Today is my very special day. It is a day for me and me alone, and every year when this day rolls around, I realize how proud I am and how far I’ve come.
Six years ago, on November 1, 2007, I had my very last cigarette. Six years ago, I would have never believed that I’d go six years without smoking.
This year ended up being a special year for me, as I was chosen and will be inducted into the Ex-Smoker Hall of Fame for a local area wellness group I’m apart of. The event is going to be held on November 21, 2013, which is the Great American Smoke Out. I’m proud of my induction, and I’m honestly honored to be one of the chosen people in our community.
