Even though difficult times are clouding my day, I can't let this milestone pass with no recognition!
Today I have 888 days since I broke the cycle of addiction, since I have not even held a cigarette in my hand, and since I dealt with every instance when I was tempted to held it and even light it up.
Because there is no such thing as "just one cigarette";
Because I do not do that anymore;
Because I make the choice to "NOPE";
Because I learned here so much about the positive effects of quitting and they have been imprinted on my brain;
Because I make the choice every day to stay quit;
Because I come here day after day to renew the knowledge about the addiction and the determination to stay quit from every one of your blogs and comments;
Because I hope my own 888 DOFs can become an inspiration for anyone wanting to quit, or having a hard time at the beginning of their quit;
Because I know I have here a group of not only EX, but also of friends, ready to hold me straight no matter the challenge life puts in my way;
So yes, I am proud of 888 DOF, and wish everyone of you to aspire, reach, and pass the same milestone!
Thank you EX for helping me get here!
