Please don't miss the train I'm on

Listen to the Freedom Song

All the cigarettes are gone 1000 days


I don't miss those things at all 

Now I'm standing proud and tall

And it's been 1000 days since they've been gone



1000 days, 1000 days I don't miss the smoky haze
and the choking has been gone 1000 days



I can breathe unimpaired

There's no stink in my hair

Nasty cigarettes are gone 1000 days

 

When I did my big face plant

On that sidewalk with the slant

I still remained smokefree 1000 days

 

 

1000 days, 1000 days I don't miss the smoky haze
and the choking has been gone 1000 days

 

I was standing at my bed

And got dizzy in my head

Took a dive and broke my hip

1000 days

 

I was laying on the floor

Couldn't take it anymore

but I still remained smokefree

1000 days

 

 

As they lowered me in a sling

to my life I had to cling

But I did not want to smoke

1000 days

 

 

1000 days, 1000 days I don't miss the smoky haze
and the choking has been gone 1000 days

 

 

(with thanks to all here for helping me make it this far)

'Nuf Said

Marilyn's blog this morning got me to thinking.

It takes many conscious efforts to smoke again - so it doesn't happen by accident.  You have to get one (did you keep some around just in case, perhaps - giving yourself permission to fail?) or you have to get to a store to buy them. You have to ask a clerk for them, and then pay your money. Then, you have to open the pack, take one out, find something to light it with (again - did you keep matches/lighter around just in case?), light it and then inhale.  I cannot imagine that first inhalation didn't cause you to almost choke up a lung, but you took another hit of that drug.  At any point before that first puff you have to make the bad decision to continue.  You also had the opportunity to stop.

If you get to that point, PLEASE post a HELP blog!  Give us time to talk you out of it.  It IS a matter of life and breath!

Drinking beyond your tipping point is one of the easiest ways to lose a quit. You've been warned!

Wait - there's someting WRONG with this picture, isn't there?

Don't drink alcohol this weekend.  It's a proven quit killer!

Nancy

You don't want to end up like this guy!

You really don't know the tipping point (the point at which your alcohol relaxed brain can convince you that "just one" won't hurt), so please don't chance it!    Your quit needs to be your #1 priority!
