Hello darling Nicotine Free creatures,
I forgot about a 10-year anniversary.
Earlier this summer, remembered in a conversation with Joel Spitzer
and an email from our marvelous Doreen and then forgotten completely.
Now a compelling reminder...
Must never get blasé about my quit as memory of smoking recedes into the past.
I ignore my struggle and success at my peril.
There are far too many stories of carelessness leading to a resumption of the addiction after a substantial amount of time.
No matter how strong my repugnance of tobacco is and my triggers and body memory in remission I remain an addict albeit nicotine free.
Not One Puff. Never Ever.
That is my anniversary lesson.
