One whole year not smoking!
I did it.
Deakin University has too.
Thanks to my special work mate for the card and yummy chocolates (you know who you are).
And to all my family and friends who supported me on my quit journey.
I celebrated my 40th Birthday over the weekend.
Happy Birthday to me – Happy Birthday to Deakin!
I had a pool party, with ice-cream cake. Just like when I was a little girl. There may have also been some french champagne consumed to celebrate the milestone.
Did I smoke? Have I had a single puff on a ciggie since March 10, 2014 – the day Deakin University and I pledged to go ‘Smoke-Free’?
The answer is no. I did it! I am over the moon. I achieved my goal to be a non-smoking 40 year old. And along with Deakin, celebrated nine months without smoking on December 10, 2014.
I won’t be blogging much, but will check in every couple of months to let you know how things are travelling. But until then, thank you to all of you who helped me (and many other Deakin staff members and students) kick the habit this year. You know who you are – and I want you to know that without your support I may not have been able to do this. It has been bloody hard!
Wishing you all a fantastic festive season. And if your new years resolution is to quit, make sure you check out the Smoke-Free website for tips and tricks.
