I am grateful to my daughter, who has been a pillar of unconditional support and who patiently bore the brunt of my mood swings (I am NOT PROUD of this, I apologise once again my baby), yet congratulated me every time we came back from a fun outing, party or gathering without me having smoked. Family and friend support is very important, when the chips are down, they make you realise that you are strong and you can do it. Tomorrow I celebrate one year of not smoking and I am so chaffed about it. It is a year that I have experienced all different types of emotions, feeling of sadness, depression, joy, happiness, desperation to smoke, drooling not over a man, but someone else's smoke, but I survived. I hope I am in a position to share a positive story like this one, same time next year.
To all those wonderful people who are trying to quit or have quit already, hang in there you can do it. To all of their family and friends help them out by acknowledging their efforts, believe me it would mean a lot to them.
