I've made it two years! Quitting was one of the best decisions I've ever made. In the time since I've quit I've lost weight, gotten in shape and can now run up to ten miles! My heart condition is gone, and asthma is much better, typically only have a flair when allergies are bad. I've gotten my finances in order; it's easier when you have $10 extra per day not going to smokes! I'm just more productive overall. It's amazing how much time you have when you aren't wasting your life smoking! For those of you starting, it is hard, but it is so worth it. This is the best gift you will ever give yourself. Happy New Year!
