Thursday Pledge
Good morning all
Happy Thursday!!!!!!
Up and moving for the day today - not moving fast but moving.  I am on the road today meeting in the north east and then down to the south to deal with staff and finish the day with a meeting.  Should be an OK day.  I am unsure if I will make it in tomorrow as I have to head to Red Deer, but not all meetings are confirmed so I am waiting to see what happens with the confirmation.  I am off to Banff again on Saturday morning so be back on Sunday.  Smoking - big HELL NO to that one.  I will continue to live the dream here on the Freedom Road.  Life may not be perfect, but it is sure better than illness and death via smoking.  My hand is offered to the next winner joining me in kicking ash to the curb today.
Have a good one

    Cara, do you get time off at Cristmas? Now that you are not in class it seems you are working all the time. Glad to read that there were no surprises for tmann at the doctors. China is the next destination for his clan if I read that correctly. Traveling and smoking does not go well together. Going past the security at the airport was once a nightmare just because I couldn't smoke. I celebrate the fact that time of my life is over. Never again will tobacco dictate to me my reality. No to smoking. Yes to healthier and wealthier. I hold out my hand.

    Ahhh another milestone to celebrate for me! 3 months today! 
    It feels like the days pass by pretty slow right now (haha) but I have never felt so proud of myself and so happy and healthy! Some days I want to give up but this site and the support of my family, friends and co-workers is assisting me in making each day a success in this journey!  
    Congratulations to everyone on another smoke free day! 
    Those embarking on their first few days, congratulations on taking the first step in BEST decision of your life :)

    Thursday is here....whoop!  Haven't had the greatest week but it's coming to a close.  I am going to visit my parents this weekend and then get my hair done.  I've been spraying the greys for too many days. lol  There will be no time in my day for smoking.  I've wanted to quite a bit this week but I'm at the point where it's just a quick thought and I move on.  Happy to be on this road, not leaving now.  Have a great day!

    Morning all. It’s been so long since I spend a day at home. Hair appointment today, then I think I will hurry back and work a bit more in basement. One thing about it, makes you thin out the junk. I agree Cheryle. Still crosses my mind to smoke but poof it’s gone. Will not smoke today!!

    Good Morning everyone!! Congrats MegBT on your 3 months smoke free amazing job!! Doesn't it feel great that you aren't wasting your time going out and trying to light that cigarette in the cold weather!! Keep it up. 
    It has been a couple of blah days maybe it is the weather that has been affecting it. But one thing for sure is that I am not going to start smoking.

    Congratulations MegBT. 3 months give or take a couple of days was the furthest I ever got in a quit. Once I surpassed that mark this time I knew I was actually going to succeed. I will continue to succeed, and pledge to no smoking today. I have a Christmas lunch with a secret santa so that should be fun. Enjoy your day folks. Not One Puff Ever!!!!

    Happy Milestone Day everybody! Every day smoke free is a milestone right? We break old records every day. Exercise, walk and maybe some pball this afternoon will fill my day. I’ve hit a wall on the weight loss but will push forward. Smoking? Ain’t gonna happen. Who else?
