In two years, I haven't smoked 10,000 cigarettes, a quite astounding number when you multiply it by years...

2 years is AWESOME!  It’s both amazing and disgusting that 10,000 cigs could be smoked in 2 years!

Congratulations and keep the NOPE!

Thanks, Susan. I never thought that I'd be one of those "people," but I can't stand the smell of smoke now. A few smokers have passed on in my apartment building in the last 2 years. I could see them going from better to worse in that short time period. I'm really grateful that I quit.

Nice job!! Now you have an 80% chance of staying quit for life. It's such a HUGE ACHEIVEMENT nothing beats this. It proves that we actually can make big time changes and the routine of the quit can be used for other behaviors we want to change. I know that I sure learned what "Patience with the Process" really meant. One day at a time brought you to this point in your life. Congratulations - you sure proved that you are no sissy!

People on social media say to never give up. Well, I gave up drinking 17 years ago, gave up taking Xanax 25 years ago, and gave up smoking 2 years ago. I'm a quitter!

Thanks for your response, Debbie! ♥
