Close Will Have to Be My Start



Billy Pilgrim commented on my previous post saying that he thought it would be easier to be 100% tobacco free than mostly free.  I see the logic in what he is saying, but on an emotional level it seems harder for me to contemplate. 

I am still thinking/planning I will attempt to  go "tobacco nearly free" very soon. What I believe and hope is means for me is that I will refrain from smoking my pipe other than on those occasions where I am drinking.  For me, this means typically that if I drink, it is usually on a Friday afternoon with my elderly father-in-law, and this probably happens twice or perhaps three times a month.. 

The reality is that I want to (theoretically) stop completely.  But my nature is such that I find the idea of "forever" being very, very disheartening.  I am hoping that if I get enough "tobacco nearly free" days under my belt, then I may very well feel confident enough to chuck all my pipes and tobaccos away for good.  But, I am not quite there yet.  Hell, I am not even yet to the "tobacco nearly free" state.... but I am planning to have that begin soon.
