Smoke free is the only life for you and for me, quitting is difficult but anything worth having in life takes time and effort , before I quit smoking I thought I am fine even though I knew I should quit but never thought I could because I tried and failed so many times in the past but I know now that I wasn't willing to put my heart and soul into it and until I found out that I have copd which scared the crap out of me, I didn't really consider quitting but finding out that I wasn't invincible made me realize that it was time to take back my life. Finding this site back in June / 14 and hiding in the shadows reading everything I could find and finally commenting on someone's blog six wks into my quit and someone, Moody I believe suggested that I write a blog and tell all of you little bit about myself so I did and here I am 659 days into my quit. I am so thankful that I let myself be known because at that point I was on a roller coaster of ups and downs and mood swings, I would cry at nothing one second and want to rip your face off the next second. I didn't have a lot of company the first couple of months of my quit because nobody wanted to be around me which was perfect and thankfully I found this site and all of you my friends and fellow Exers, quitting smoking is absolutely doable and definitely worth it, I smoked for 40 yrs and now I am a prime example of a Happy Quitter.  There's definitely life after cigarettes so stick around and read everything you can and continue stacking up your precious days of freedom.
