2 years

2 years ago today I started on my non smoking journey. The early days were difficult and short tempered. The first year included massive highs and deep dark lows. Weight gain has plateaued (exercise difficult due to exercise injury!!).

Has it been worth it? A definite YES!! :D

Stats: cigs not smoked 21228, money 'saved' £6686

Well done to all of the others in the Oct 2011 group who will achieve 2 years smoke free this month. :)
