I have not posted often in the past few months, but felt the need write my thoughts.
I am back from visiting my mom for Mother’s Day, which is probably her last. Also, drove to Atlanta to see about my mom’s house . . . to love on my 4 children and grandbabies. While in Atlanta my mom’s house, which is quite old, caught fire. The fire inspector said it was caused by faulty electrical wiring. Totally accidental but still a horror when I saw it.
The last few months have been monumental for me. I lost my quit when my Dad passed. Begin again in February. I have gotten through my mom recently being diagnosed with terminal cancer, and now this fire, and I give credit to the people at QSJ in helping me to do this. I have learned so much here . . not only about smoking, but about people going through tough times in their own lives. I have learned about tenacity; strong will and determination in the face of one of the hardest habits I have overcome.
There has been unrest here lately at QSJ. When it seems that the rest of this world is falling apart, and too many things happening that are just plain wrong . . . don’t let that happen here! Let us focus on what this place is all about, and what the creators of this place wanted. We Are family, and just like family, we give unconditional love and support to those in need.
Anyone and everyone, always has a chance to post. I have never seen posts deleted by the administrators because there were too many of them. I have never seen anyone denied the right to speak their mind, unless they were being abusive. Remember what’s important. We come here from all over the world to fight addiction, and to fight for Freedom together!
I have been quit 3 months, have not smoked 3103 cigarettes, and I know now, without a doubt in my mind, that I will never smoke again.
That’s what this place is all about Charlie Brown.
Change your thoughts and change your world.
