Cigs Vacation

It's that time again. A little over a year ago I quit for five months. I wish I hadn't started up again, but I did. Shoot me. I started the Step 1 patch on Monday. I had 3 cigarettes Monday, and 3 today. It may be a rough week.

I need a vacation. With the new job I've pretty much started all over. I haven't accumulated enough time for any real time off. My back kept me out for six days early last spring. Then, with the house purchase, came a half day for inspection, a half day for closing, a half day for the tree trimming... You get the idea. Throw in some illnesses and a back spasm or two and there goes my time. I'm looking forward to a 4-day weekend coming. I really don't want to do anything, but I may have to be with the in-laws while the Packer game is on. Oh well, minimal travel, I gotta remember to take beer, and focus on the game... The rest of the weekend I want for us here at home. I'm selfish. My batteries need recharging, more often than has been able this year.

You can do it! And I hear ya...we all need a break. I'm looking forward to some kid-free time over Thanksgiving! Enjoy your long weekend! :) Say Hi to the Mrs for us!

Go for it...think of the money that you will save...not to mention saving your health for you and your family.

Thanks for the support, Kelly and Galen! I've been trying to quit off and on for a long time. Last year I did quite well, so I have high hopes this time!
