I know now so much more than I did back then.

Life is a gift given to me from God. I want my life. I have so much to live for. The years I spent addicted to smoking or so I thought I am happy to say I have been almost six years smoke free. I feel like a spirit of destruction was deceiving me and playing a game all along under a false smile. I fight every urge I have to smoke and I vow to stay quit. I have a few Nicotine Anonymous poker chips I got on different occasions and I know my life is going to always be happy since I just say no to smoking. I may have a pina colada once in a while if I go out but that’s it maybe a bottle of Arbor Mist. It’s low alcohol basically fruit flavor wine with less than 10% alcohol.
