Boy, does it feel good to say that!
I quit on March 14th last year, and it's January 14th, 2013, so that means I've completed ten months with nary a puff.
Been through a few personal challenges that, in the old days, would have resulted in LOTS of smoking. I got through them, proved to myself that I could do it, and reminded myself that smoking wouldn't have helped one bit - but would instead have made these challenges worse.
So don't give in, anyone! One day at a time, one step at a time, and you can become a smoke-free person. Believe me, if I can do it, you can do it! I know you've heard that many times before, but it's true.
I quit hoping I'd be successful, but I was pretty skeptical. I am no longer skeptical. Now I spend my time trying to figure out what to do with the $1,700 US dollars I've saved.
I'll close by saying this (and I wouldn't have believed this in the beginning): these days, I don't think about smoking at all. I think about coming to this board from time to time because I keep a link in the menu bar, but I don't think about smoking.
Oh happy day!
