So.....This is what I recieved in my e-mail this weekend.

Hello Karin
Your Quit Date is:Saturday, December 31, 2005 at 8:30:00 PM
Time Smoke-Free:188 days, 8 hours, 30 minutes and 54 seconds
Cigarettes NOT smoked:2260
Lifetime Saved:17 days, 6 hours
Money Saved:$396.90

Now I leave for California on Wednesday this week and I am scared to death that I will end up smoking. It has only been 6 months. I think that I should of put this vacation off for a little while but I did not think about this at the time.

I look at this and I am so proud of myself. I think ONLY 17 days of my life saved and then I think, I have 17 more days to spend with my grandchildren. I really don't care about the money saved, it was never about that. I also look at the cigarettes not smoked and think "holy cow", I don't want to go back to 1 cigarette not smoked again. I don't think I could do it again.

Please pray for me. I will be strong, I swear I will.

I would think that California would be one of the easiest places not to smoke. They've banned it almost everywhere, and most people give you the evil eye if they do see you smoking.

There's even a sign in the Sacramento airport (at least there was the last time I was there three years ago) that says "Welcome to the Non-Smoking Section of the Country." Ha! I love that.

NIF (smokefree since 1986 except for one slip in 1991)
