I Quit, etc.

After 30+ years of being an avid smoker (except for a few years of abstention that ended in Ogunquit, Maine after a particularly crazy night with a certain ex of mine) I finally quit 10 days ago.
I sat next to a cardiac nurse at a gay conference two weeks ago and she scared the hell out of me about smoking and diabetes, so I quit.
I think God should be giving me a reward of some sort- something along the lines of a beautiful, single, intelligent, child-free, frisky lesbian whose estranged ex-lovers all live at least 1,000 miles away, and whose family lives even further.
Is that too much to ask?

And what about the racially divided "Survivor" this season?
I'm loving it.
I put my money on the Latinos. They work harder than anyone, they are used to harvesting food and they can easily deal with hot weather.
But why oh why did they send that cute Korean dude to Exile Island?
Dude found the immunity idol in about 15 seconds. Duh!

No small task! Best of luck in this one.

The universe may hand you more energy and reduce shortness of breath before the other stuff comes.

I do know from having ended other nasty habits that the payoffs do come.

Two weeks without buying any cigarettes! But I admit I have bummed a few- just a few.

Smoking OP's(other peoples) is a good way to quit, folks catch on to that shit quick.

Good for you..wish I could quit..but life is far too screwed up to try that along with everything else.
