It's time.......

Last Friday during my lunch hour, friends and I stopped by Bath and Body Works where I found a wonderfully scented body/hand lotion called Sensual Amber. I loved the scent and couldn't wait to use it.

Returning to work, I applied a generous amount of Sensual Amber to my hands and passed the desk of one of my staff. "How do you like the smell of my new hand lotion?" I asked. Her too quick response was "I smell cigarette smoke". UUGH!

I then began to wonder if everyone I come in contact with (non-smokers) can smell the tell tale signs of my cigarette addiction.

I don't smoke in my home because I don't want to expose the PUGS to second hand smoke, yet I'm perfectly willing to pollute my lungs. It makes no sense..... time to quit smoking again.

Every year, smokers across the nation take part in the American Cancer Society’s Great American Smokeout® by smoking less or quitting for the day on the third Thursday of November. The event challenges people to stop using tobacco and raises awareness of the many effective ways to quit for good.

Today is the day. I'm going for it; one second at a time, one minute at a time, one hour at a time, one day at a time.......

It's time!

Take it one day at time, that is all you can do.

Congratulations on the decision. It must have been a hard one.

Everyone child, in my classroom, who have parents that smoke, I sure can tell. Their clothes smell and yesterday I noticed that even their homework folders can smell.
