Every Wednesday night for the past 6 years has been Date Night for my husband and I.
We are fortunate in so many ways. 1) We have the means to go out once a week and dance 2) We have the health to go out once a week and dance 3) We still like each other enough to go out once a week and dance :-)
I do not take all those blessings for granted. Not for a moment do I forget that I have the options open to me that other people do not. Sure, we have to tighten the budget in other areas to make this work, but we beleive the benefits are more than worth the price.
I look forward to date night as a non-smoker. I don't have to worry about mint gum, odor spray, whether my hair smells like an ashtray, scrubbing my hands one more time to get the stains off.
I comb my hair, add some lipstick, and off we go!
Just reminding myself of the little benefits of quitting smoking that add up and up and up
