Three YEARS Smoke Free

I cannot believe that I quit smoking three years ago. WOW! I was thinking today how hard it was to quit and how I never in a million years thought I would actually really quit. For those of you who didn't know me then, I was a hard core smoker. I would wake up in the middle of the night to go OUTSIDE to smoke. I would plan out things to make sure I could smoke. I didn't do a lot of things because I couldn't smoke and do them. Even time was wasted that could have been spent with my family because I didn't want to not smoke to do things with them. I would shower many times in a day to avoid smelling like smoke. Such silly things for such a stupid habit.

I am SO happy today to realize that I conquered such a huge thing. It was hard, and I did it. I can't even imagine being a smoker now, and I never in a million years could have been a runner, swimmer, biker triathlete like I am becoming now if I still smoked. So, here's to life. :)
