Who says I'm keeping track, ha ha! ;-)
So glad to be back here to post that I recently celebrated 2 years smober!
There have been some struggles, but I've been able to remember why I'm doing this.
Just last month I got a recent diagnosis of COPD. It surprised me/didn't surprise me. Made me sad and ashamed that I did this to myself. But also gave me the gift of deeply knowing that I cannot ever smoke again. NOPE.
I believe that if we want this MORE than we want to smoke, we can do this. But we have to be honest with ourselves and find those reasons, and not kid ourselves that just knowing will make it easy. But I can attest - it does get easier!!!! WAAAAAYY easier!!
This forum was a godsend for me my first several months. Stay close and you will see.
