I Wish I Could Change

Day 22:  A picture of something you wish you could change.

I don't regret much in my life because I feel like some of the forks in the road have brought me to this very moment.

BUT, there is one thing I wish I could change about my past.  I wish I could go back in time and not smoke that first cigarette that caused me to smoke for a period in my life.  I hated it while I was doing it, I hated admitting I did it.  I hated the smell, the taste, everything about it.  Yuck. Yuck. Yuck. 

Happily, I have quit that awful habit (for a few years now) and I will never again be a smoker.  I almost hate to have a picture of cigarettes on here but I think it's important that I'm honest about what I'd really change.  And I'm SO thankful that it's not a part of my life anymore.  Someday I'll write more about quitting and what I learned about myself in the process.  But for now I'm going to gaze upon the cute shoes in my closet that I can afford because I'm not throwing money away on cigarettes.

WOW I had no idea! I'm so glad you are a non-smoker now :)

I'm so glad you quit smoking! My Dad said it was the hardest thing that he's ever done is his life because it's SO addicting.

Just out of curiosity....was it my & Kim's influence that started you smoking in the first place? You know-when we all lived together & she & I smoked ALL the time? I clearly remember a time when you were not a smoker...but not so much a time when you were a smoker. So did you start after you graduated? So proud of you for quitting! It took pregnancy for me to finally quit!

Shan--I started after graduation and working. Really dumb considering I made it through college and all those nights out without being a smoker. Crazy!
