    I'm so happy to be a non-smoker!

    Last Thursday, we had our firm Christmas party.  It was the first time in 30 years that I did not go outside to smoke.  Well, I did go out once with one of my friends so she could have a smoke.  I didn't smoke, and wasn't even the least bit tempted.  Nope, not me.  I just enjoyed the meal, had a few drinks, and danced the night away without gasping for air!  That had to be a first.

    People keep asking me how I quit, because my friends never thought they would see the day.  And quite frankly, neither did I.  But here I am, closing in on a year, and I am still smoke free and loving it.

    I wish all of you success in your journey.  I know it's hard in the beginning, but if you persevere, the rewards are astonishing!  I still can't believe how far I have come, and I've gotta admit, I am feeling pretty proud of myself!  BEING SMOKE FREE ROCKS!!!

    I’m so happy for you Treepeo.  You can enjoy yourself at a party without a smoke.  Something that I should be looking forward to.  At the party you showed that you were very committed to your decision not to smoke.  Having said that, I congratulate you.

    Hi treepeo, 
    What a great feeling that is.... to be free from nicotine, it sounds like you had a great time and stayed committed to your journey and you have also inspired carmpage to look forward to a time like this... 
    Congrats and keep up the good work!
