9 Years Quit
I'm celebrating my 10th Blogiversary on the First Day of Spring! To mark the occasion, which totally blows my mind, I thought I'd share TEN for TEN.
SEVEN - I QUIT!
According to a website that's not Quitnet (I can't get them to recognize me!):
I've been smoke free for 3287 days!
That's 65,739 cigarettes NOT smoked (at least).
502 days lifetime saved (approx. 1 year, 4.5 months).
That's 502 days more I get to spend with this guy:
As always (well, for the past 9 years), I congratulate my fellow quitters, Ann, Claire, my sister Karen, and thank blog readers for their support and encouragement, especially Cara.
Sleepy Leprechaun wishes you a Happy St. Paddy's Day!

No matter what Junah is doing he is as cute as cute can be! Love the yawn.
Congratulations to you, Vicki! Look at how quitting has impacted your life and the lives of all who love you. How can 9 years go by so quickly?

Oh my this little guy is driving me nuts, I need to kiss those soft parts....!
Congratulations for being a loyal quitter, not smoking is so much better than smoking isn't it?

What an accomplishment! I'm glad you quit when you did so you could spend more time with all the people you love!

The first post of yours I remember reading was your quitting post (though I know I had been reading for several months at that point). Congrats on 9 years of quitting!

Congratulations to you! That is SUCH A GREAT ACCOMPLISHMENT!!! (And it is so fun to see your hand knits modeled on the sweet Junah! He is growing more adorable every day -- if that is even possible. What a sweet little man.)

Congratulations on NINE years smoke free - grateful for all the extra days you have to spend with everyone who loves you. And that last photo is definitely one of my favorites - what a cutie!
