Ahh... the Good Times


Sitting on the front porch and enjoying a cold brew and a smoke... too bad they must always come to an end... I've been smoking now for too long than I'd care to say, but I will admit to the fact of turning 40 next year - and I'd like to be smoke-free and on a path to being more healthy when I reach that horrific milestone. I've been on Chantix for a week now, which I've tried once before and seemed to work pretty well if I can just get over the feeling that there's something I should be doing.... strangely, this medicine also affects my taste for beer - which I've always loved.... anyway - it's a stressful beginning for a week nonetheless, and here's hoping that I can exhibit some strong will and determination to kick my habit....

You can do it Brian! I have faith in you... like I'm one to talk.

Two friends of ours had 40th birthdays while we were in Berlin. It doesn't seem to be that "horrific"!

Hopefully your taste for beer will come back... now that's horrific!!

If anything affected my taste for Jack Daniels or Southern Comfort it would have to go! As a fromer smoker, who has the occasional lapse you have my sympathises. I still miss my little friends in a box, but I chew a lot of gum.
