Still quit today at 56.

Yea Breath, for me anyways my 40th was a turning point, never been more determined to quit for good and I will quit for good. If I achieve what you have done I'll be giving myself a pat on the back and a beer or two lol

This is a dumb request but can I ask if anyone who I replied to can actually see my reply to them and that I'm doing this correctly - please forgive my ignorance 👍

Hi and welcome to QSMB, Millo!  :grin:  Read the newbie package here, then read it again!

 

https://www.quitsmok...newbie-package/

 

Some very helpful info....

Congrats on the one week quit!

 

:groupwave:  :groupwave:  :groupwave:  :groupwave:

 PS When you click on the 'quote' function, in response to someone...did you know you can enter your reply in the same window as the quote....right now it seems like you are posting a "quote", then a separate response to that quote. This is 2 posts when it could just as well be 1 post!This just makes it harder to follow the thread....cuz there are so many "extra posts" !  :shock:

You got the right attitude, Millo!  I quit after I turned 39 and, like you, decided I did not want to go into my 40's as a smoker.

 

Stick close to this site.  It really helped me and can help you quit for good as well.

Hi Millo,
Welcome aboard, this forum is fantastic for support. There are many super individuals willing to help, listen, share, compare and just be around if need be. Make sure to really go through the newbie package as it has some great stuff in it. And I can read all of your replies, so I am betting so can the people that you have replied to.

Congrats on the quit! It is one of the best decisions you will ever make for yourself.

welcome, Millo! Great decision and great job with stopping smoking. I am not an avid forum user either, but here I've been active. it really does help to quit when you're not alone, when your doubts and questions are understood, when others know what you're talking about and supporting you. Keep on posting!
