Wonderful afternoon of libations and pipes!!! I feel very pleasant indeed! The thoughts I have been having about my pipe and indulgence in the pipe are amplified by this wonderful afternoon. I would like, although it may be harder than hell to do it again, but I would like to not smoke a pipe except on those days when I am indulging in adult beverages. I only do that once a week or once every other week. I am going to continue my effort to be nearly pipe free, with the notion that when I drink I can indulge a bit. I think that will be a good starting point. Just getting to the idea of starting a new day one is the conundrum. But I think I feel very strongly that I can do it this time. It is such a contrast. It feels so wonderful to indulge tonight, compared to the ho-hum or even negative feelings when I indulge otherwise. It may be my ticket to eventually becoming pipe tobacco free!
