Life and No Mans Land They Are Both Just Unpredictable.

There's no way around it.

I fully expected to have the surgery I have been waiting on for 9 months this coming Tuesday.

The problem is a friggin tooth has other plans.

I had a tooth start hurting last Friday afternoon (doesn't it always happen on the weekend?)

So I called the dentist on Monday. They can't even take me on an emergency basis until this coming Monday.

I call my primary and explain that I have been in pain all weekend and the dentist cannot see me for a week but I have surgery on the 11th and they take me in and give me amoxycillin and vicodan which I've been taking since Tuesday.

So this morning, I called the surgeons office to figure out what he would advise me to do. He said I should cancel the surgery.

So are all the plans I made to make it easy for my recovery are wasted?

No, just postponed a month.

Some things are out of our control but quitting smoking is not one of them.

It's the one thing we can choose to do that nothing can change the course of.

See, smoking is a choice. It is fully in our control.\

Nothing and no one can make you smoke. NOTHING!

So hold onto this one thing you do have control of. It's a powerful thing.
