I started smoking when I was 15 and now I am 32. More than half my life as a smoker. Its has been a way of life for me, a very welcome daily/ hourly habit for me. I always thought it was my outlet to handle stress, honestly it was my best friend for a very long time.
I started running in Jan of this year. Running and smoking don't really go well together but I have continued both up until Sept 1st when I quit smoking. My third race is coming up on the 14th and I am determined to beat my last times and be better, faster and stronger. I am also doing this to be a role model for my 5 beautiful children. I want to be the best mom, wife, daughter, sister and friend possible and I am not my best as a smoker.

You have to quit for you! If your not quitting for yourself it will be almost impossible to stick to it.
