I'm so proud of my sister Phyllis! This week she has been cigarette free for five months!!!
This is especially significant for P.J. She has tried to quit so many times in the past and has never been able to make it this long before. She is prone to a very nervous disposition and has been smoking since she was a teenager (she turned 56 last month). But I guess this time her desire to quit is stronger than the nicotine.
She isn't on the computer as much, so I don't get to interact with her on Facebook as much as before. The reason? Because she recognizes that the computer is one of her triggers. She was used to sitting down at the computer to relax -- with a cigarette. So she'll go on at least once a day just long enough to check her email, and perhaps check in on Facebook for just a few minutes, but she doesn't play any of the games she used to enjoy or spend a lot of time just surfing the web. Of course, she uses a computer for work, but that's different. I guess I can give up my only real computer-buddy sister for a good cause!
