Smile Milestone Day

Well, I never thought I'd make it this long to be able to post this, but as of today, January 7, 2009, I have been smoke-free for a full year after being a pack-and-a-half-a-day smoker for 22+ years (and as I'm about to turn 41, that's over half my life up to now). It really feels good to no longer be a slave to the nicotine.

Best of all, by a very rough estimate, and based on my former pack-and-a-half-a-day habit, I figure I've saved about $1,500 - $2,000 in the last year by not smoking as well.

I commend you Gary.....even though I have never been a smoker, I have enough family members who are. And have watched them struggle with this nasty addiction. You're strong, you'll be fine.

I've tried really hard to quit and was successful for a few weeks, but with all of the stressors in my life, it's almost impossible to give up my crutch right now. I am going to try again when my life calms down.

Thank you, Gary, for all of the encouragement and support you have and are continuing to give me to kick the coffin nails to the curb once and for all!

Any time, Marianne - remember, never give up! I also have full confidence that you will kick them!
