It’s healthy to quit smoking – we all know that. But there are other, even more gratifying benefits associated with quitting.

My son and his family live on the opposite side of the country from me – nearly 2,500 miles away. The last time I saw them all was when my grandson was only 1 year old. Since then, my son and his wife have had 2 more children – granddaughters whom I had never met before July, 2011. One of the reasons I hadn’t visited them in so long was that I realized how unhealthy and selfish it would be for me to expose them all to my smoking habit. In addition, I knew I wouldn’t be setting a good example for my grandchildren. Sadly, I was simply too addicted to cigarettes to give them up even for a few days’ visit.

Since I quit smoking nearly a year ago, I was finally able to visit my son and his wife at their new home without the risks associated with exposing them and their beautiful children to my deadly smoke. I was able to set a good example for my wonderful grandchildren while really getting to know them. Check out the video below to see what a great time we all had without my smoking addiction.
