So I have achieved a great milestone!!! I have been smoke free for 365 days...it has not been easy. There has been some ups and some downs. There has been some gains and some loses. I have cried and I have smiled.... but through it all I have prevailed. Not alone... without God and this community of supporters I could not have done this!!! You all have been such an inspiration. Never in all of the times I attempted to quit did I feel like I would be letting someone down besides myself. Never did I ever feel like I could fail. I do not want to mention names as I might leave someone out but THANK YOU to everyone!!! I lost a student two weeks ago. She was shot on her way home from school.. I ran to the hospital and was so upset. Someone was standing next to me smoking and all I could do was ask them to please move their smoke was bothering me. I passed the test.. She is now with the Lord and I am still mourning but not with a cigarette... Thank you Jesus!!!! Thank you EX-family!! I am continuing this journey... N.O.P.E.!!!! Love ya!!!! Pray for me and I will pray for you!!!
