9 months: A small pregnancy

Wow, nine months since I stoppped smoking. I stopped completely, no hesitation, no ambivalence. NOT ONE BLIP... Not a puff here or there.

Sure, I have my moments of thinking about smoking, when I see someone on TV, or catch a whiff of the fresh smoke wafting in the air. However, I know that I don't need or even want that life any more. Like others, I romanticize smoking, as in the Hamlet cigar add.. It's all an illusion!!!

I'm proud, but when I think of the effort it takes for a real pregnancy, this is only the beginning of life... And I want to live!!!

  • Well done Alex. Nine months is a fantastic achievement, and you sound so secure. It's very inspiring.

    I'm a few weeks behind you, so if you could tidy up the penthouse for me when you get there, that would be splendid.
