I wanted to make the jubilant annual “still not smoking” entry. Neither of us has had a single puff for 6 years now! (and how wonderful it was to enter this pregnancy clean lunged and smoke free instead of quitting mid hormonal rampage while guilt tripping for not knowing).
$20,000+ hasn’t gone up in stinky smoke and I’ve felt healthier than I have in years… I can’t imagine trying to get into the exercise I’ve embraced with sketchy breathing.
Kudos and the very best of luck to all of you still trying to hammer this beast off their list – it’s so hard, but one of the most worthwhile goals you can accomplish for yourself and the people that love you, you’ll have more years to do more of the things you want to as well.
