Day 196! 4 more days!!!!

Hey everyone! I hope all is well out there. I'm at work right now so I will make this quick. Later today I will be taking my butt to the park, and running my 4 miles. I've been doing that routinely for about a week now,and i'm feeling ALIVE! I quit smoking cigarettes 2 weeks ago...so I have a NEW kind of energy that needs to be released. I must say though, I never thought i'd quit. The first 3 days sucked so hardcore, but now i'm getting used to it.

What's on your agenda today? Anything interesting?

Congrats Ashley on your sobriety and freedom from cigarettes. Way to go! I can tell you 2 of the greatest accomplishments of my life are sobriety and ceasing smoking! 27 years sober and 16 years free of cigarettes! And at this stage, it is almost like I never smoked! All the emotional triggers for both alcohol and cigarettes are long gone. Now, as far as running, if I attempted to run 4 miles MY Butt would be dead! Way to go on that also!

Congrats, soon 200. And huge congrats on quitting smoking. Dh and I redid our insurance and the difference between using tobacco in the last 12 months and not was $120 a month and that is only a half million in insurance. I wish I had never started or started again and quit again... I am counting down the days until that premium drops. She gave me the grand total, I was like I don't want to buy the brokerage lol
Way to go on your accomplishments.

Wonderful job, Ashley! I am house/dog sitting this week so I get a break from my roommates and can hang with my doggie pal Zoe. Loving my 27 months of sobriety! Keep up the brilliant work.

Well done At what point do you feel you won't be posting in 'newcomers' forum? Just wondering as you seem to be cracking this so well.

I didn't realize there were other options of forums to post. I like to come on here to promote positivity to the newbies, and to show them that sobriety isn't so bad. I think i'll continue on here for quite a while.

Great job on 196 day! I was never a regular smoker, but I have heard it is an achievement to quit on them.
