Michael's adventure to being a non-smoker

Michael's seven months smoke free, and he's loving life!

I get some encouragement from people when I tell them I have 7 months off smoking.

It is nice to receive the encouragement. It was pretty easy for me to quit. I did attempt to quit about a year ago but only lasted 2 weeks. I have gone cold turkey. It's good I don't have to go outside anymore to have a cigarette. I eat more healthy meals now with the money I've saved from not buying cigarettes. I look up quit smoking websites regularly to keep me out of trouble. I think I'll live a lot longer now if I can keep up the good work.
