I had just finished editing and posting the series, Your 7 Steps to Health and Happiness, and I had re-inspired myself.
An hour later, of course, I was rethinking that. But it’s now 45 hours later and I’m still cigarette and tobacco-free.
Larra and I have been eating a lot of fruits and veggies, and having green smoothies 2-3 times a day, and I know that’s been helping me a lot, too. This kind of diet makes the body more alkaline, and when it’s more alkaline it heals faster.
Oh – we stopped drinking coffee, too. That alone allows the body to be more alkaline.

There’s another secret to my ongoing success. It’s all the help I’ve gotten from my 4,327 friends on Facebook. When I get to those moments that I don’t think I can live another minute without a smoke, I posted something like, “Cigarette-free for 4 hours.”
When I went back and posted “Cigarette-free for 6 hours,” I found I had dozens of responses to the previous posts.
I’ve had so much feedback now that it can keep me busy for half an hour, “liking” the comments and suggestions, and replying to them. Below is just a bit of what I’ve gotten.

Well, it all helped except for the picture of Jesus peeking around the corner, and what he said. That ruined my life
