4 years how time passes

avatar-icon
4 years…. Not sure if it feels like a long time or short time. Guess that depends from which point of view I look at it. It’s certainly been an emotional, crazy, extremely stressful but also ecstatically happy time.

Most of you won’t know who I am – am not on quitline often. Sometimes just take a quick peek.

Quitline and the wonderful people blogging here (some of which are very dear personal friends now) was what helped me through the dark times. I’m not going through details as this part is now behind me. I was in a very dark place but not anymore. Life is still not a piece of cake but, I do have help from the kindest, sweetest person I’ve ever met and if I start dwelling on the past he will push me towards the now.

Sometimes it is hard, we have stressful times (and believe me I KNOW and know lots of people that KNOW)… but nothing justifies picking up a filthy cigarette and undo all that effort you put into your quit. It’s not worth it. Nothing is worth killing yourself slowly with this disgusting habit.

Take good care of yourselves.

Lots of love & hugs

Wahoo My last badge

There you go! Last badge - $10k saved :) Would have reached it earlier if I would have adjusted the price of packs but didn't want to.

Hope my quit family is well - stay strong. Nothing is worth picking up the filthy fags.

Have a fantastic day.

Lots of love & hugs

Inspiration

avatar-icon
Every now and then we have a story in the blogs where people say they inspired somebody to do something (maybe quit smoking, maybe something else).... Thing is... you never know when you might inspire someone - I certainly had no idea ... until today. Had a work colleague come up to me and tell me that I inspired her to take her daughter mountain biking (easy tracks)... inspired by me talking about my adventures, with my kids, chasing waterfalls. How nice is that :) Was very flattered.

Guess what I'm trying to say (as my special person said to me): You never know what influence any of us may have for the good on anyone. So, if you think you are nothing special or have nothing to share (like I did)... know that you ARE important and you never know, you might inspire or have inspired somebody, you just don't know it.

Have a fantastic evening.

Love & hugs
