I Quit Smoking Nine Years Ago Today

.
Tis that time again, folks -- every year on May 5th we celebrate the anniversary of my having quit smoking on this day in the year 2008. How do we celebrate it? We celebrate by posting a great big gallery of beautiful men making smoking look like the sexiest goddamned thing on the planet. Yes we know this is a weird way to celebrate, but we're weird.

You know this. Anyway if you'd like to peruse the former galleries you can do so right at this link. (I have finally, after nine years of this, giving the posts their own tag. Nine seemed like a good enough number.) I can't believe we're working towards 10 years smoke-free now - that's basically as long as I smoked in the first place. (The first couple years smoking was just a thing I did when I went out drinking in college, so a "start date" is as hazy as smoke itself.) 

I'm a quitter! A wonderful quitter! Hurray for me! But don't y'all be quitters - y'all go ahead and take a deep breath and hit the jump and take in the great big lung-bursting gallery of nearly ninety pictures... (now that I save up pictures for these posts all year long they get bigger every time)...

for me those cigarettes in the photos ruin those men's chances of being sexy in them (yes, even mcavoy). so to each his own!
congratulations regardless :)

Congrats! I'll celebrate 7 years in August. Hardest thing to do...and I still have cravings all these years later. Talk about a drug that belongs on the Schedule I drug list; nicotine is a bitch to quit!

I quit a year and half ago, so it's still pretty fresh. The picture of Luke Evans got my panties wet.

It's been 3 years and a month, but the cravings do linger. So do other cravings, looking at these photos.

Congratulations!!!
