Today I have officially made it to a year without a cigarette! At the beginning of my journey I had no confidence that I could make it this far. I took it day by day, sometimes minute by minute. I had given nicotine so much control over every part of my life. The best thing about my quit isn’t the money I’ve saved or the extra time I have now or not stinking. IT’S THE FREEDOM! I am free from the chains that held me captive for so long, not allowing me to live my life. I feel so blessed to have made it to the other side and I can say with confidence that I will never go back to that dark place again!
