I'm having a happy day today. I am glad to be moving forward and realizing that cigarettes don't have to be a source of comfort for me in times of stress. I just had dental surgery the other day, and I'm happy to know I will heal well without that toxic, burning cigarette smoke in my mouth!! Yes, my friend is ill, yes my Dad goes to see a vascular surgeon tomorrow, he is 89 years old. It will be what it will be, cigarettes and me smoking WILL NOT change the outcome for them!!
