Happy Quitnaversary!

Hello there, hope everyone's alright. Today is a special day because I am celebrating my Quitnaversary. Yes, one year of not smoking. I'm glad I made the decision to quit smoking a year ago and never looked back. I've been reaping all the benefits of not smoking ever since. 

To tell you the truth, I miss the coolness that comes with smoking, specially when having some drinks with friends or being in a very stressful situation. Quitting is not easy. Not smoking is a conscious effort all the time. 

I am very sure why I decided to quit. The reason is simple -- It doesn't get better. It can only get worse. There are so many things that I want to do in life that requires me to be fit. Quitting is the first step to being fit. That's what I've always wanted.

Veni-Vidi-Vici  means "I came, I saw, I conquered." That has been the mantra of my victory over smoking. Ironically, this secret is in every pack of Marlboro itself.

Congratulate me, I am a very very proud quitter. For those who want to quit, I support you 100%. But quitter or not, let us all celebrate life. Life is short, indeed.

i think i might quit someday. hehe. pero pag may parating na concert, di ako nagyoyosi. ok, nagyoyosi ako pero konti lang. mga two sticks per week. mas madali kasi huminga pag clear ang baga.

@khanto, oo nga eh. 1 year, mejo matagal tagal na rin yon. Malaking recovery narin sa katawan.

@engel, thanks.

@mots, yung nanay ko din, incorrigible :)

@kikilabotz, nakakaaddict talaga, kaya nga it took me years bago ako nakapagstop for good.

@nishiboy, aha! vocalist ka ng isang band :) Buti sayo 2 sticks lang. May kilala ako, tuloy tuloy, kain lang ang pahinga from yosi.

@pmmo, salamat bro.
