3 weeks ago I had my last drag on my last smoke. 3 weeks ago I couldn't afford to pay my bills, 3 weeks ago I couldn't sit through an entire game of monopoly with my big kids or chase my toddler in the back yard without stopping for a smoke break or 10. 3 weeks ago I felt down and out and 1 phone bill away from potential homelessness.
I clung to those smokes like they were my only friend, the only thing on this planet that understood and had my back. If only I could of seen the way they stole from me, sabotaged my success in life and jeapordised my relationships with my loved ones.
In 3 short weeks I am up to date with my bills, I have food in my cupboards and all the time in the world to be with my kids and truly be present in there lives.
Quitting didn't just help me and it didn't just help my kids the domino effect has now reached to those I don't even know personally. With all my extra money I was able to donate to the Stanthorpe fire victims and just now my children and I have completed the process to sponsor a child through the smith family. I always said that if I could afford it I would give to those less fortunate. My fortune didn't come from a winning lotto ticket but from my own desire to not live that way anymore and now I get to keep my promise to help some one else. I can't wait to see how far my domino effect will reach.
