    Alright, MCCR! Great to hear and welcome to the forum!

    MBs. Is there any thing they can't do? (Aside from long steep hills? Sork)

    Woo-hoo 12 weeks of no smoking! Happy New Year to me - :)

    Also vapeing a lot less. Was doing 30 ml a week, now about 15. Going to order up 12 mg/ml juice next time, now using 18.

    New dog keeps me on the mile a day walking thing, just pesters me until I take her. Then we have to go to the dog park in the afternoon so I can do another half mile and she can run 2 or 3. Puppies!

    We also have to do the fetch and tug thing, so she is working my arms as well.

    I'm back to smoking cigars, but not inhaling them.

    Guys who are vaping, Just a heads up. Stay away from Cinnamon, its delicious. But very bad for you.

    Thanks.

    I started smoking in high school when I was ~16. Stopped when I was 59. Forty three years of smoking, quit 4 times, still on #4. Thought I'd be like Pops who smoked till the day he died. Well when he lived at home. You can't smoke in the nursing home.

    Feels good, I like it. I still love nicotine though and I think I always will. But this just has to be better, you don't cough like you did smoking and that sure means something.

    Day 3 and woke at 4am wanting a smoke. Coffee time so kinda expected but really wanted one.

    Kinda cool feeling like I don't "need" one. And 3 days is usually the pass/fail day for my runs at this.

    Keep it up Dan. I am 4 years nicotine free in March, looked that up a couple days ago. Yep 3 days is the first milestone, for me 3 weeks was the next milestone.

    Are you still trying to figure out who gets it first? The cat or the dog as soon as they come out of hiding.

    I'll bet the dog gets it cause he has the iPhone7.
