Leaving on a Jet Plane

That song is running through my head at the moment because I am heading to Florida for a research meeting tomorrow afternoon after I give my students their final exam.  I am thinking about NOT taking my pipe to jump start my effort to quit.  I have been thinking about it but it makes me nervous.  I would be unlikely to easily find a pipe or even pipe tobacco while down there so, I have been trying to psyche myself up about how I need to look at it positively, and how I should not allow myself to get riled up and angry  because I will not have my damnable pipe pacifier with me.  Part of me still thinks I should take it, but we shall see what I end up doing.

Taking a pipe isn't a problem, taking a lot of tobacco is. You need to force yourself to use less and less tobacco each day until you get it down to where you are smoking less each day and then down to just a few puffs, then none......

It helps to stay busy with other things so you have less time to reach for the pipe, and to tell yourself, "Not for another hour, then I can have two puffs."
