I could easily cry tears of joy for THIS DAY!.  There are no words to express how I feel.  I am honored and happy to be a part of this community.  I am having many thoughts and reflections on this journey right now.  I have much to be thankful for but I will try to be quick this morning.  Now and then I go back to read some of my old blogs.  I have found them very helpful throughout the journey.  I can see where I started, the trials and accomplishments.  The comments, wisdom help, and support from the community have impacted me and I hold a keepsake of my journey.

BTW (by the way)  I would advise everyone to chronicle their journey whether by blog or in a personal journal  

You will not regret it.

Four (4) years thank God I am free. I don't have the words to explain it. I am free.  No longer bound. No more chains holding me.  My soul is rested, oh what a blessing.  Praise the Lord!  Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord!  Hallelujah, I'm free. 

This morning I read a few of my old blogs.  One was written roughly 270+ days into my quit.  It chronicled how I felt.  I hope that you will take the time to read it.   The link is below.  I hope someone gains something from it and will help you to move forward on your journey.  Because the journey continues...


I had made up my mind that no matter what  I would never take another puff and had resolved that it would be by any mean necessary.  Whatever I had to do not to smoke I was going to do it. Smoking was no longer an option. SINAO

Here are a few blogs that I would like to share.  Have a blessed day.  NOPE, I am free. 

Make up your Mind! 

By any means necessary

This is how I feel right now.
