For that we need a law??

Posted by pir8fan Jun 28, 2014

Just saw a news story detailing the fact that New York lawmakers have passed a bill making it Illegal to take selfies with tigers!! Really?? It seems that lions and leopards are also included!  

It is, however still legal to take selfies with bears and monkeys! I guess they are focusing on cats first! It is also legal to stick a tube of shreded tobacco into your mouth, set it on fire, and inhale the smoke! That does not mean that you should!

It seems that the lawmakers want to protect people from some dangerous things! But, it is fine to have an addiction that raises large sums of money in the form of tax revenues!

THIS MORNING!!

Posted by pir8fan Jun 12, 2014

This morning I wanted something different for breakfast!

So I made chili dogs!

And, that is Good, because I am Free to do what I want!

This morning I choose not to smoke today!

Same choice for 1624 Days in a row!

And, that is Good, because I am Free of addiction!

LIVE FREE MY FRIENDS! SMOKE FREE!

Tommy

Per Sheri's request!

Posted by pir8fan Jun 4, 2014

Today I will take time to celebrate me! As I look back on the person I used to be and the person I have become, I am proud of my progress! I am specially proud of the progress I have made since I came to this site!

As a smoker, I was very self centered! My addiction made me plan everything around my next fix! Nothing or nobody in my life was more important than feeding my addiction! I arrived here a very angry man! But a determined one!

Since coming here I have discovered the real me! I am concerned about others, and I try my best to help anyone that I can! Not only with beating this addiction, but with other struggles in life! I have found a side of me that is more generous. Life is no longer all about me, and my addiction! I look back with pride over the last 1615 days! I came here kicking and screaming about being forced to quit! You have taught me that quitting was a positive EXperence! And I have learned the lessons! I went out and got a job, and have risen to the upper echelon my profession

Today, I am proud of me, and in honor of Sheri's request I will celebrate the one thing of which I am most proud! That which I am most proud of, is the respect and the friends that I have won at this site! Live Free my friends! Smoke Free!                      Tommy

Dancingthrulife Has one year Today!! I remember my one year! Oh, how I smiled as everyone told me how great I was! My ego was wide open!!

Sheri looks at her celebration in a different way! She started a new job today, and will not be able to celebrate with us! Physically! Mentally she is right here with us, and typically for her, the celebration is not about her! It is about you! She posted a blog yesterday and ask me to reinterate it today! For her one year celebration, she does not want you to celebrate her! She wants you to celebrate YOU! If I may quote her here!

 "I am still hoping that everyone here will celebrate themselves.....how very unique and brilliant you are!!  Never let life dull the sparkle that makes you special.  Never let negativity dim that glow.

While life is short, some of the longest days are those spent alone....in darkness....in fear....thinking that you are the only one in the world who feels this pain or loss.  But keep in mind that most of us have been there at one time or another.  People here do truly understand.  So now it's time to put all those long days aside and bring in the joy, the amazing light, that you have inside you!!  Life is remarkable but sometimes it takes practice in bringing forth the positive.  No sneering!!  No scoffing!!  We all have light inside of us...we were all born to shine!  

Are you a closet accordian player?  Can you use a pogo stick?  Are you a shower singer?  Celebrate you tomorrow by allowing those creative talents to flow!  Are you a good listener?  Can you write?  Are you the best dad ever?  Whatever your talents, whatever your skills, whatever you want to try for the first time....let tomorrow be the day you focus on celebrating you.  I will be waiting, my fingers crossed, to hear about your day :)"

What Sheri would like for you to do today, is write a blog, and tell us why you are different from everyone else! Celebrate the things you are proudest of, or enjoy the most! No negativity! This is not about where you are in your quit! This is not about your family, or the people you work with! This is about what you do best and what makes you happy! Take a few moments and celebrate the unique person that is you! And, yes you are worth celebrating!
