I am proud to say that I am "Free and Healing for Nine Days, 2 Hours and 39 Minutes, while extending my life expectancy 15 Hours, by avoiding the use of 182 nicotine delivery devices that would have cost me $47.85." (My smokes here in the great state of Michigan were 5.25/pack.) Wow! Almost 50 bucks! I honestly didn't think I could ever quit smoking. I feel so much better now. I am going to start running again. I can't wait. (Although, it will be on my treadmil because it is cold outside) I still get a few urges for a smoke, but I get past it without smoking. Joel was right, life goes on without smoking. I have been smoking for 10 years, and I am 27 years old. I want to live a long and healthy life for my three children. Thank you Joel for investing your time and effort into us. I never understood any of the addiction stuff until I read Joel's journals. Thank God I did.
Thanks Joel for a wonderful 9 days and lots more to come!!
