    It has been 3 days now since I have smoked a cigarette. Thought it would be a good time to quit. The damn Okie is avoiding me like the plague. Could be because I have turned plum mean. Between nicotine lozenges and peppermint, I am gonna make it thru this without hurting him or mugging the little old lady across the street that rides her little cart, smoking.

    I'm kinda' like Mark Twain with this one "Quitting smoking is the easiest thing I've ever done, I've done it a 1000 times". Good luck, Mrs. Okie.

    I have been a non smoker for over a week now. The nicotine lozenges are pretty much the order of the day, coupled with peppermint candy. Over the weekend, the damn Okie joined me in this endeavor. It should get interesting around here. I haven't noticed too many mood swings on my part, heck, I am just like a copperhead and stay mad all the time.:angry:
    I went to the dry cleaners yesterday and on my way out, I encountered a lady smoking....ah, the aroma! I looked at her and decided that she was older than me, so I thought, "hmmm, I can take that cigarette away from her, yep, I can take her." After the initial urge, I decided it wouldn't be a good idea to mug an old lady in a wheel chair. I have figured the cost for both of us to smoke and it is right at 4K a year. Hopefully, next year we will apply those funds to a new travel trailer. Done got my heart set on one. I have also located a good deal on some rental cabins near Broken Bow Lake in good old McCurtain County, OK, so I am sure that the damn Okie will set his foot down and it will either be one or the other. Anyway, to quit smoking will have other benefits other than health issues. It would be nice to be able to breath normally again, but being a 40+ year smoker, breathing easy is not gonna come quick, if ever. The decision to quit smoking I made on my own and it is a personal battle that I am fighting daily and this is one fight that I am gonna WIN. I can do it!

    Thanks for asking.
