I gave up alcohol completely about 18 years ago. I worked all over our fine country and after work, I was alone and the only thing I had to do was in a can and the television. Quiting, it was very hard to do, since, the very first day that I tried to quit, I found something out, that I really was a functioning alcoholic. and now I am a sober alcoholic, that does not drink and I do not even eat anything made with alcohol as an ingredient.
Now, here is what I give thanks to God and my friends here at LumberJocks for doing for me. I have tried to quite smoking on several occasions in the past, but never was able to. It was the only vice that I still carried around with me. Feeling guilty about it. I truly was addicted. Now, after being a 2 to 2 1/2 pack a day smoker for about 49 years. This past Tuesday night, I put them down for good and asked for help when I went to bed that night. The next morning, I received the help that I needed. That’s 4 days ago and I do not even crave one . I do pat my pocket once in a while, (LOL) just from pure habit. I am a none smoker now and with everything going on in my life the way it is at the present, will never pick one up again!! “Folks”, keep those cards and letters heading skyward. I have each of you in my prayers. God Bless you each, and your families.
P.S. one more item. My wife smokes and it is not bothering me one little bit. I will be talking to her soon about laying them down, also. (LOL)
