Blog Post created by james41 on Feb 24, 2010

Good Gosh Amighity!! Who would of thought it, 2 months Nicotine/Smoke free! I know a few folks, friends and family who would tell you you've got the wrong James. But as advid a smoker as I was , as of today I am just as advid a happy non-smoker. I always had problems with the whole idea of quitting, I thought I loved everythig about them, wow how misled was I in thinking that.

What I've had on my mind this am is the time factor, I made sure I had time to smoke regardless of what was going on, no matter what or where, If I flew I knew exactly where and how far and how much time I had to smoke so much so the whole joy of the trip was lost.  A movie, can't even remember anything about it because I was thinking of a cigarette, Church? quit going, dwelled on smoking, could'nt even tell you what the preacher said cause I was wanting a cigarette!, If I paid my respects at a funeral home , I knew where the smokers were and usually had an excuse to not go to the actual funeral cause that might cut in to my smoking, I know does this guy have a heart? Yes very big , cry at Halmark Commercials but just don't get in the way of the smokes, I've actually stayed home If there was a dinner party /invite  of any kind and you could'nt smoke at the persons house. Put unnecessary miles and burned gas so I could smoke in my car cause someone offered theirs but could'nt smoke in their car. My entire life was revolved around smoking!!!! Think about it!! I know I'm not alone! Crazy!!!

Good Gosh Amighty!!! What was I thinking,,, sick and pityful but very true, I have missed so much and lost out on seeing great nephews cause my neice did'nt allow smoking at her house and I did'nt think I could stand it.. It was all about my comfortable place to smoke,, I never even did the don't smoke in the house thing, I smoked  regardless new paint expensive furniture or my very first apartment with no furniture, I was going to please the smoker in me, and sometimes was very verbal about non smoking houses and cars etc.

One more thing,,,, gave up passed up good jobs because you could'nt smoke on the property!!! Crazy!


I'm 51 all you young folks, don't wake up too late.

Ok guys 2 mo's today I'm outta here for today, I got some livin to do!! WOW!!!

Thanks for all your great insightful blogs
