Okay so I checked the blog today and despite being a very finnicky poster, I have some how managed to land 1,999 hits! It's amazing! It makes me feel like someone actually thinks I can write! Hah. No seriously, I am still going strong on the quitting smoking front, and by the end of the month it will be...what...5 months? Crazy. And guess what? I'm even starting to physically feel better. I mean I'm still coughing but...it's not as bad as before...and I'm even getting some semblance of sleep,...even if it's not enough, it's better than the zero hours I was getting before.
Now I want to say something to the 2,000th reader (well...okay to everyone). Thank you for standing by me. It means a lot, and I appreciate you all. I really really do. Every mile stone I feel like I have to milk it because, I don't want to diminish the accomplishment of quitting, but I'm glad to know that even though to me it seems like it's gotten...dare I say "easy".... you still read this thing.
I will admit that there have been an increasing amount of days where I forgot how hard it was to quit. And it was hard. I just think back to the commuting posts I wrote when I started this thing... Crazy. But those of you that have been through this were right...it does get easier. And while I'm still sick, I am still willing to give the American Lung Association, the Surgeon General, my parents, friends and family the benefit of the doubt that eventually I will reap the health benefits of being smoke free.
Anyway, thanks again for sticking with me. Your love, support and good wishes really have been the cherry on top.
