Have You Ever Been Saved? (copied from the invisible blog)

      Beginning when I was young, we used to go camping in Yosemite for two weeks every summer. One of the favorite things to do there besides seeing Half Dome, El Capitan, Yosemite Falls and the other natural wonders was swimming in the river but there were risks.

      Nature can create hidden dangers in the form of a deep holes where the river runs into a bank before it turns, hollows out the bank and the river bed making it much deeper. The water coming out of the turn picks up great speed like a slingshot and can create a whirlpool which can pull you downward in the strong vortex created.

 

      This happened to me when I was about 8 and if my dad had not been watching me, I would have drowned.

 

      My dad saved me from drowning but, I had to save myself when it came to smoking.

      You have the power to save yourself by making an informed decision (the informer is you) and being willing to let time distance you from the ritual and addiction of smoking.

 

No one can do it for you, not even my dad.
