Wow, I can't believe it has been four years already. Good for you! You put your mind to it and now you are a non-smoker.
Instead of being tempted by your new friend who smokes, just remember how lucky you are that you realized you needed to change your life, and how hard you worked to achieve your goal. You listed so many reasons why quitting was the best decision you could make. Keep moving forward. Don't let someone else's bad decisions influence you. You have come to far to blow it now.
I am grateful every day that I was able to quit when I did. It has now been over five years, and I still believe that quitting was one of the best decisions I have ever made. Today was a hot and humid day. If I were still a smoker, I would have been gasping for breath. But my breathing was fine today, thank goodness. And that is because I chose to quit all those years ago.
I am really happy that you stuck with it, chartippybum. You should be so proud of yourself. Embrace being a non-smoker. It is the best way to live!
