Well, Here It Goes...



I am still not sure what I will do today, when I go visit my elderly father-in-law, but here are a few thoughts:

A) Going there and not drinking or smoking my pipe is probably the safest route in terms of my ultimate goal of becoming an occasional, special-event pipe smoker.  But it may feel disappointing to my father-in-law (and frankly, it will feel disappointing to myself) if I do not partake.

B)  Going there and having a drink, but not smoking my pipe would probably be the hardest of the three options.  Drinking is generally enjoyable, but I am fairly often rather "take-it-or-leave-it" in that regard.  When I think about the drinking I have done across my life, it has pretty much always been with the inner thought that.... oh, if I have a drink, the real joy will be the more robust, more intense pleasure my pipe(s) will be as a result (I will have to tell more of the background of that in a future post).  I am not sure if I would enjoy having a drink *if* there is to be no pipe afterward. 

C)  Going there and having a drink and having 1-2 pipes.  This is what I would like to be able to do for my ultimate goal in my change of my lifestyle.  But, perhaps I am still too new and too "at risk" for falling "off the wagon" at this point to try to enact my plan? 

Well, I will still contemplate this and we will see what I choose and how it goes.

Today's (Friday's) Goal =0, or 1, or 2 bowls

Yesterday's (Thursday's) Goal = 0 bowls
Actual consumption (Thursday) = 0 bowls

Six months from now it would still be a risk. You've done great the last few days, good for you.

If you slip this evening have a good time and tackle it again tomorrow.

There's a chance an accident would take you out on the way there, wouldn't that piss you off? I'd prefer the accident after the pipes and drinks and I was on my way home.

Well, hell, I'm just that way. :-)

I'm wondering, the old fart you go visit and smoke and drink with, does he concern himself with his health because of smoking?

Wait..
Incoming vision...

Your demise will be the result of choking on a pubic hair.

Carry on....
