I never want to return to the slavery of the dreaded nicotine poison so each morning I wake up thankful that I quit smoking because I never want to go back to getting out of bed pouring my first coffee grabbing my cancer sticks and sitting outside no matter what the weather is smoking 5 or 6 cigarettes along with 4 or 5 coffees, coughing, choking and nearly horking up a lung and at times it felt like I might hork up both but I would still smoke, whew it's super fantastic since quitting. I had Mason all wk after school and he spent last night so I got him up and drove him to school now that I'm an Exer I don't need to get up an hour earlier to get my nicotine fix and rush Mason to get himself ready while I sneak out for another Smoke or 2, he now has my full attention and we talk and laugh and make getting ready for school as enjoyable as possible, I quit smoking 1,061 days ago nearly 35 months ago, I did it for my health so I could hopefully be around a few years longer for my family and friends but mostly so I can be around to watch the grandchildren grow up and enjoy as much quality time with them while they want to hang out with the old foggies, actually Adam at 13, Emma at 14 already prefer hanging out with their friends and that's normal but I know they're happy that gram & gramp quit smoking so we'll enjoy Mason at the age of 8 for as long as we can and right now he enjoys hanging out with the old foggies, so I say Smoke free is the only life for you and for me because life is so much better without a cigarette in hand, remember the reasons why you are quitting or why you have quit and keep stacking up those precious smoke free days. Here's the clan and here's Emma her Dad and me.
