Another New Attempt

After paying $47.95 for a can of Prince Albert Pipe Tobacco today, I have decided to begin anew my goal of becoming pipe free.  My goal is to work at dramatic reduction in number of pipes per day for a while with the goal of being pipe free before the end of the Summer.... Hopefully even earlier.  I feel a strong sense of resolve this time.  It seems similar in some ways to the resolve I had in losing weight, and in becoming a runner.   Hopefully this is not just a pipe dream like it has been in the past.  If I can get up enough gumption and damn orneriness in myself, I am hopeful I will succeed this time.  It took several attempts to lose 120 pounds, it took a lot of effort over a long time to walk and then run.  I can do this, if I keep making steady progress.

I hope you are successful in reaching your goal! You must remember that tobacco is as addicting as food and you may need some outside help.
Wow, tobacco is really expensive anymore. I didn't know!

" . . . not just a pipe dream." Hope not. Good luck. From your comment to Peppy Lady, I gather that this is an old habit.

Good luck, Professor. If will-power isn't sufficient, I suggest you see a hypnotist.
