Freedom 550

Posted in Quit experiences 12 May 2020

My how time flies. 18 months since that day I looked into bettering my health and decided to quit smoking. Sites like iCanQuit are so helpful with hints, insight and support from people just like you! We can all help each other to achieve what we once thought to be impossible. To be free of the slavery of a vile drug known as nicotine. Having won freedom and chosing my path forward are a measure of how much I truly value life. Don't wait for that stroke to change your world and vision. Perhaps, quitting smoking gave me the edge on my recovery and the belief that I could . Positivity is everything. You are stronger than you think!
