Reflections of what was

Recommended Posts

Funny how age helps you see clearer, even if your eyes are losing their sight.

Once I was invincible, no challenge left unchallenged, life was a pleasure.  I ran

 with my eyes closed for the thrill and now I find that I am not invincible that my

past has reeked havoc on my present. I sit around a ponder things as elderly people

do, refusing to admit I am getting up there.  I still climb mountains, I walk don't run, I

have learned to savor the moments that use to race by hardly noticed.

I appreciate my body for all the years it has held up to the abuse and neglect I have

put it thru, its time now for me to return the favor and care for it.  

Yes changing my direction and leaving behind the indulgences is not the simple path, 

it is a path with hills and valleys, obstacles, both big and small, challenges that  require

persistence, strength and determination.  I have a lot of life ahead of me, grand children

and great grand children that are going to need the love of their Opah and I plan on

being there to give it.  My eyes may be failing But I have 20/20 vision.

About us

QuitTrain®, a quit smoking support community, was created by former smokers who have a deep desire to help people quit smoking and to help keep those quits intact.  This place should be a safe haven to escape the daily grind and focus on protecting our quits.  We don't believe that there is a "one size fits all" approach when it comes to quitting smoking.  Each of us has our own unique set of circumstances which contributes to how we go about quitting and more importantly, how we keep our quits.
