Drum roll please....I am tobacco-free for 18 months! Hip hip hooray!!!
Being a non-smoker feels freakin' awesome!
e-Cigs helped just enough to take the edge off. They didn't completely take away the urges but they helped.
After 4 to 6 weeks of the e-cig, I weaned myself off it. Then, every time I thought of smoking I did 10 pushups or went for a run or ate natural popcorn. I forced myself to think about replacing cigarette smoking with a healthier behavior.
More than a year later, I can't imagine going back to smoking. The idea of paying someone to kill me is repugnant. I can't stand the way it smells. I LOVE that when I run I'm not held back by my lungs.
Life without smoking is freedom. I am never, ever going back. Bucket List Item #28 complete!!
