|Veridian, congratulations for finding success in your chosen field, and -- of course -- for staying smoke-free through all the trials and tribulations, rejections, rewrites, etc. along the way You are indomitable!
Mommyme184, yes, it would be nice to fast-forward a week, but take it one day at a time, you'll get there. You have experience, you have support, and I'm sure you have strong reasons for making this change. Stay strong, and please know that you can call a Quit Coach for additional support if needed at 1-877-513-5333.

Hi everyone! It's been a while since my last visit. So much has happened lately, I feel like I'm on a merry go round that keeps spinning faster and faster!
I'm still on my quit, almost 2 years and 7 months into it, already. I don't miss them at all. In fact the smell of cigarette smoke makes me gag now. I guess I've inspired others to at least try quitting, so it's been a bit of a domino effect for good things going on.
The really big news is that after five years of writing, countless rejections, edits, revisions, a full rewrite, more edits, a title change, more rejections, finally one last title change and a submission on a whim, my first book will be coming out later this year. An e-book publisher decided to give me a chance, and I've been going crazy trying to get things ready for them with edits, character descriptions for the cover, talking things over with my editor, and a lot of other things.
It has been an amazing experience so far, and even though I'm scared to death, I'm so happy and excited this is finally happening after so many years of rejections and nasty remarks from family members.
I'm also back to writing, and I hope to have this WIP's rough draft done by March 10, so I can let it perk for a few weeks and get another story going when I'm not promoting book #1.
So yeah, that's why I haven't been around a lot. Life got in the way.
I hope everyone's doing wonderfully! Keep the quit going gang. Y'all have got this. One day at a time.
