Hump Day Pledge
Good morning everybuddy
Happy Hump Day!!!!!
Up and going for the day today, not the fastest but I am going. Heading into my office and then I am off to a class to help and support our teacher again today and help her reorganize the room. Smoking will not be part of my day today or any day thank you much. Smoking causes smoking and does nothing for me so I will never again buy into the lies of addiction. Saying NO to smoking and YES to living the dream on the Freedom Road. I offer my hand to the next winning quitter joining me in kicking ash to the curb.
Have a great day

    I'm happy just to feel normal today!  I got a flu shot on Monday and have been below par. I had my first ever shot last year with little effect, so maybe they amped it up this year with COVID still a big factor?  No matter, I'm glad for the extra layer of protection. As I get older I realize the adage, 'if you have your health, you have everything!' Is 1000% true!
    Needless to add that smoking does not fit anymore, is not welcome anymore - no thanks and NOPE!  Make it a good day everyone😊😊

    Nicotine free! I pledge to stay that way. Healthier and wealthier. My sister-in-law is in the hospital. She woke up unable to breath. Scary. She has a patch on now and the reality that smoking is no longer a choice is becoming clear. She is worried about weight gain. My brother is worried about losing her. Danger has come knocking on their door and she is indispensable in our family. Heart health is an issue in her family. Four out of five kids smoked but two have quit. One after the heart attack. So the cards on on the table. It is worth it and it is doable. Quit if your family needs you.

    Hump day indeed, it's been a busy stretch for me.  I had a job interview yesterday with the Division which was a small form of torture.  I had never done on virtually either so that added an extra layer.  I feel okay with how I did so will be good regardless.  The stress of waiting and preparing for the few days before hand was not fun but I didn't not smoke.  I did think at one point about how much more I would have been smoking if I still did.  Crazy to believe I don't but I don't!  And there will certainly be no smoking today!  Off with mom tomorrow for her last round of chemo and then back to work on Friday.  Come on weekend....
