Well, i’ve been doing some math...I was a pack a day smoker, so 88 days quit x 20= 1,760 not smoked.  Average price for a pack in LA= $11.00, so $11 x 88 = $968.00...boy that money really adds up.  I’m feeling ok overall today, just out of sorts because I didn’t really sleep great.  And stressed about my dog’s upcoming surgery.  I took him to the vet and the vet wants to remove the growth on his eyelid.  Thankfully I can afford the surgery, and I just want to make sure he’s ok.  Once they remove the mass they will send it to the lab to see if it’s cancerous.  I’m PRAYING that it’s benign.  I love that dog so much; we have been through a lot together in the 10 years I’ve had him. So it is weighing heavily on my mind.  But despite this stress, I WON’T smoke. I have way too many great things going for me, I won’t wreck it by smoking.  And I feel better despite the stress.  Life is gonna keep happening—good, bad, and everything in between and smoking will only be another problem.  Just have to stay strong, and keep my chin up.  This will all pass...thanks for listening!!!!  Hugs to everyone.
