« Part 9: spending to much time in the house Part 10 of hello again series Part 11: new e-mail address »

Well hello everyone. We have moved into our new home, and living alone at last. I have my own garage, where I have made me a desk where I can wood burn more pictures, I have done a few more and will postthem in a few days. I have not started back smoking yet, and it is still hard. The last one I had was on May 6, 2009, and still going. ok I’ll let you all go and will keep in touch more often. Your LJ friend, Jim

Hi Jim, glad to hear you’re still smoke free, hang in there, it does get easier. Will be 3 years for me in Feb. and what I miss most is my Pepsis since being diagnost with Diabetes. LOL

Hello Jim;
—-glad to see your hanging around here, and a new home, plus your own garage and looking forward to more of those wood burnings.

Smoke free yes, I got out of that habit some 20 years ago….walked away from it one day. It does get to a point where the smell of wood burning is much better.

Jim Welcome back. I’m glad that you are finally getting a stable place to live.

Be safe burning. Let that be the only smoke to hit your lungs and them use an air mask also.

Welcome back Jim!

And don’t even think about smoking!

If people were meant to smoke, they’d have a built in chimney.

Congratulations on staying smokefree! My last was over 13 years ago, and the good news is that somewhere along the line, it just becomes “something I used to do” and the date becomes unimportant.

It’s tough, but the benefits are worth it!

Also glad your back Jim – and as all other have stated – make smoke through your wood burning – but do not inhale it. Keep working on those projects – the more you do the better you get at it…
