I quit mainly for health reasons - after 37 years of smoking I knew it was way past time to stop doing damage to my body. I do feel better -
sleep better - think better - work better - and for the first time in many years I can breathe deeply - all the way to the bottom of my lungs. But on the way to here I discovered an unexpected bonus -
I have become more "aware". I live in the moment more often - I experience a range of emotions "naturally". I just feel "more me" - the person I was supposed to be -the one who got hijacked by nicotine 37 years ago. The path back to the real me was "simple" (not always easy but always simple) - just NTAP (never take another puff) one day at a time.
