Today is Smoke-free Day 176.
Yesterday was super fun because I had the pleasure of meeting, in real life, fellow Chantix blogger Chris of My Chantix Experience, who was passing through my part of this crazy world. Chris is indeed as cool in every way as I thought he would be (plus is a real foodie, not an impostor like me who just likes to eat), and we enjoyed a cup of coffee, chatted much (because that's how I roll, you know), wandered around much, froze outside much, and I hope he had as much fun as I did.
It think it's really great that quitting smoking now is probably easier than ever, even if you still won't catch me quite calling it easy and still just almost easy. Not even all that long ago my past attempts at quitting involved support in the form of a little booklet inside the package of nicotine patches which really didn't seem to help all that much. Now there are options like Chantix which helped me so very much more plus tons of support from other bloggers all running around talking about their experiences similar, different and other. It's no longer just nameless and faceless support in written one time booklet form, but sometimes people share bits of their lives and how things are really going, and sometimes you are lucky enough to actually meet a real person behind a blog.
All of this is just plain cool to me. I love my fellow Chantix bloggers (over there, linked on the side).
