Hi all, today is my 15th day of being a non smoker and I can't believe it. I would like to thank the EX community for helping. I found this site when I was searching for others that share this problem. Even though I have come to this site for the last 2 weeks I have only read members blogs and questions. Just knowing I wasn't alone helped me so much.
I wanted to share something that happened yesterday that made my commitment to be a non smoker for ever stronger.
Since my son was 4 years old it has been just him and I. I am so proud of this young man who is now 22 years old and he is my reason for everything I do. Yesterday on my 2 week anniversary he wakes up early (he works nights so waking up at 6 in the morning is very early for him) and gives me a big hug and said "Mom it is 2 weeks today and I am so PROUD of you, I love you" I said thank you and l love you too. I then left for work and cried all the way to work thinking how awesome that was and how proud I am of myself that I have made it this far. I am also so proud of this young man. He has been through so much and had come through it with a couple of little scars. (physically and emotional)
Let me tell you all I didn't think I could do it. I used to freak out when I went to conferences for work and my first thought was ok where do I go for a cigarette. You all know scoping out the new territory.
Thank you all for just being here when I need to make sure I am not the only one in this position. As I continue on my journey I will be here and if anyone needs a helping hand on their journey mine is extended.
