    Happy holiday to everyone!!! 

    Not in my wildest dreams did I think I'd quit smoking. ...but look at me go! 

    I remember counting - day 1, not smoking, day 2, 3....7 (1 week), 2 weeks, got really jarred at my non 1 month (Mar 6-Feb 6 is NOT 1 month, cause this yr has only 28 gdays...grrr)...and so, I've been counting only days - with the occasional glimpse of what months look like lol. 
    My # of days are - 320 = 10.5 months. 

    I am super excited about my 1 yr anniversary ..45 more days til then....and tomorrow will be 44. 

    I am not liking the smell as much, sometimes it smelt "good", but those times are less n less. And as for being outside, I'm glad I don't HAVE to be outside, it's a choice - I can recognize cold smokers lol.  My taste buds still surprise me - good and not so good. I love the burst of flavour surprise, and still surprising when something doesn't so good anymore. 
    There's a lot of differences being a non smoker..for me, it's the little differences, the ones taken for granted ( me & singing..waiting for my partner to finish smoking{time} and the mess in car from missing the ashtray)....
    Being a non smoker is really kinda cool!!  ....a lot of reasons to look forward  to freedom of choice and liberation'
    I intend to stay warm n dry this holiday, while others need to go for unfresh air
    I will wake up  to day -44
