Ok gang. it all begins for me tomorrow yet again. As many of you know I have been going to the gym to lose the weight i have accumulated over the years. I started going back in January and I continue to go. Now something new has come up. My cash flow has dwindled to nothing and I have had to slowly mark off those things I dont need or cant afford. I have put it off and put it off but finally I have reached the point where my cigarettes have to go. Do I want to quit? Honestly? No. I enjoy smoking. Its my final bad habit. Its one I have had with me for believe it or not 32 years. i started smoking when I was 7 and had a habit by the time I was 10. I was hooked totally by the time I was 13. Marlboro, camel, and Winston owners have bought more than a few homes courtesy of my patronage.
And yet while I was faithfully supporting them, they raised their prices higher and higher. Not only that, the Government got into the game and learned they could tax smokers into the poor house. So I have to join the ranks of you calling yourself non-smokers. Not because i want to but because I cant afford to. I weighed my wants and my needs and smoking was one of my wants that my body tells me I need. So it has to go. At some point tonight or tomorrow I will run out of cigarettes. it wouldn't be so bad if it was just me but my wife is a smoker too and she knows I cant buy them anymore and that we will be out. this is not a good thing. Two people in the same house quitting smoking and not having a choice. This could get bad really fast.
I will be going to the gym tomorrow earlier if I run out of cigarettes before the end of tonight. It might be safer for all in this house. I have a short temper and not having nicotine is going to cut that fuse in half. I will still be on Gather. Just understand if I jump the shark about a post, chances are I am more disgruntled about not smoking than anything. Wish for me the best. Pray if you believe. Have more faith in me than I have in myself because quite honestly, this is going to suck!
