Ten years quit

Hello, fellow quitters!
I used to post here under the name Just Plain Phil. That was ten years
ago. I quit for the last time on February 16, 1998, and haven't had a
smoke since then.
I like to come back now and again to encourage you all to be quitters
like the other OF's here. I've lost my quit meter several computers
ago, but I am sure the money I've saved would add up into the tens of
thousands of dollars, as I smoked 1-1/2 to 2 packs a day. Benson and
Hedges was my brand of choice, when I wasn't inhaling Borkum Riff in
one of my many pipes.
The good news is that yes, you will get to the point where you don't
think about smoking at all anymore. Look at me - I even missed my
ten-year anniversary by a month! You'll also get to the point where
you'll come into work, walk past all the smokers huddled in the rain,
snow, sleet, whatever - and be grateful you don't have to do that
anymore. You'll also get the firm resolve that you'll never have "just
one" ever again, because you know what will happen if you do.
All of this stuff will be so much a part of your subconscious that it
won't be bugging you at all anymore, and you'll find yourself doing
other things besides smoking - things that will be much more healthy
and beneficial to the new life you're living.
So, keep on keeping on, folks. You'll be glad you did. And some day,
after you've been quit for ten years or more, you'll maybe sign on
here and leave a note of encouragement for the folks here, many of
whom helped you out when you needed it most.
