Marla,

congratulations on maintaining your smobriety. 2 1/2 years ago I was stationed away from the family and decided "just one" would be ok. After all, when I was reunited with my family it would be easy to quit.

It took another year to quit again, after a 'successful' year of smobriety. Goes to show quitting is a day to day process.

The bottom line is that you got the smokes out of the house. If you had stopped to think about it, you and your friend might both be smoking. Hopefully she'll have the resolve to quit successfully,in the near future, but it will have to be her choice.

Thanks for reminding us how easy it can be to fall off the wagon.

Ezra
