Good morning my fellow EXers!!!! It dawned on me as I was getting ready for work today while looking in the mirror...This is a special day for me because today I have 700 days free of nasty cigarettes! Almost two years ago, I made one of the best decisions of my life and I quit smoking! I never thought in my wildest dreams that I could have accumulated 700 minutes smoke-free, let alone 700 days. To everyone struggling with their quits: This is doable. It takes a strong commitment and a certain kind of mind-set but it is definitely worth it. I feel so much healthier and so much happier with myself. Life still happens and bad things still happen but I know that smoking does NOT make anything better, and in fact it makes things worse...I'm no longer running outside or wondering when I'll get my next fix! As promised by the dear elders on this site, I barely even think of cigs or smoking anymore. When a thought pops into my head every once in awhile, I quickly brush it away and move on to bigger and better things! One last thing-I am 100% certain that I wouldn't have made it this far without the care and comfort that I get on this site. So I am deeply thankful to everyone here especially elders. Hey wait a minute, I'm an elder!! Love all you guys and I'm sticking around here because we are all winners!!!!! . CP, a happy quitter at 700 days of freedom!!!!!!
