Research Conference

I am currently in Minneapolis attending a research conference.  There is a talk today on inter uterine brain development affected by prenatal exposure to environmental contaminants that I am looking forward to.  My talk on my research is tomorrow and I feel ready to make a good presentation.  I just finished my morning run, which is always fun in a new city because I get to see the layout of the city better that way.  I now am sitting at a Caribou Coffee Cafe, having my morning pipe and then I will walk back to the hotel.  It should be an interesting day.  

I am still not sure what to do to get success getting rid of my pipe.  It should not be this hard.  There must be a very strong psychological aspect for me to overcome in addition to the nicotine.  I really want to figure this out.  

It is 62 degrees here, and it is beautiful as I sit drinking my iced coffee (black and strong) with my pipe.

The talk today sounds very interesting. I hope your talk tomorrow goes really well. What are you speaking on?

maybe take a break from trying to quit..maybe it's your frame of mind right now..putting a lot of pressure on yourself which makes you want to smoke it more..chill bud .you're doing great.

62 degrees sounds like heaven. It is SO humid here. Good luck on your talk.

You sound very contented, Professor. An academic at a research conference is truly in his natural habitat. The pipe is an optional accessory from which you will be weaned.
