Well I am a non-smoker

and while it is rough it is not half as bad as it has been in previous attempts. I keep the book handy so when I get a real strong urge to smoke I whip it open to my favorite, what I feel most encouraging chapter and read it.

I must say it has been amazing today. I had smoked for 22 years. Today was the first day I can remember that I have not coughed one time. My husband smokes and he reaks! Can't believe that I smelled liked that and never, ever noticed! Yuck!

Also I have been having problems with my voice. It's been fading in and out for the past couple months. Today my voice has been normal, not one fade!

This is awesome! While it is rough in spots the benefits that I am seeing already far outweigh the urge to light one up. After all non-smokers don't smoke and I am now a non-smoker! Yay for me!


  1. Congrats on your first day of success!

  2. Oh congratulations! Just stick to it and it will get easier. And yes, all smokers reak terribly!
