Today marks two years since I broke my drug addiction to nicotine! I’m as surprised as anyone that I made it this long after twenty years of smoking regularly. I can’t say it’s always been easy, but it’s been empowering as hell to know I beat it.
I’ve been lucky, too. There’s no indication of lung cancer, emphysema, or debilitating lung damage. Probably, I quit just in time, but I still have a year or two to go before I can be considered fully in the clear. (Apparently, one’s risk of developing lung cancer continues for a few years after quitting. That’s how rough this stuff is.)
Also, by my calculations, I’ve saved nearly $6,000!
