So Glad

I grew up around smokers. I remember hating the smell so much. My mother smoked when she was pregnant with me. I was born with Pneumonia. I breathed in 2nd hand smoke my whole life, until finally I realized that if I couldn't get away from it, I might as well do it myself. Well, I smoked for 7 years, but that was long enough to get me hooked. I just HAD to stop one day. I was dating a non-smoker that I really liked, and figured he might not want to kiss me. So I said one day,"I'm done". I've been "done" ever since. I'm done with him too, but that's a whole new experience...Quitting was not easy, I had a mantra, "I've made it this far, why would I F*k it up now?" I said it over and over and over in my head with each minute that passed. I had crazy food cravings, felt like I couldn't form sentences properly, and couldn't sleep, but it was SO worth it. I hate cigarettes more now than i ever have.
