What a great feeling. As I continue on my journey towards freedom from smoking I am, gratefully, learning new things about myself as well as enjoying things I took for granted. From time to time now, not as often as it was at first, I get an icky feeling. Just as I stepped out of the shower this morning I took a big breathe and realized that a good hot shower in the morning did many things for me. It not only made me feel clean, but it renewed my commitment to myself. One of the benefits that I put on my reasons for quitting list was not smelling of cigarettes. Although it was not first on my list like health it was on there. I feel refreshed and ready to enjoy my day whatever it brings. I have washed away yesterday and am happy about a brand new day of freedom.
