    Happy New Year, SHL.ca community!
    We hope you all had a restful and enjoyable holiday season.
    January is often a time to reflect on change for the year ahead.
    Do you have any New Years resolutions?

    Hi Sarah,

    Happy New Year to you, too!

    I have been trying to lose weight and exercise more, and that is what I am going to continue to do in the New Year.  I have faith that I will be successful, but it's just going to take some time.  The most important thing, though, is that now, I no longer smoke.  That has to be one of my biggest accomplishments ever.

    You know what, Marianne?  Staying smoke free is my reward in and of itself.  Because I no longer carry the guilt around with me that I used to.  I realize that smoking caused a lot of stress in my life, and now all of that is gone.

    I did take advantage of a half price sale for a weight loss plan, though, because I have put on some unwanted weight.  And I figure, with the money I have saved from not smoking, I can indulge in certain little things that I want.  I am also planning to take a trip to Mexico in February, which will be my first major trip as a non-smoker.  So exciting!

    Hello, I am developing my quit plan and my quit date is Feb.1st. I have a lot of fear but realize this fear has kept me smoking this long. I am 40yrs old and started smoking when I was 15yrs old. I am going to use Champix and have the script ready to start taking it Jan.18th. I am going to use all the supports I can and walk through my fear with courage and hopefully some grace!
