Happy Winter Solstice to all the members of Ex. Today marks the darkest (fewest hours of daylight) in the Northern Hemisphere. You know what that means? Starting tomorrow, every day will be just a tiny bit lighter for a tiny bit longer.
Who can see the metaphor coming? yeah, yeah
Just like quitting, it gets dark before it gets bright. Once you throw away the smokes, it gets a tiny bit easier for a tiny bit longer every day. Until suddenly - you are a non-smoker.
