Hi All, My name is Laurie and I am a grateful alcoholic. For the record, I celebrated 25 years of continuous sobriety on Jan. 18th of this year, but, we all know that the only day that matters is this one. I went through treatment twice, once at 23 and then again at 28. There is no doubt in my mind that were it not for this program I would have died years ago from drinking or by my own hand. I smoked for 40 years and for at least 20 of those years I sincerely wanted to quit. I tried everything, all the products as soon as they came out. Got maybe as much as 3 months together and then I'd break down and buy a pack. Often times it would come down to the feeling that I was either gonna pick up a drink or smoke a cigarette and since sobriety was my priority the cigarette got smoked. I went to Nicotine Anonymous meetings for a while, but they didn't take. It was very demoralizing. I didn't understand why I could work the steps so successfully in one area of my life and fail so completely in another. Oh well, it's kept me humble. I bought my first e-cigarette as soon as I heard about them, because one promises I have kept to myself is that I would never stop trying to quit. (Winners are losers who keep on trying, right?). I didn't expect much, just thought it would be yet another attempt. Boy, was I wrong! Did the inventor of this thing not hit the nail on the head? They HAD to be a fellow smoker. It will be 6 months this week since I had my last cigarette. That feels funny to say because I still feel like I'm smoking, but I don't stink, I can breathe and smell and taste and I'm saving a fortune! I sure hope they don't discover that after vaping for a couple of years your nose falls off, cause I'm gonna be looking pretty funny if that's the case. Anyway, Friends, That's all for now. Keep commin back! It works if you work it!
