« Day Two Of No Nicotine | Main | Sweet Dreams Are Made Of This »



The ubiquitous oral fixation usually seems to be a decent tradeoff...for me it was Werthers or Peanut Butter nips. Of course having had a root canal this morning I'm wondering if that was a reasonable trade off. But a hard candy sure lasts longer than a piece of chocolate. Of course that being said, hush up and pass me that 72 ounce bag of Nestle Morsels from Costco...poppa needs a chocolate fix. ;-)


Ha, yep, I'm using lollipops. They have a stick you can hold and play with. That really seems to help.

I learned something I did not know--that it only takes 3 days to flush out the nicotine? Well--that doesn't seem too bad. Of course the "rest is in your head" will be the hard part.

I will join you soon on this odyssey--of course by my quit date you will already be well on your way.

Please keep at it--don't be like me and put it off for another 20 years!!! It may be too late for me to get better health, but the desire is there--I want to live another 20 years!!!!!

At least the withdrawal hasn't effected your writing--still very good.


Waaaaay cool, Lisa! Hang in there!

If I can do it, you can too.


Hang in there, Lisa. As for your higher power---He's there, just pushing you forward!


I bet you are starting to get that nervous energy thing goin on...the things i got done during that stage...i hated the "sighs" part where your body just remembers the puffing...and goes for that extra air...just be kind to you and to martin...and don't kick the dogs... you are almost there! the first week is hard it gets a little easier every day... you two can do this...


It's getting easier everyday. I don't give it much thought now except when those habitual times come around. You know, reaching to check you have an ashtray, thinking about that post dinner cig, reaching for your pack half asleep first thing in the AM. These too shall pass I have no doubt. We are on the winning side of this thing so we'll be fine.

What I'm Reading

  • Edward Ugel: Money For Nothing
    Subtitled, One Man's Journey Through The Dark Side Of Lottery Millions. (****)
  • Susan Braudy: This Crazy Thing Called Love
    The true story behind the Billy Woodward shooting, the case on which Dominick Dunne based his novel, The Two Mrs. Grenvilles. (*****)

    True story about the mysterious life and death of a young woman who's real identity still remains unclear. Excellent read. (****)

  • Annie Proulx: Close Range, Wyoming Stories
    A collection of lyrical short stories from Annie Proulx that contains Brokeback Mountain among other gems. (****)
  • John Grisham: The Innocent Man
    I can only quote from the jacket blurb: "If you believe that in America you are innocent until proven guilty, this book will shock you. If you believe in the death penalty, this book will disturb you. If you believe the criminal justice system is fair, this book will infuriate you." A must read. (*****)
  • Nancy Caldwell Sorel: The Women Who Wrote The War
    Fascinating look at women journalists at the front during WWII. (****)
  • Jack Olsen: Charmer
    Riveting true crime by a master. (****)
  • Ann Rule: Too Late To Say Good Bye
    Excellent telling of the Bart Corbin cases. (****)
  • Michael Crichton: Airframe
    Ehhh. Better than the back of a cereal box, I guess. (**)
