again. It means that you'll never HAVE to smoke again.

I'm fine, not close to the fires.  I did go a bit north yesterday to Palo Alto and the smoke was terrible, eyes watering, everyone wearing masks.  Palo Alto is nowhere close to these fires, so that's just an example of how horrible it must be in the vicinity .  Jim is also north end of the state.  I hope he is well.

 

Thanks for thinking of me  :bigarmhug:  :bigarmhug:

Good here too, So cal fire flames have been visible at night from my house even though they are 20 miles south. I hope the northern fires are controlled soon or at least the main man could send some rains that way and help.

Nov 6, 2011 I decided " I had enough with this sh*t "

I quit because I just got tired of the life under a rock, dark and with not enough air to breathe waiting for the day to get crushed!

Alcohol to a quit is like Kryptonite to Superman

Stop, Think and then React. Not React,Stop and then Think

Practice does not make it perfect, makes it permanent. Practice the right things!

Quitting is by far the best decision for the rest of your life.

If a Doctor gives you 6 months to live, would you start living after the first three? Quit now!

" I am a puff away form a pack a day"

Once you stop puffing or having Nicotine in any form, then and only then your symptoms will stop.

I quit with a frozen turkey. Once I felt comfortable with my quit,  I ate it.

Life is such a good teacher, that if you don't learn the lesson it will repeat it to you.

Wow Frank, 20 miles sounds mighty close for comfort for me.

Please be careful...

Please be careful...

There are two mountain ranges with about 20 miles of valley in between. I live at the base of the northern one and the recent fires were on the south.  Feeling real bad though for all the people affected by fires, floods, earthquakes  and hurricanes all over the map this year.
