Two things to remember on November 11. The day that we all remember our fallen soldiers.....and to me, that day had also a different meaning, a day of another thing fallen, to remember also for the rest of my life.
Smoking......I have been that awful cigarette butt smoker for over 40 years, probably more close to 45 years. I began when I was at about the age of 12, I am now fifty-five. Doing the math, it would appear that it is probably more than likely to be almost exactly.....hmmm....thinking....43 years, yeah, I can still count.
September 11 of this past year, I put down the cigarette, never to pick it up again. The details are not something that I wish to speak about, it has been a very difficult month, for me and mine, (smiling that secret smile that can be taken any way you choose). :roll: :lol: 8-) :? :shock: :-D :-X ;) :) :) :). Isn't there any more little face pictures that I can push to get my point across, hee, hee.... I think my Husband has actually gone to blazes and back again, no doubt, on my account....he is still in love with me, (don't know how that could have possibly happened, knowing what a demon I have been this past month) -- and I know he would travel that highway, over and over, if it was something that he had to do, hee, hee. Anyways. This is a time for me to rejoice. A time for me to tell all my friends, be they personal or forum cyberspace, I am that new-and-improved woman -- the non-smoker.
This woman has foiled the very devil himself, and got that big ol' monkey to jump right off my back, he'll never climb back on. I, at this time, feel that I can honestly say that I have now joined the ranks of the non-smoking human beings, I am grateful for this, as I am grateful for everything else in my life. I will never smoke again, I make this promise to myself, and to the world that will listen to me. Have that most wonderful and awesome day, love your lives we all live and share, great health. Cindi
P.S. Brendhan, I know that you will be particularly proud of me, smiling...... 8-)
