NanceXToo Posted January 29, 2011 Share Posted January 29, 2011 (edited) January 18th was my six year anniversary of quitting smoking :) Time Smoke Free: 2201 days, 12 hours, 21 minutes, and 23 seconds Cigarettes NOT Smoked: 77,053 :svengo: Lifetime Saved: 19 months, 18 days, 14 hours Money Saved: $11,560.50 (If only I had literally saved it all this time and had access to it now! :D) So, happy (belated) "quit-smoking" anniversary, to me! :party: Gone are the days of smelly clothes, wasting money, freezing my butt off outside just to have a cigarette, not being able to make it through a movie or a restaurant dinner without obsessing over wanting a cigarette, feeling my lungs struggle to take in a good, deep breath at night, worrying about whether I was going to get lung cancer and leave my kids without a mother, feeling guilty for being a bad influence on my kids and so on and so forth... Yeah, quitting smoking was probably the best thing I've ever done for myself. If you are also a former smoker who managed to quit, kudos to you, too! If you are a smoker who is thinking about quitting but hasn't yet been able to--- you CAN! If I could, you can! (I smoked nearly two packs a day for years). It's not easy in the beginning- but it DOES get easier. And it's SO worth it. Check out quitnet.com and good luck to you! If you never smoked to begin with- good job, you're a lot smarter than I was. LOL. ETA: My husband quit about four months after I did, btw. He'll have 6 years in May. :) Edited January 29, 2011 by NanceXToo Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
