Boom!  "Gee, A Cigarette Would Be Nice Right Now!"

What a tenacious addiction this is!   Here I am more than eight years quit.  I am doing my Manic Fall Housecleaning, and have been working on my bedroom.  I came downstairs to get something to drink and to take a break.  As I'm coming down the steps with a bucket of dirty water and some things to put in the dryer to freshen up, the thought invades, "Gee..."  Easy to dismiss; not a crave, but I am STILL astounded that I even had the thought.  I have found, though, that the "reward" association is the last to leave me, I guess because I have only had eight years of Fall Housecleaning to relearn it.  I am now here reading and responding on the site, enjoying a gingerale over crushed ice,....and creating a NEW association.


Tenacious, though!


Be careful out there!






P.S.  Of COURSE I didn't smoke!!!
