What More Can I Say?

Blog Post created by djmurray_12-31-14 on Apr 11, 2019

I've been popping in a little more often lately, but I've really felt that I don't have much to add to the conversation.  I've been going through probably three months of tough times, and my quit is solid, and when I read blogs I find that what I would say has already been said -- and much more eloquently than I could say it.  But I was going through my emails, and as I've mentioned before, I get a daily email telling me how many days I've been quit, how much money I've saved, how much extra life I'll have, and how many cigarettes I haven't smoked.  And that number floored me!  I guess I haven't paid much attention to that last number for a while.  I haven't smoked 46,860 cigarettes since I quit.  Which means when I quit I was smoking a little more than 10,000 cigarettes a year.  That was when I was down to a little more than a pack a day.  But during my entire smoking "career" I spent more years smoking 3 packs of cigarettes a day.  Wow!  I am grateful that I still have lungs, and grateful that I finally wised up, and grateful that when I wised up I found this community, and the rest is history.  What more can I say?
