    Sure is a test of willpower

    Congrats on the 16 days though. Stick with it buddy. I've been about 4 months now and it's amazing how much better I feel.

    Sad to hear about yer little buddy - that's really hard.

    I quit smoking 35 years ago - never get those urges anymore - they do subside - great job - keep going.

    I quit drinking - been well over a year - still wanna get dr...... well ya know. I can't - bed things happen when I do - it's not worth it.

    Wish I could do something about eating. I'm afraid to try quitting - I think something bad will happen.

    To be clear, I haven't failed the test, my determination to quit is going to win out this time! Just a tough test is all.

    What's that movie line? I picked a fine time to quit{something like that}...lol
