I've been quit now 3 years 6 months and 7 days. I had my main reason when I quit It was Simple and Basic "I wanted to live" as most as you know I was on a ventilator for the first 4 days of my quit. It's not a surprise that the list of reasons to stay quit has grown.
My wife and I yesterday evening watched my grandson for 3.5 hours. I was holding Baby Buck (what I call him) and giving him is bottle and realized he is the first grandchild that won't see grandpa smoke or smell nasty from smoking and a sense of pride came over me. It felt good knowing I don't smoke. I also realized if I continued to smoke I would have never been able to experience last night. Best thing I ever did was to quit destroying my body.
Just a add on speaking of experiences Baby Buck at the early age of 9 weeks old reminded / taught his grandpa something last night. I haven't changed a diaper in 26 years until last night and I was quickly reminded why you always keep the thing covered when changing the diaper on a boy
I don't know if my reasons to stay quit will continue to grow but I truly hope so. Love feeling good. On the other side of the coin I still haven't found 1 reason ever to go back.
Have a great weekend everyone
