During my first year, I was asked if I were on my deathbed, would I want a cigarette? My answer during that time was, 'heck, yeah!" I had not yet become an ex-smoker even though I had quit.
I realized in thinking about it today that my answer has changed (over the past six months). I am NOW an ex-smoker. You can be one, too! It's all in how you think about it!
