    Thank You - Being honest is way more important than quitting smoking!

    Yeah, I'm OK - I've just been watching and waiting to find out what's real and what's not real in this universe of ours. I'm seriously cutting back on the Seroquel - I was at 1000mg and down to 600mg now so I have to re-acclimate myself to the real world, or something like that. I just noticed you are the moderator now - that's really great! A lot of people rely on these forums to stay cool and collected in their bad times, and having a moderator is a really important part of it. Anyways, I will keep watching and helping as I can. Thanks for checking me out though! Much appreciated!

    I can understand cutting down on your meds I think that's great brother. Hopefully it wont take long to acclimate. Thanks for sharing and I'm glad your hanging in there.

    Nicotine was more difficult than anything. I was abstinent 8 times before I was free from craving. One time on my 7th attempt, I was abstinent for one year to the day and the craving came back. My freedom was based on self -examination, analyzing all my behavioral sensory connections by rewiring my brain with sight, sound, smell, taste, and touch. I smoked after sex, after a meal, on the phone, after catching fish, driving, reading, the smell and sound of the match, lighter, etc.

    @cheffy I hope and pray your med cut back goes well for you,I miss seeing you around here but I understand the need to work on one's self might mean less online time.So I have been struggling more than normal lately and as I read your post here I realized, this current struggle really took off after I started my psych meds,like literally the struggle got worse by about 2-3 time's and I am currently considering doing the same as far as lowering my dose and hopefully to the point of some sort of athletic release for my hypertension and mood swings as running was a true blessing for me for 10 month's until I hurt my knee,anyways all this to say will you please keep me posted on your progress because I care and I want to see if you can give me any ideas on how to make this finally work for me.Thanks again and take care of yourself my friend God be with you

    I prefer you to remain anonymous as well. Like I was a heroin and coke and valium addict, but I still want to be anonymous.
    Wasn't asking you to reveal who you are.
    I just enjoy talking to you...
