Thank you everyone for the kind words as I hit my one year mark yesterday. Time really went fast this past year - it seems like just a couple of months ago, I lit my last cigarette. Not hard to believe that I still get cravings, but after a year, I can pretty much ignore them.
This past year has had it's ups and downs. My father passed away in March and there are days when I think my heart will just break in two, but knowing he died of heart failure, smoking is just not an option. I also found out that we are going to be grandparents . Ahhh, the circle of life - one ends and one begins. Life is ever changing and nothing is worth lighting up again.
My husband and I have a trip to Texas to visit family and friends planned for later this week and all next week. It is our one year gift to ourselves. It's been a couple years since we've jetted off somewhere, so this is a bit of a treat.
Thank you to everyone on this site, even the newbies. I read your blogs and sympathize with your struggles and know that I just don't want to start over again. I like where I'm at. I feel good, I don't smell like cigarettes, I don't 'need' to smoke, and I don't 'want' to smoke. I am one year strong and finally walked thru that door to the 6% club!
