Midas' 2 Month Pep Talk
Hey Everybody. Today marks my 2nd month Nic Free!!! Yay. To everyone trying to quit--Hang In There! You can do it.
I can tell I feel better. My Mom says I look terrific. I'm glowing. Gee, thanks Ma. Since I quit the smokes & the Java, my sleep cycles now have a more normal pattern. My acuity (sharpness of mind) is improving too. Look out, I'm using BIG words again.
My voice is doing strange things though. It's reminds me of when I went through puberty. LOL. Seriously. I'm also puzzled about my stuttering. I've never had that problem until now. Sometimes my voice suddenly cuts out when I'm in the middle of a sentence. All I do is 'wet my whistle' and start over.
Overall, I seem to be changing. Mostly for the better. My attitude has a much smoother quality to it now. It's Odd...in a good way.
So Keep Up the Good Work, Team!

Congratulations, my wife and I are almost at nine months now.
Today I can't believe we used to be a cigarette smokers.
Doing the right thing, when no one else is looking.

My digestive system seems to be working better without the coffee. Too much acid. I might switch to decaf after a few months, but I'm thinking about picking up my Exotic Tea Interest again. I've tried a few that will knock your socks off, and it's not because of the caffeine content. The Ultra Exotics are for special occasions only...considering some of them are upwards of $40 a pound.
Everyone is doing great! Keep It Up!!

Day 12 here!
I quit for 3 years a while back and my voice became less deep. I know what you mean about it feeling strange. I mean, I listen to myself with out giving it a thought (hmmm maybe I should think about it a little more?) and then I sounded different.
By the way I picked up again because I was with a friend who could have one cigarette and one glass of wine on her deck in the evening. It sounded so restful. Good thing I am not an alchoholic! That was 8 or 9 years ago!
Have a good day all!

Day 2 for me. Going CT on smokes and alcohol. I have to. The "wean yourself off" routine just prolongs the anxiety for me. Besides, I always smoked WAY more when I was drinking. They went hand-in-hand. The beer ALWAYS made the smokes more enjoyable.
I am REALLY looking forward to the day where I say I don't smoke or drink.
HEY - WAIT A MINUTE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
That day is TODAY.
Well, I guess that means I just might have to go out and treat myself to a nice dinner tonight to celebrate.
Anybody want to come along? I'm thinking mexican food (and no, I don't mean Taco Bell, even though I am a Taco Bell ADDICT)
