    Ten years ago, this discussion board *immensely* helped me as I started on my quit journey. I have fortunately stayed "quit" since Jan. 29, 2006 at 9:00 p.m. ET, and tonight am celebrating my 10-year quitiversary. Let me just tell you that the deep breathing has been spectacular! I can even sing!

    I'd closed my account in the meantime, but opened a new one just to post this, in case any old-timers are still around.

    Back then, such a quitiversary would be celebrated by a wild party in a virtual (imaginary) barn with any number of musicians, snacks, and firemen.

    Anyway, I just wanted to let everyone know that quitting IS totally possible--mine was a cold quit without patches or meds...just the support of a lot of people here.
