Running the numbers: Number of cigarettes I would have smoked between April 3 and today, had I not stopped on that date: 9,000. *whew*
Amount of money saved: $1,605.00.
After going bowling (I KNOW) last Saturday, we stopped by the local bar that had sponsored the outing. And let me tell you, that was one smoke-filled bar.
I was not tempted.
I still want to smoke sometimes, especially when I'm stressed out, but now when I look at a smoky room I just think, "what was I doing to my lungs?" And smoke just smells chemical-ly now, not good. Oh, and I spent this morning taking dictation and listening to my boss (a smoker) cough. and cough. and cough. And then he'd light a cigarette.
I'm done. I've made it ten months, I can make it the rest of my life.
I can do it. I AM doing it.
