I am once again a non-smoker. Notice I do not say “I have quit smoking.” My husband and I were smokers. We decided to stop. We took advantage of a church sponsored,three day camping trip, to give us a head start. We took no smoking materials and did very well. A few days later, still not smoking, I had an epiphany. We weren’t quitting a bad habit, we were taking back a good habit that we had had for the majority of our lives. I can not say how much easier it is to look at a cigarette or a smoker and not want one, when I think “I am a non-smoker,” instead of thinking about how I have just quit smoking. Here’s to being the non-smoker I was born as.
