After weeks of thinking about it and being tired of not being able to breathe, I've decided to quit smoking. Today is Day 1 of a smoke-free life. I'm excited about it. I've smoked off and on for about three years now. So this will be a big change.
I actually managed to get some incentive going as well. Two people offered to buy me a lunch and dinner if I can stay off the death sticks through the new year. I could do it without the incentive, but now I have something to look forward to.
The only problem with quitting is the fact that every where I go I am surrounded by smokers. The temptation isn't that overwhelming, but it's still there. I know in the long run I will benefit in more ways than I will realize.
Hmm..Maybe I should change my profile picture since smoke is encompassing my head.
Anyway, here's to long life and fresh air!
