25 days without a smoke today

$346.70 saved (well ... spent on fun stuff)

Happy kids (they were holding anti smoking protest rallies at the Woolies smoke counter for the 3 weeks before I gave up) Seriously embarrasing.

Happy wife - I promised her I would give up by our wedding day. We got married 14 years ago.

Happy workplace - I can't believe how much I was stinking the office out - seriously foul.

More productive - It's amazing how much more I can get done at work and at home each day without 2 smoke breaks an hour. At say 8 minutes each, that was a quarter of my day day (a quarter of my life) wasted on bugger all.

Happy Me! - Today I am a better person than I was 26 days ago.
