One year quit and a wedding

Good morning everyone, hope the sun is shining on you all on this lovely Saturday morning and I hope you don't mind me sharing my little story with you.

When I first embarked on my quit all the money I wasn't spending in tobacco went on wool to teach myself to crochet. I had to keep my hands busy and everyone got a scarf for Christmas last year! Eventually though u didn't need to do that so just kind of started squirreling a little bit of cash away for 'just in case'. It turns out that the benefits of not smoking are threefold, I feel healthier, my partner then asked me to marry him and I've saved enough cash for a small wedding in August!! Now looking back on all the tough times this makes it all worthwhile :) who would've thought it!

Have a great day :)
