I have to brag and say that I have not smoked since New Year's Eve. I cheated on St. Patty's Day and had one, but pulled a Bill Clinton, so I don't really consider that slipping. I started smoking socially in college, you know, just at bars, or "only when I'm drinking." I always said I would quit when I got out of college but that didn't happen.
Now, it has been almost 4 full months and I really feel that I have kicked the habit. I even survived vacation and drinking and relaxing with no smokes.
If you know people that quit, congratulate them. I wish all the people that gave me shit for smoking while I was smoking, would be more enthusiastic when I tell them you have quit.
