At 53 I am smoke free!!!

I am in week 11 of my smoke free life. For 38 years I was a smoker. It has been tough and very lonely without them. My motivation was my deteriorating health. And once I gave up I was determined to beat the addiction. I was damned if I was going allow something else continue to control me. Everyday I gain strength competing with this addiction. My best giving up moment was waking up and feeling and tasting my lips. Sounds weird but as a smoker they were always tasteless. It is tough but I'll be damned if I will let the addiction win.
