Hi atp, optimist and justfortoday,
Thank you for your kind words and good wishes. It makes me feel good to hear that I was of some help to you as you tried to quit smoking. We all know how difficult it is to do. I am forever grateful for this wonderful, caring community. Our members helped me to quit, and I want to reach out to others to help them in turn.
And wimporswim, you were my extraordinary quit buddy. I remember times when I was tempted to give in, but I held on because I knew that you were holding on, and we were in this together. I think I cared as much about your quit as I did about my own. And I am proud of us both for kicking the habit. What an amazing accomplishment.
Even though my cancer has metastasized, I am not going to give up. I will continue to fight so that I can enjoy life for as long as possible. And I have a much better chance of doing that now that I am a non-smoker.
