Smoke-free...7 months and counting.
Do I miss it?
Strangely, no. I spent more than half my life smoking, and I don't miss it one bit. I will confess I did break down during my visit to Chris & Vic's last month. The night Beth graduated, after those shots of tequila I was feeling particularly bullet-proof (which tequila tends to do to me) so I conned my younger sister into giving me a cig. Immediately, the smell, the taste, the bitterness, reminded me why I quit in the first place. BLAH! :::shiver::: Once in a while I think about cigs, but that thought always evaporates from my mind. Best yet, haven't gained a pound or even an ounce since I quit. Quite the opposite, actually. I lost 15 pounds.
P. S. Speaking of Vic, did y'all know he dropped by and left me a comment? :) It's in the last Georgia entry. I'm so lucky to have him for my brother! Although I do think he needs to update his profile, as he retired from the military in 2003 (hint, hint).
The radio station just announced the line up for this year's Hot August Nights, which takes place at the end of August. Friday night, Lou Graham from Foreigner, and Saturday...drum roll please...the one and only Temptations. Oh yeah!!!! Last year it was Loverboy on Friday night (missed that one) and Saturday night Peter Noon of Herman's Hermits, who really put on a fantastic show, actually. I was amazed and impressed. An aging rocker he is not, at least not that night. He was in fine form and quite a showman (but then, maybe I've been out of the entertainment loop for too long). ;)
