For some reason, thinking in terms of acquiring a new habit, instead of commemorating the breaking of an old habit is liberating. I have now put the habit of weight training in my life. I am working to acquire other new habits as well.
For a long time, I have been more focused on "breaking bad habits" than cultivating a heightened awareness of my focus on developing more positive routines and customs in daily life - new habits.
Just for perspective, here are my "stats" from Quitnet as of 6 am yesterday:
Not smoked: 9,951 cigarettes (based on smoking one-half pack per day, 20 cigs)
Money saved: $2,160 (based on $4.50 per pack)
Lifetime saved: 2 months, 13 days, 6 hours
Quit date: April 23, 2006
Celebrate the positive in our lives!!
