As I said in a post on Scent of the Day -- I hit the jackpot today. A candle/tart order arrived and with it, a music CD I had on order for quite a while (my other passion is music) and my oldest daughter in Connecticut had 3 books sent to me from Amazon: one hard cover True Crime called "Never Enough" by Joe McGinniss; a large paperback,
"The Best American Crime Reporting - 2007" compilation, Linda Fairstein, Editor; and "The Easy Way to Stop Smoking" by Allen Carr. My doctor is emphatic that I have to stop smoking, after this bout of pneumonia (as if I didn't know myself) and this book is supposed to have miraculous results on his "Easyway" (non-guilt) method, according to my cousin for whom it is working -- so please, if you think of it, light a Blue for me for a few hours when you've time (as I just did) that it can work for me, guys.
I will update bye and bye on how the books were for you True Crime lovers on the Forum, like me.
You CAN do it! I have quit twice and quickly learned that I could not only be a social smoker. It'll be three years this May that we quit the second time. Both times were cold turkey. I won't lie, it was tough. However, we did it over a weekend so we basically slept the first couple of days away. It helped.
My Mom also quit over a year ago. It took her a year of trying after being diagnosed with emphysema and COPD before she did. My Dad also quit over 5 years ago and he smoked 4-5 packs per day for over 30 years. I have always felt if he could do it, anyone can.
Keep us posted and know that you have your very own cheering team here!
