Big Successes

Pooka made a great thread here for us to share our small successes. Share your big successes, especially ones that took you a long time to achieve and seemed impossible.

I'll go first.

Finishing my competent communicator manual for Toastmasters, a public speaking organization, was a great accomplishment. The manual consisted of ten speeches and took me two years to accomplish. It was worth it.

Re: Big Successes

Cool thread idea

haha I had to go google what a communicator manual for toastmasters was... very cool man!

.......

I'm a little over 4 years, 5 months (1,617 days) smoke free.
It was a big accomplishment cause I thought I LOVED smoking. And it was getting pretty bad leading up to the quit day...I was up to at LEAST 2 packs a day...chain smoking. I would start craving my next smoke, while I was still smoking my current one. It was making me miserable.
Killed my ability to breath too. I remember having a hard time just walking from my car in a parking lot, to the doors of a store. I'd get so winded...I could feel my entire head get tomato red from the lack of oxygen and the exhaustion, and I felt for sure I'd pass out at any moment.
Man...I sure as heck don't miss that.

I love my quit. It's meant so much to me. Changed my entire life! First major goal I'd had in life in years, and it felt amazing early on in my quit to have something to fight for. I've got a warrior I stuff inside of me...and I let him out early on in my quit, and he just thrived on the challenge!

N.O.P.E.!
Not One Puff Ever!

Re: Big Successes

Hmm well I finally stopped drowning my frustrations in women to which I had no profound connection......and instead I pursued religious life/priesthood. I feel like that's a big change/success!

I actually ended up working in Paris, in an amazing part of the city. Sometimes I still can't believe it.

Re: Big Successes

I need to give myself credit where it's do.

I've come a long way in my relationships with people. Even though I struggle I know how to speak up for myself, be assertive when necessary and voice my concerns.

I really was not in a good place several years ago but overtime I became more self-confident and assured. I'm a much better person and am grateful for these forums in fostering my growth.
