Hey there members! We're compiling a list of all the events and milestones that our members like to keep track of in their lives. For instance, most of us like to keep track of birthdays of family and friends. Parents like to keep a record of when their children hit milestones, such as rolling over, first words, walking, cutting a tooth. And, many of us keep track of our medications, treatments and doctors visits. Members of our Breast Cancer community like to share with others when they have been "Cancer Free" for six months, a year, two years, and on.
Think about what you like to keep track of and milestones you like to share with your family and friends and post them here in this thread. I bet you all keep track of a lot of things our staff would never think of!
Have you quit yet? Do you have a quit date? I quit 21 years ago and never looked back. You can do this. Best thing you can ever do for yourself.

First congrats on quitting!!! There can be so many side affects from quitting, but you should follow up with your doctor just to be sure it's nothing more than the nicotine leaving your body. From experience I can tell you, you feel bad before you feel better but check with your doctor to be sure. I hope you feel better soon, and congrats again. Please let us know how you are doing!View Thread
Oh my gosh what an experience and I am so sorry about the loss of your friend. You know doing all you are doing to take care of your body by exercising and watching what you eat, smoking negates those benefits. Quitting is the BEST thing you can do for your body, out of all of it! The cravings last a while I hate to say, but they do lessen, that much I can tell you! They get shorter and come less. You need to push past it. Please check in with us, I hope you are doing well!View Thread
