Friday Fill-in (on Saturday)

1. I'm looking forward to family dinner tonight.
2. Most of the rest of the world is a place I always wanted to visit and haven't made it there yet.
3. I've fallen in love with oh dear, how sad. I can't think of a thing to put in here.
4. Six of one, half dozen of the other.
5. Addiction brings out the nag in Janet. It's a good kind of nagging though.
6. The TV show "Black Books" crack me up!
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to birthday dinner for my sister-in-law, Denise, and defacto niece Rosie, tomorrow my plans include not smoking and Sunday, I want to not smoke!
The place to be

While I'm here.... Day 2:
I had 3 cigarettes yesterday. One near the end of work, purely through boredom I think. Scabbed one off the guys next door. Then I went to the pub where everyone I know sits outside and smokes. I had 2 there and then decided I'd better go home or else all my resolve would go rushing down the drain. So I went home and watched TV all on my lonesome :( This could be the problem area. Just about all my social buddies are smokers. I won't see them tonight 'cos I'm off to Ma'n'Pa's for a family dinner. I'll have to think long and hard about how I'm going to deal with this 'cos I don't want to have to become a hermit.
Anyway.... this morning was not too bad. Got up okay, even managed to get to work with no difficulty. I've always smoked most when I'm driving - thankfully it's a very short trip from home to work. Yesterday I couldn't decide which way to turn out of the driveway! Today I was more back on auto-pilot.
I've got shitloads of books to put away - so instead of just wandering outside and having a smoke (which, right now, sounds very appealing) I'd better get to work. Ugh!

Good luck with quitting to smoke. I imagine it's especially hard considering so many in your social circle smoke. Hang in there though; you'll be glad you succeeded in the end!

Have a good weekend.

Thank you both. Encouragement helps.

and mebbe it will help to tell us about it. and as you're hanging out with the group, mebbe you can make up stories about them to tell us. Or something.

Come to the farm! Nice clear COLD fresh air!!!

Julie said...

I'll be there in a warmer season I think Shirl :)

Oh...Shirl had a great idea, but try this...when you go to the pub, and you want to talk to your friends who are outside...tell them stories about US instead of smoking.

keep a straw in your mouth too...that might help!
