I've gone over 5,000 cigarettes that I Have NOT smoked since I quit back in September 2007. This is such a HUGE Accomplishment for me, that after 36 years of smoking that I was able to quit with the help of a medication called CHANTIX and with the support of blogging friends I met during the early days of my quit. This is such a Wow thing.

If someone had told me this time last year that I wouldn't be smoking a year later I would have laughed myself silly - I loved smoking, loved it, loved the process of walking outside, sitting back and lighting up. I went through the motions more than 20 times a day for 36 years and all I can say is......"YOU DUMB ASSED BITCH, WHAT WERE YOU THINKING?"
My quit is still hard, I still have triggers and some are worse than others and sometimes an entire day is rough but with the help of these same people, I make it, one day at a time.
I'm thrilled as the days and weeks and months pass but what really impresses me is the sheer number of cigarettes that I Have NOT smoked - it floors me, bowls me over, I never realized how much I was smoking..........I can estimate the number of cigarettes I Did Smoke at around 259,000 cigarettes - Yes you're reading that correctly, more than a quarter of a million cigarettes this Dumb Assed Bitch Smoked.
NEVER AGAIN, not even 1 because I know that it will only take 1 to take me back to that pack plus a day habit.
