As I begin my second day of freedom I am becoming more aware of the benefits of not smoking. Everything from my prior quit attempt is coming back to me now. Not having to have a cigarette after my coffee. Not smelling of smoke. Not coughing or trying to stop coughing so I can inhale everything except the oxygen I need, not having to rush about my morning to make sure I have that last fix before I go to work, kissing my husband on the mouth instead of the cheek because I don't want him to smell the smoke on my breath, and so many more. As I moved further in my journey during the almost three months of freedom I recognized and appreciated all that I gained. But, I can't go back. I can only move ahead and use all of the wonderments I mentioned above and more to make this my forever quit. A couple of rough moments, but that was all they were. My life was not in danger because I had a sudden urge or thought. My life was actually lengthened because I didn't smoke. I am happy to be back and blogging again. I am happy to be back and communicating with everyone in the community. And I am just happy. Thanks.
