That is correct. It has been one year since I quit smoking.
I know people say “If I can do it then anyone can,” but I do not believe that is the case. I do not think I could have done it just because someone else has. Sure, I know people that overcame the addiction and they were a major source of inspiration but if all I had was inspiration, I would never have made it this far.
I don’t think I did it all alone. I think each and everyone who was rooting for me helped. All of you that read this silly little blog and leave me words of encouragement helped me to stay focused all year long. At the end of the day it is me alone looking at my 10 little piggies and patting myself on the back for making it another day smoke free but it is all of you that are in my thoughts all day long and that kept me going.
So it took me a year to quit smoking and now I am on track to lose some major poundage. I may have finally figured out that I have to focus on one change at a time. Trying to do it all at once does not work for someone like me.
I just want to thank you for reading my words and for supporting me either through comments or just silently rooting for me. Your support has not and will not go unnoticed.
Am I out of the water? I truly think so. I cannot imagine myself smoking ever again. I have never thought that before now but the fact is undeniable.
I am a non-smoker.
