Quoting mtlgal

Happy belated birthday Anne!! What did you do to celebrate?

I didnt do much...I was supposed to go to Key West for my birthday but I changed my mind at the last minute. I had so many things to do since I got back from my trip, still trying to put everything in order. The hubby made a delicious dinner for me and the family.

My celebration will take place this weekend in New York . Did I mention to anyone I quit smoking cold turkey yesterday? Thats another present for my health for my birthday! Lets see how long it lasts...

That is excellent Anne! Did you plan to quit, or did you just wake up and decide that day? (I still haven't quit :( )
Much luck to you! I will keep my fingers crossed for you!

I was at the gym yesterday and I was telling someone I really need to quit because of the hike in Kilimanjaro next year. I am trying to get my lungs ready for it so he was telling me all the reasons why I shouldnt smoke, blah blah blah...the usual...heard it 1000 times before.

But then I got home and I just told Steve...you know what, I am not smoking anymore, thats it. No particular reason...this is just as good of time as any to quit so there it is. Cold turkey...but like I said, I will let you know in one week how is really going. I am sure I will crave it but the bottom line is how well I will resist under temptation. Thank God none of my friends smoke!

Great to see you back, Anne

I quit smoking five years ago. That time I decided that if I never had "just ONE cigarette", then I'd never get the chance to have a second.

Swimming underwater is a great way for increasing lung capacity, and a much better alternative to smoking.

I haven't checked the "Off Topic" board in a while....happy (belated) birthday to Anne, Tina and Sam (in no particular order! )!

Hope you all had a blast!

Cheers,
Katie ;)

Congrats! I quit cold turkey as well....and I haven't bought a pack in 5 years! (For shame on me though...sometimes I bum one when I'm out drinking with friends )

Shame on me too. I missed Tways and Sam's birthdays. Isa just sent me the b-day list (thanks Isa) so I have no excuse from now on.

Anyway, happy birthday guys!

Hope you both had lovely days.

Anne, go for it! I did the very same thing - woke up one morning and said "That's it!" and I quit. (although like Katie, I am prone to light up the very odd one with a drink). Its great because my fitness has really improved. I can run on the treadmill now without throwing up violently afterwards.

Best of luck! and if you slip up, try again.
