What’s in a quitting anniversary?
I wasn’t intending to write about this quitting anniversary. I know that today is an “anniversary” day for me but every year I have to look at an old hand written (back up) birthday calendar that I keep and figure out how many years it’s been since I terminated two activities in my life.
But last night I read a really well written article about women and drinking that got me thinking a bit and I felt compelled to pen something this morning.
Today’s anniversaries are not necessarily important because of the success in terminating undesired behaviors.
It is an important day because it is a reminder for me that I am capable of accomplishing great change in my life.
Strongly desired change.
It was 14 years ago today I quit smoking.
5 years ago today that I stopped drinking alcohol.14 years ago I quit smoking. 5 years ago I quit drinking. There's nothing I can't do. Click To Tweet
Have I become preachy about it? Nah. I’ve used it as an empowerment tool.
