It has been 41 days since I quit smoking. I never thought I would say that. I am very proud of myself right now. My self essteam just got a huge boost. But that is not why I am here this morning. I have some fantasic news. I went with my dad to pick up some things for the Super Bowl this past Sunday (disappointed by the way) , well snack foods wasn't the only thing he bought. He bough some of that nicoten gum. You better believe that I told him how proud of him I was for at least putting in some kind of effort into trying the quit. As far as I know he hasn't started yet but I didn't see him smoke yesterday.

   I believe that my quit has inspired my dad to quit. My mom has cut back on smoking but hasn't quit yet. My prediction. This house will be a smoke free home with in the next 6 months. I hope that I am right. Because I know that we will all feel so much better.

Remember, "It feels good to be a quitter."

Congratulations not only on your QUIT (41 days is awesome), but for the positive influence it's having on smokers around you!! 

41 days is big....soon you might start with the feeling of "I can have just one".....this is daaaaangerous times!!  "One" quickly becomes more often, before you even realize it you end up back where you started!!  STAY STRONG and continue this postive influence you've become!!

I am quite proud of myself as well. It just feels so good to not be chained down to anything doesn't it? It's extremely liberating!!


Although, you've had it a little tougher than I have... I don' tknow if I could have made it this far if I lived with other smokers.. WHEW!! So, go you!!
