    So I am coming up on 7000 cigarettes not smoked - in 10.5 months!

    SEVEN THOUSAND.....that just seems like such a huge number of cigarettes. 

    No wonder I feel better and can breathe now.

    Hi atp,
    31,350 not smoked.  Well over 1/2 Million smoked over my lifetime (embarasing!).  I think the important thing for us all to remember is - we cannot change the past.  We can only control what we do today..........and today, we choose not to smoke.

    wimporswim,

    No, we can't change the past, but we can change what we do now and in the future. By quitting we can celebrate all those cigarettes not smoked and appreciate what we actually accomplished. 

    BTW - 31350!!!!! Huge savings for you there. 

    Amazing that so many of us could break free of smoking.

    Hi atp,

    Wow, 7,000 cigs not smoked.  Isn't that amazing?  You know, that was the stat that I think meant the most to me, and still does, because it just blows my mind how many cigarettes we actually smoke.  At this point, I have saved myself from smoking over 26,000 cigarettes.  Holy cow.  It's a wonder we could breathe at all as smokers.  Our bodies are truly a marvel.

    Congratulations, atp!  That rocks!
