WooHoo! Congratulations on being smoke free for 2 months. That is AWESOME!!!
I love how you talk about your smoker friends not giving in, "nor will I as a quitter". That's the spirit! Let me tell you something. I used to hang around with two of my sisters who smoke. When I decided to quit, they were not supportive at all. I hate to say it, but I think that secretly they wanted me to fail, so that they could say, "See, she couldn't do it and neither can I". But I WAS successful and I DID do it. And even though I smoked for over 43 years, I realized that it is never too late to quit. And I find myself feeling sorry for my sisters for not even wanting to give quitting a try.
Don't you enjoy waking up in the morning and not having smoke mouth? And not coughing your guts out? And knowing that you don't reek of smoke? Once you have quit for a while, you realize how many poisons you were inhaling and how it affected your body. Eeew, I don't miss that at all.
You should be really proud of yourself, mjy-w. Keep up the good work. You are doing great!
