    There! Happy now!!?

    @Elfay - sounds like we're in the same boat. Last smoke was at 2355 on December 31st.

    I still have lung bogies, which is disappointing.

    Here's another one...

    Fuck moderation, it's over-bloody-rated.


    Not sure if that's a resolution or just a new mantra.

    I had two resolutions when the year was nigh, but now I think I'm up to four.

    One. Utilize diplomacy wherever possible, but when diplomacy fails, give not a fuck.

    Two. Make this the last year I work for Starbucks.

    Three. Write a book entirely on a typewriter.

    Four. Work from home so I can spend more time with my children.

    @Elfay: I quit smoking a little over two years ago, and so I totally sympathize with your plight.

    One thing I'll say is that the cravings never really go away, although you can quell them. I still have times where I'll be out with friends and I'll see people smoking outside the bar, and I'll have the strongest urge to join them. It's mostly whenever I have whiskey, though.

    Oh oh oh oh! @CK Burch, you've reminded me of my biggest resolution.

    GIVE LESS FUCKS.

    One can never give too little fucks.

    Or, at least, that's what the prostitutes I hire say to reassure me.

    when you want to do something just do it- no hesitations or second guessing yourself. Go for what makes you happy and makes you fulfilled.

    I resolved that a long time ago- and am keeping to it. I also had decided to to the gym and I go for a hour 5 days a week. I need to keep doing and going. I'm not saying I haven't hit road bumps on the road to happy- but doing my best to weed out all the crap helps.

    Keep up with the not smoking! :D The hubby is at the point (quitting after 3 years) to puff cigars. The lung "oh gods what the hell was that i just coughed up!" goes away full after 6 months i'm sorry to say.

    Also give no one your fucks unless they are a good fuck ;)

    Thanks everyone for the encouragement. The daily twitter snark is helping as are the replies etc...
    I quit booze and drugs over 30 years ago - I remembering a guy at a meetin' years ago now sayin; I'd rather hafta quit smack again than try to quit smoking...
    Clearly I never forgot that statement. People just have no fucking idea how hard they are to give up.
    It's never quitting, it's staying quit. I've had 5 years off in my 20's and fifteen years later, 3 years off the smokes...for some reason it just won't stick.
    Anyway, I'm listening to a LOT of sad latin love ballads and living on the web today...it's just one of *those* days.
    and they ALWAYS pass...
