Absolutely Useless Facts About Yourself, No One Cares About

A lot you may remember my health issues a few years ago. I have now gone 36 hours without a cig. I hate everything and everyone.
But my future self will thank me.
Years ago I help lead out in classes to help people kick the habit. One simple thing the doctors emphasized was to drink lots of water. Water "helps" flus nicotine from the system, - thus "minimizing" the urge. I know this may be impossible or highly impractical if you are working or in public, but if home, you might try it...to see if it helps.

Another "where it hits hardest!" ... I'm basing these figures on what the doctors said, but why question medical advice? The hardest urge to smoke a cig lasts from one to about 3 minutes. Take it one minute at a time. Say, "I CHOOSE not to smoke for 60 seconds!" Watch a clock. IF it's still there. REPEAT....for 60 seconds! If it's still screaming: Do it one more time:60 seconds: "I choose not to smoke for 60 seconds!" And JUST DO IT. The strongest URGE "should" have melted enough that you can take some deep breaths and focus on something else.

I hope they help when you're insides are knawing away! Meanwhile, I, too, am praying for you. With Christ we can DO ALL THINGS! With GOD (that's the key!) ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE!
Soli Deo Gloria!

I never realized I was so deep I've had visions of snakes being born to oversized knockers.

It's 5 a.m. now. I've been up since 4 a.m., to take a Tylenol, make a cup of coffee, and put an ice pack on my shoulder.

Now I'm glancing on line and reading, waiting for the alarm to ring at 6 a.m., then I'll get dressed, go get breakfast for our grand daughter who spent the night with us, and then go pick up our grandson and take him to football practice.

It cracks me up, how the football teams keep apart and just wave or acknowledge each other without shaking hands after the game, after having been in each other's face, and their hands all over each other for the past hour or so during the game. Whatever.

A new team has rotated in to our wildfire. I just watched their daily briefing from last night and their Operation Section Chief looks and sounds like Red Green.

Skip forward to the 2:00 mark to see the most Red Greenesque part.

Seven and a-half miles heading toward our dental appointment at 12:00, my wife received a call. The Clerk said one of their patients/clients (?) had tested Positive!!!! So all appointments CANCELLED! I parked at the curb, and after turning around and heading back toward home, my wife remembered "It is Tuesday! Pizza at Papa Murphy's is $10.00 for a large today." Now I'm waiting for it to come out of the oven. I will grab 2 beers and head for LUNCH with my wife!"
December 15 is our next Dental appointment! So now YOU ALL know the rest of 2's Day's Story!

I've been vaping almost 60 hours. I started with refillable flavor stuff like coffee and bananas split I still need that cigarette taste I got to disposable vuse and it was like heaven.

If you drop a 50 lb 5 gallon pail on your toe - - any toe! That will take your mind off a cig.! Guaranteed!
