5 Years no cigarettes this month.


Been meaning to post this since the 5th. Apparently my lazy procrastinating life is sneaking into my sobriety as well. However I'm happy to be 5 years without a cigarette.

Well done ! It's hard to sit next to someone reeking of cigarette carnage these days. What an incredibly stupid thing to do - amazing when we get to the other side how perspective changes.

Congratulations! Looking forward to being able to make that same statement. Today is three weeks for me.

Good for you and your lungs, etc.

It's a relief to know I was able to finally get away and stay away from smoking cigarettes...though, it took me a long time to get to the point of daily commitment to not light up. It's been helpful that fellow smokers in my family and, as well, others I spend time with have quit smoking. It also helps that smoking is very restricted in public areas where I live. Believe it or not, at one time many years ago, I could light up and smoke on the job...and that job was (an office setting) in a hospital!
