~ Yay ....

.... me!!!!
Twenty years ago I decided to do something
that would change my life.
Something that I was afraid to do.
Something that I knew I had to do.
Something that I should have done sooner.
Twenty years ago
I became
One year after quitting my risk of coronary heart disease
was 1/2 that of a smoker's.
10+ years after quitting my risk of lung cancer death
was 1/2 that of a smoker's
15+ years after quitting my risk of stroke and coronary heart disease
is that of a non smoker!!!!
I am patting myself on the back!!!
I am taking deep breaths
and not coughing!!!
I taste things differently.
I smell things differently.
I have more $$$ in my pockets.
Yay me!!!!!!
Now, excuse me while I kiss the sky!!!!

  5. yeah you is right....I quit way back in 1977 because I got pnemonia and it hurt like hell, so I took advantage of the situation and quit...never regretted that decision. Now, where is all that money I saved??? Congrats!!
