I Make Mistakes But I Don't Smoke

~~Every time you find some humor in a difficult situation, you win.~~  Unknown


I got a response to one of my blogs last night that was unusual.  I had to read it twice.  And then I had to laugh.  Not what I would consider an appropriate response, but the writer did catch my attention.

I made a mistake last week.  It caught up with me last night as well.  Double whammy?  Nope, just a learning experience.  I keep reading that you only learn and grow when you step out of your comfort zone.....I believe I should have a PhD by now :)  I left my comfort zone far behind.....

But nothing can make me smoke.  I can be hurt but I won't smoke over it.  I can be tired, lonely, angry, upset, embarrassed, lost.......but I won't smoke.

Because the one thing I really do understand is that I have control over my addiction.  I can choose to smoke or I can choose to continue to be an ex-smoker.  And I am happier, healthier, and more confident as an ex.

Have a truly marvelous Monday, all!
