If I can do it - Anyone can

Posted in Staying quit 05 May 2022

Today Is Day 914. I have banked every cent it would cost me to buy smokes. Last year I bought a brand new Kia Sportage with the money. All cash. Today Im going to have porcelain veneers to get rid of my yukky yellow teeth. Getting excited about what to plan with the next lot of savings. Look at the reward - besides the fact I can breathe now too, my first brand new car in 57 years... now Im going to look fabulous too. you can do it

    If only we had the wisdom years ago , eh?

    I am so proud of your accomplishment and am only sorry that we can't actually see the new fabulous you! I am hoping that your post will inspire others to make change and be what they can be!

    I can tell that you are so happy , and when we are happy, we are not ever going to slip back into that evil trap again. I never have cravings and I will bet that you never do either. What lies we fell for!

    Hi dstfry. Fantastic rewards for a job well done. I haven't bought a car after nearly 7 years, but know I have saved nearly half a Lamborghini. To think, once we would have happily tossed all that money into an ash tray. Enjoy knowing you can splurge on yourself with no guilt.
