Your judgment is impaired from drink one and you really DON'T know your tipping point (the point at which a cigarette falls into your hand and then to your mouth).


Please don't chance it.  A quit is a terrible thing to lose.

Yesterday was Friday - and I forgot to do my weekly "don't drink while quitting smoking" blog.





your warning!  It's a bad idea!



"Back in the hospital with appendicitis followed by appendectomy Wednesday. Now I have a blood infection from the procedure and classified septic. My blood pressure bus extremely low as are my oxygen levels. I was sent straight to ICU after surgery. Now I am in surgical unit. If it ain't one thing it's another!"


I know Thomas3.20.2010 will appreciate all prayers, thoughts and hugz!


Please take a bit of advice from someone who now KNOWS  it isn't wise to drink alcohol when you are quitting smoking.


I share this  from a community member's experience:   “With a glass of wine having a cigarette seemed like a good idea, that led to 5 years of smoking until I found this site and relearned how simple it was to quit...don't smoke.”


Please learn from another's experience. A quit is a terrible thing to lose.





Today is a rare eight digit palindrome. The only one this century that is a palindrome in Europe and Asia as well. It is the 33rd day of the year with 333 days left. The last one was 909 years ago, 11/11/1111. Next one? 12/12/2121 101 years from now. After that it's a long wait until 03/03/3030.

Punxsutawney Phil in Gobblers ****, PA did not see his shadow this morning, either.....predicting an early Spring.  Now - we really haven't had a winter here, so I'm not putting too much stock in it all!

But, I hope everyone enjoys this special day - smoke free, of course!
