One Month

Today marks one month of being nicotine free! Hooray!

Every day has its challenges, of course, especially when something stressful happens, but I never doubt that I made the right decision when I stopped. And truthfully, it's hardly been the nightmare I was so worried it would be. As long as I keep reminding myself that I'm not giving anything up but rather gaining freedom from a deadly drug addiction, and as long as I remain calm and occupied, it's actually a lot easier than I thought.

I feel a million times better, I have more energy, I'm not a slave to a dangerous drug anymore, and more money stays in my wallet. It's kind of win-win.
