To say that "I'm quitting" implies that I'm giving something up. Instead, I'm taking my life back.
It's not a habit, it's an addiction, and should be treated as such. I threw away a brand new pack I bought this afternoon, and $30 worth of Nicorette.
I just smoked my last one. And it was awful. I'm done.
All thanks to this man.
Also, several years ago, someone said to me, "I hope you quit smoking; I want you to be somebody's grandpa someday." I've never forgotten that.
