 Marilyn.H.July.14.14. your post reminded me of this.  I wrote this about a year into my quit I added coming to the EX 

CHOICE.   Choice It affects almost every aspect of our life. Everything about our life is a choice.  From getting out of bed, what to wear, what to eat, when to eat, who are friends are, what we believe in, to smoke or not to smoke, to quit or not to quit. I can't blame anyone except myself for smoking I can't blame my Friends, Alcohol or Big Tobacco. It was my choice to put the first one in my mouth It was my choice to lite the damn thing, My choice to inhale the poison, My choice to buy my first pack and every pack after that. It was my choice to continue to smoke. It wasn't the addiction to nicotine that made the choice I made a conscious choice to smoke It was my choice to ignore those warnings.  I thought it was my sickness that made me quit smoking. It wasn't, I made the choice to quit. I make a choice everyday not to smoke I make a choice everyday to try to live a cleaner better life. The only person whom I am angry with is myself as I made a stupid choice to start smoking. Now I make a choice to take what I have learned and use it to make a better more sensible choice in things I do or no longer do. Coming here to the EX after Quitnet closed was a choice.  Everything concerning me in my life was my choice The good and the bad. I just want to continue to make the best choice I can in everything I do,
