There are a lot of things we think we'll never do. We'll never take that first puff that made us into addicts. We'll never take that second puff because the first one was so awful, how could anyone actually get addicted to this? We'll never quit because we like the sensation of smoking. We'll never see ourselves being able to quit. We'll never hit those big milestones we see others here hit (1 month, 100 days, 1000 days, even 1 day). I remember when I first came to this site and I saw members here that were up into the thousands of numbers of days since they had smoked their last cigarette and I never thought I'd get there.
There were days when I was a kid when I thought I'd never be an adult and be able to make my own choices. There were days when I thought I would never make it through high school, never make it to college. I never thought I'd move to Florida and live so close to the ocean I had never seen. I never thought I'd own a house at the age of 21. I never thought I'd find a job I liked and be self sufficient.
When you're in the moment, the future seems so far away that you'll never get there, but once it's in the past, you wonder where the time went. You really never know...
The future may surprise you.
