    Congratulations! That's fabulous! That really is an accomplishment.

    I wish I could get my daughter to quit. She started in college and hasn't quit, she's 32 now and I really worry about her.
    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

    Awesome!!! I'm 4 years quit. Best thing I ever did. Let me know if you need encouragement...it was the hardest thing I've battled, and I battled it on and off for nearly 20 years before I got it whooped. I never think about it anymore, thank God!!!

    Congrats. I stopped 30 years ago when I got married. Wife didn't smoke and my smoking irritated her asthma.

    Congrats, that is great! I would say that is a good reason to go out and get a new gun. Let us know what you end up getting!
