    I have replied via PM to pfcs49.

    Thank-you.

    To each and every one here, as I have said before, you have my respect and my support. This thread is the best on AK as it is about caring about one another no matter where we come from.

    For me, the first five years were the most challenging. I had family that drank, a grandmother that did not support my effort and said "You don't have a drinking problem, you have a control problem" as she poured a Jim Beam.

    I learned to get a hotel room when visiting family, and when the sheeeeet starts, head out.

    Congratulations!

    A lot of One Day's at a Time with a lot of help. Smartest thing I've ever done, rediscovering music is up there too.

    Congrats brother. On the 10th of Feb I just celebrated my 26th birthday. One of my favorites: We will do well in remembering today we are sober by the grace of God and any success we may be having is far more his success than ours. 12x12 p.91 (close but not exact quote).

    I was able to quit nicotine in 2001. They still call to me but I quit jonesing after a few months.
    Congratulations! Believe me (experience) with smokes, the first puff will take you back! And you'll have it all to do over again!
    I'm 33 years sober; giving up cigarettes was harder than booze.

    Same with me I found the cigs much harder to quit booze on the other hand was killing me so in that way I knew something had to give. Cigs not so much.

    As it turns out, I last had nicotine 5 years ago today. If I refrain from stupidity until late March, I will have 30 years sober so it certainly took longer to start the journey with cigarettes. The ONLY reality is that with each, today is what matters.
