Freedom, Integrity, Savings Freedom from addiction, slavery, and hypertension. no need to lie to wife, kids and others that I do not smoke. Integrity, which also relived me from the guilt feelings. savings in terms of money and valuable time to be spent with kids.

Hi everyone,
 
In 3 words or less, what does it mean to you? There may be duplicate answers, and that's perfectly OK.
 
Mine would be Freedom.
 
Take care.
