Serious Thoughts.... Again

I am really in a mental state for the last several days that is probably good for me.  I am feeling more and more determined to quit the damn pipe smoking.  Quit is still unfortunately a bit of a relative term.  Most of the time, when I say I want to quit, I mean 100% quit... quitting completely.  Still there is a part of me who thinks I should once again go with the 97% quit... meaning I can have a pipe or two when I am sharing drinks and chatting with my elderly father-in-law.  When I am in this thought train (the 97% quit), I am reminded of and think about how I did exactly that for the six weeks when I also had the motivation where I also committed to doing this during the entirety of Lent. 

I am formulating my next plan of attack at this, and I want whichever route I select to be one that I adopt permanently!

I would love to report that I have quit smoking but I still smoke a little.

Went to Temple yesterday, may do a post about a big waste of taxpayers money.

i quit smoking 26 years ago. i had tried to quit several times and one of the main things helped my quit was remembering how depressed i felt each time i failed.

plus for a few weeks before quitting i put all my cigarette butts in a big jar of water and after i quit i put another jar beside the cigarette butts and each day tossed in the amount of money i was saving. i put the jars on the tv so i had to look at them constantly.
