It’s my 2 year anniversary of quitting smoking
I was a pack a day smoker for 14 years. I quit the week we went into Covid lockdown but that’s not why I quit.
The hardest part was accepting that I was going to start actively choosing life. I never thought I’d live past 12 years old.
I didn’t want to be here and if I was going to forced to, I would at least help speed the process.
Well 2 years ago I chose to stop chasing death and be present not only for my friends and family but also myself.
It’s been a jarring experience but here I am. I’m actively in therapy. I started working out, lost 30lbs and my doctor is no longer concerned about me being pre-diabetic.
I haven’t had any heartburn. My anxiety has significantly decreased, and gums don’t bleed at the dentist anymore.
Happy 2 year anniversary to my new life.
- Happy anniversary. I hope life is treating you well. That’s super impressive
- Way to go, OP!! You deserve to love your life.
- I quit 3 years ago after being a pack a day smoker for over 30 years. I still crave it today. But I’m not going back. Props for staying quit!!
