9 years ago today I stopped smoking and this is the best move I ever made. Never thought I could do it but I did. For 45 years, give or take a few years, I smoked. Beginning this nasty habit when I was very young and not knowing what it was life like without smoking, life consisted of matches or lighters, ash trays, cigarettes, and finding a place to smoke. When the time came to stop I remember what others said that you’ll always think about smoking, well that’s not true. At this time of my life I never think about smoking especially after seeing a sign $8.36 for a pack of cigarettes! 

I stopped Cold Turkey, this was not easy for me, I would eat Pasta and anything that I wanted. After a while I found I packed on 10 lbs and just taken that off. What I first sensed after a few weeks is my skin became more sensitive. Feeling much better about myself I know that I will never smoke, not even a puff. So, much success with your quit, if I can do it so can you. S. Sweet
