...of being smoke-free!
I bet you weren't expecting that, huh? And I bet some of you are really surprised that I was ever a smoker to being with. But I was. For many years.
There was a time when smoking was very popular, even encouraged. It was socially acceptable and people smoked everywhere. During my teen years you were more likely to take up smoking than not. And having spent the majority of my life (so far) in a province with the highest rate of smokers, your chances skyrocketed. So I foolishly joined the crowd, became addicted and ended up regretting it.
But ten years ago today, I decided I'd had enough. I kicked the smoking habit to the curb and have never looked back since. It was one of the best decisions I've ever made in my life.
Ten glorious smoke-free years. Yay, me!
