Melanie M On August 1 my hubby and I will both be two moths quit smoking! Feeling great and after 6 years of smoking I will never ever go back to it!
Chad H It's been one year for me. I stopped a month before the birth of my daughter. It's not fair for we to be exposed to it. She didn't ask for it.
Kaimi L This challenge is a little off.. it should have at least a time frame. I think it would be more encouraging for those of us who are actually addicted.. then once the time frame is up we should have gone through the withdrawal symptoms enough to finally say we are officially no longer any type of smoker. And that includes social smoking.
Irene C Update.... now 102 days smoke free! Not sure when I can call the challenge complete, but so far so good, no longing, do not miss them one bit!
Why not ask for some advice from other Challenge takers, or read some of the Challenge guides first?OK, I'll keep working at it!
