Killing Monkeys

In August of 2003, I quit smoking. In August of 2010, I started again. Oh, there were several reasons but they all translate to stupidity. Now it is time to get the monkey off my back again.

(Above photo is me. Back when I was Rita Hayworth)

Boy howdy, it is hard. What keeps me going is A) not leaving the house, 2) avoiding everyone while I work through the cranky stage and C) knowing that I have done this before. And that it is doable.

So if ya' come to visit and I am a tad grouchy, please remember that I won't bite your whole head off. Just a little sliver.

When I come to visit, I will bring you a big bag of drop: sweet, salty, double salty and quadruple salty liquorice! Apparently it works, although I wouldn't know since I've never smoked and I hate drop!

Oh, good luck by the way!!

I truly appreciate the idea. I hate liquorice (the black stuff anyway) though.
Thanks for the good luck!

Way to go! I need to do the same and I'm just not feeling it right now. I quit before too, but it was a long, long time ago and I wasn't dealing with all the crap that I am now. I know.... excuses.

Anyway, best of luck with it. Keep fighting the good fight. I'm rooting for you!
