2 Years — Smoke Free


Most people who know me nowadays — who didn’t know me before — have a hard time picturing me smoking a cigarette —

The truth is that I was not only a smoker, I was a deeply committed smoker — one that loved smoking from the minute they woke up, until the minute they went to sleep.  2 packs a day.  Here I am enjoying a smoke in my backyard —

2 years ago today, around 9:30 on the morning of January 28, 2009 — I quit for good.

At 2 packs a day, over 2 years, it’s resulted in a savings of $11,680.

Eleven thousand dollars!

I’m not going to preach to anyone — you know the reasons why you need to quit.  You either will, or you won’t.


All I want to say is this —

If I can quit, then anyone can quit.

    Congratulations —— you past a major hurdle. I, too, was an addicted cigarette smoker. I woke up; I lite up. The only time I didn’t smoke was when the smoking law was inacted and banned smoking at the office desk. It was November of 1998 and I attended a 2-day seminar on quitting sponsored by my employer; yes, I was hypmotized and from that time until now I’ve been smoke free.
    GOOD JOB ED KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK. Woodhaven needs you.
