Can't miss another Quitaversary! 26 Months Smoke Free!

Sunday, October 24, 2010

Didn't get to post my last Quitaversary email, so I couldn't miss another one. It seems since I quit this last month was a hard one to get through... not sure why, but I did really want to smoke this month. Of course I didn't and I won't ever but I would be lying if I sat here and acted like I never wanted to. This will be a battle that I will have to fight everyday for the rest of my life and while it might be hard that's ok. Everyday that I can say I didn't smoke is worth the fight!
Thank you for another wonderful email! emoticon

Your Quit Date is: Saturday, August 23, 2008 at 12:00:00 PM
Test Time Smoke-Free: 790 days, 17 hours, 14 minutes and 17 seconds
Cigarettes NOT smoked: 11861
Lifetime Saved: 3 months, 14 hours
Money Saved: $2,752.68


You've made it! A whole 26 months without a cigarette! In that time, you've successfully navigated the physical chaos of withdrawal, the emotional highs and lows of early quit, and the pitfalls of relapse!

Countless times you've refused the offered cigs. More times than that you've craved nicotine, but opted for health, instead. You've endured teasing, lack of support, and feeling uncomfortable and out of place among smokers. You may have had issues with weight, anger, tension or sadness, but still you stayed SMOKE-FREE!

You're adjusting to a whole new lifestyle. You're already thinking different thoughts. You've changed habits and routines. You've made new friends and, perhaps, let go of some old ones. You're starting to realize the benefits of living a SMOKE-FREE life. More and more, you see yourself as a non-smoker. We hope you're as proud of you as we are.

And while you've been doing all this for yourself, you've been helping everyone here at the Q: your membership in our community, whether active or passive, has demonstrated an ongoing support of the efforts of all of us. We hope you stay with us as you continue your SMOKE-FREE journey to a fuller, richer, healthier life.

    In German, there is a saying from a book everyone has read, ...
    "Klein aber o-ho!" translates roughly to "small, but WOW!"
    Qitting may seem a small thing but wow is it huge!
    Hope you really are proud of yourself and making everybody around hug you in agreement!
