Foolish Thoughts! (REPOST)

Posted by pir8fan Jan 6, 2014

I do not watch a lot of television! Football and Jeopardy is about it! However, I did see a commercial the other day with a line that made me go "WOW"!

Brian Urlacker and Ray Lewis are future Hall of Fame pro football players who retired last year! They do a commercial together where Urlacker is calling Lewis, on game day, and asking it he is missing playing! Lewis claims not to miss the game at all! Meanwhile, he is dressing in his uniform, with lampblack under his eyes and wrapping his wrist with tape! He denies what is in his head! And he tells Urlacker "Only a fool trips on what's behind him!"BAM! What a line!! "Only a fool trips on what's behind him!"

My message to you today is twofold!

#1. It is OK to admit that you miss smoking (we all do), but please understand that you miss it because you are an addict! Dig deep enough to understand that you do not miss the things that smoking did to you, or what it cost you! Understand the magic moments in life that you failed to witness because you were off somewhere else feeding your addiction! Understand the cost not only in treasure, but in treasured moments!

#2. Keep your Focus, and keep moving forward! You can only trip on what is behind you if you take a step back! And, that would be foolish! You my friend are not a fool! Do not fall prey to foolish thinking!

The First of the Fifth!

Posted by pir8fan Jan 1, 2014

Good morning fellow EXer's! I woke up this morning to the realization that this is the first day of a new year X 2 for me! The calender says it is the first day of 2014! (The years are going way too fast!) It is also the first day of my 5th Smoke Free year! (I remember when 8 hours was a major accomplishment!)!

Lying in bed, I decided that I should start the year out with a nice invigorating 3 mile run, a long shower, and a good healthy breakfast! Then I remembered who I am! So, I took the dog for a walk, and I am going to make a couple of ham and egg sandwiches! Still planning to shower!

But, before I get to all of that, I felt a need to come here and let you know that I am not only thankful for the fact that I am here to see the new year(s), But I am thankful for all of you who helped me get here! Over the past 4 years, at this site, so many of you have shared your lives and your wisdom with me! Some are still here, and some are long gone from this site! And Dawn has moved on to her reward! Some have motivated me with their own long term quits, and some have motivated me by allowing me to help them with quits that are not as long as mine! But all of you are a part of my success here! 

I would be remiss if I failed to mention My Best Friend Sootie! From day one she has been my OAK! She has been my island of stability when the waters were at their roughest! And she has never hesitated to support me when I was right, and tell me when I was wrong! I have the utmost respect for this Lady! And that is the key to great friendship! Respect!

So, now, before going to work, I will head toward my shower, and then my ham and egg sandwiches. But first, I want to thank all of you who are a part of this site, and a part of my life! You all make my life better! You all make this site a better place! And, I look forward to a future that is better for all of us! Happy Smoke Free New Year!                 Tommy
