With the help of a Higher Power, decision-making can be one of life's great adventures. Each crossroad brings a new challenge, and I am capable of dealing with whatever comes my way.

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

I've now gone a week without a cigarette and don't want to smoke again. (I did not stop smoking because I felt poorly. I stopped mainly because of societal pressures and personal ones. Health would have been next. LOL)

that good habits are as easy to develop as bad habits

to see 2 friends return to AA quickly after relapsing

that I know that when I don't benefit from the experiences of others, I ain't paying attention

that the flooding yesterday was not too bad where I live

I'm not what Willis was talking about

I am not afraid of storms, for I am learning how to sail my ship.

I feel sorry for Kermit - more for his arse than anything else. Must hurt like hell being fisted for all those years.

:-D

Way to go dAAve. Oddly enough, I've been trying to quit too. I went 3 days w/out one (fever) and now I'm down to 4 a day. I have the patch but I'd prefer not to. Good luck. You can do anything!

Quitting has nothing to do with it. I simply became a nonsmoker. No patches, no gum, no cravings. It's all about attitude with a little step work thrown in for good measure.
And you're right - I can do anything.

Congrats on 1 week as a non-smoker!

Well I really liked the Kermit toon. The storm quote makes me want to take up sailing. Oh and a week without a smoke is really good. I thought that quitting smoking for me was harder than the booze. Then when I was finally willing it was not so bad.
