Today is Smoke-free Day 198, and I awoke to a brand spanking new year as a non-smoker (who used to smoke, took Chantix, cooperated with it, and now I don't smoke). I can't think of a better way to start a new year that I pray will be filled with lots of fulfilled hopes and plenty o' happy. Like lots of others, there are so very many things I do not share on my blog that go on in my day to day life, and it's probably more than enough just to say that I wasn't sad at all to see the end of 2007. I see very possible exciting and scary changes already on the horizon for 2008, and I look forward to seeing what happens even if change is rightfully often a scary thing. Oh Eight could really be a hell of a year. As always, some of the next year of my life will be up to me, some will just be in spite of me, but as long as I stay resolved not to smoke no matter what good, bad or other the new year may bring, I'll be doing better than I did headed into 2007 as a smoker who dreaded quitting because now I'm just a non-smoker (who used to smoke) maintaining the smoke-free nest I've already made.
Wishing everyone else a hopeful, healthful and sincerely happy brand new year, too.
