I made a great dinner, house is perfectly clean, all chores done and even mowed the yard…then Hubby comes home late, dinner is cold…its dark out so he can’t tell I mowed for him, He’s tired and so he can’t notice how great the house looks….so I made a choice and smoked

 

The dog decided to urinate on the new carpet…And thats when I made a choice to smoke

 

My Dad Died…I made a choice to smoke

 

We are going out to dinner, I feel fat and nothing looks right on me….so I made a choice and smoked.

 

My kids are acting like kids and my patience is running out, so I made a choice to smoke.

 

I have just finished a nice long walk and then worked out…and thats when I made a choice to smoke

 

Darn telemarketers, I made a choice and smoked.

 

Are you kidding me, the kids forgot to latch the pasture gate, now the horses are loose …again! Better smoke.

 

I can’t find my cell phone. …so I made a choice and smoked.

 

I just banged my elbow on the door that I neglected to close, so I made a choice and smoked

 

Ahhh a glass of Vino, and I made a choice to smoke

 

I need to relax, so I made a choice to smoke

 

I have important decisions to make, so I made a choice to smoke

 

I am on the phone for Petes sake, so I made a choice to smoke.

 

I am in between chores, so I made a choice to smoke.

 

I am sick with a horrible head cold, so I made a choice to smoke ( wow-really)???

 

I am happy-Sad-Frustrated-Worried-impatient-Concerned-Tired-Elated-hungry-thirsty-Angry-and a hot mess of many many emotions….and at one time in my life, I MADE A CHOICE AND SMOKED OVER EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM. 

 

Its freezing outside, so I made a choice and went out and smoked

 

I made a choice and an Excuse

 

I am still all of those things somedays. But now I make different choices....

I Choose not to smoke over anything anymore. No more Excuses, ( like Tony Horton says), lol.

 

Smoking only enhanced everything above. It didn’t bring my Dad back, or fixe a bad situation, it didn’t help me get over a head cold or make any decisions for me any easier. It didn’t round up the horses for me, it just made them get further from me catching them. It never relaxed me…the situation was always still there when I put out the cigarette.

 

Only you have the power to make a choice

   choose wisely

Make a BETTER EXCUSE....

Tell yourself and others "I don't do that anymore"
