365 days smoke free

$10,670 saved

6,600 cigarettes not smoked

Feel amazing.

Lots more energy.

Wife says I rarely snore anymore.

Finally deciding to give up was one of the best decisions of my life. If youve just started on your journey then I wish you well and encourage you to stay strong. Theres a better life on the other side of smoking

    I wished i could have stayed completely steadfast in my decision to remain off the smokes at your age (0nly 9 years your senior).
    NOPE is our choice.
    If I hadnt started that smoking again?

    I probably would still have my left lung to FULLY INHALE and exhale to its complete capacity>?
    Thankfully, I have my right lung working overtime in-leu just fine.
