I smoked for over 20 years, but not any longer. I just hit day seven without a cigarette. That means that my body is now free of toxins and it's just a matter of will power. I have tried to stop smoking before and this is the longest I have ever gone without a cigarette. Then again, this is the first time that I have had a true reason to quit. I know that I will never have another cigarette. I know that I have quit smoking.
