Goodbye sweet friend

Tonight is going to be my last night as a smoker. I have smoked on and off (but mostly on) for more years that I care to admit. I have quit cold turkey and with the patch. Nothing seems to work. Yes, I know that you need to want to quit, that you need to quit for yourself, blah, blah, blah. The problem is that I really like smoking and not just because it makes me look cool (kidding of course). There is nothing better than indulging in a few cigs and a few beers on my patio on a warm summer night. There is nothing better than lighting up after a great meal. But, those days are over. I need to quit; I'm tired of being a smoker. I want to live a full live, without phlegm, smelly fingers and black lungs.

Now, pardon me if I end this post. I'm going to smoke it up on my last night. I've got a six pack of Bells in the fridge. It has been chilling in the crisper all day.

After all, tomorrow is another day. And for me, it will be a smoke free one!

Best of luck! It's tough, but only for a couple weeks. Then it gets easy.

YEAH!!! This is so great! Big step! I'll treat you to another vice once you're offically cured.

Can my new vice be that sweet wine you brought over last weekend? Or maybe I should pick a serious vice like crack or herion. Or maybe sex addiction?? Then you can submit my name to Intervention and I can be on TV...a true dream of mine.

Thanks for the postive vibes Shaq!
