The most shocking thing about reaching the "comfort" zone is realizing how completely UNCOMFORTABLE you were as an active smoker, almost every moment you weren't smoking,. And even when you could actually just relax and chain-smoke in comfort, you were never safe... too much and your lungs would start to hurt or you'd feel nauseous, or too few and you'd feel anxious and ripped off...or... Well, you know. Just never satisfied.
I feel happy and satisfied almost all the time now, when I even think about it. I am still in awe of how much "not smoking" has changed my life for the better in a million tiny ways that I could never have anticipated. I wish I could give everyone who still smokes just 10 minutes of how this feels... it's that powerful.
Just keep on keeping on, to everyone... it's woth everything!!!
