Valentine Promise

Hello fine people. I had a rough go of it today. I woke up with cigs on my mind, came down to the kitchen and thought about it some more. I had a coffee and read the paper, and it came right back again. I got busy for a time, just putzin' around trying to forget about it. Then, I went out on the deck where I used to smoke, and remembered that I have a flower pot full of cigarette butts. I took a whiff of that, and felt fine that I wasn't' smelling like that anymore. However, the urge to smoke stayed with me for most of the day. As usual, little things that normally wouldn't matter, really got me cursing and carrying on. Squirrels who have succeeded in outwitting my "squirrel proof" feeder just made me livid. I went to Lowe's and bought a baffle that I hope will work to discourage them ( they are clever little buggers), and returned to set that up, only to find that I had to improvise a few things--more anger. After that saga, I went to the car wash and returned home to still another urge to buy a pack and smoke em down. I made it though. I am pleased to report that I'm finally in double digits--10 big ones. I hope I can keep this up. I'll be honest and say that even though a "nic fit" only lasts a short time, experiencing them over and over again, is tough on the old constitution. I hope all of you are well and safe, and thanks for listening.
