I was checking my mail and some of the other sites I use when I was reminded of something that changed my life forever.
Six years ago I was beginning my journey towards a life free of nicotine.
I wish I could remember that day and the ones that followed. I can't though.
I underwent a twelve hour surgery to bypass blockages in my coronary arteries. They thought it best to keep me in an induced coma in ICU for the next three days, so I have no memories of those first few days.
I was in and out of the hospital for the next month for complications that arose.
Then I found this site. I began my journey in earnest then.
My caravan was born on that day as I was already in NML.
Many of the people here aided my journey with their encouragement.
I had a buddy that was a day behind me. She followed my trail as I followed the trail left by those before me.
Some of the people that helped me so much are no longer with us. I will always treasure the wisdom those people passed on to me.
I want to thank each person that walked with me as I traveled my path to where I am today.
I made my journey as I tell each person that is beginning theirs.
One step at a time.
Congratulations to each and every traveler on your terrific milestone today. Keep your journey going strong.
The caravan continues on ......
One step, and then another, will get you to where you want to be.
