Everytime you post a success or milestone you should feel proud of your accomplishment. I for one feel a rush whenever I achieve the next whatever it is and I want to have this feeling again and again. I do not only feel good about my own little victories, I find my mind has pleasurable thoughts every time I read of your successes.
These achievements make me feel good about myself and when your feeling good you want to continue doing what you are doing. There really is little time for negative thinking because you recogonize it is just a waste of time. This business of putting nicotine, on the shelf in your life, is serious indeed. It will however be as hard or as easy as you choose to make it.

For those of us who have not yet reached the golden ranks, onwards we climb, yes of course to the Lido deck you know, one minute, one hour, one day at a time.
