Please stop smoking Mommy

At the beginning of every new year, you get to wipe the slate clean and start over. There's no better time than NOW to do something that's good for you,  your loved ones and the environment.

This month marks my 2 year anniversary of being a non-smoker. Yes, I decided to quit when I landed in the hospital. But making myself healthier was not something I did for myself. I mean I really, REALLY enjoyed smoking. I had already stopped smoking at the workplace, had cut it down to an average of 5 a day and there was no smoking allowed in the house. And even though I have a "smell phobia" – I don't want to be the smelly guy and don't like people who are – the stink factor also didn't curb my urge.

Even though I try to eat good, exercise and love my family; the main reason I quit smoking... my dogs. If I die tomorrow, who would take care of my fur-babies? Yes, I have a husband who would probably do just fine. But I just couldn't stand the thought of them being left without me.
