Once or twice a decade I get this feeling of fierce determination and can do amazing things to change my life. I get it from my mother. She used to could do this as well. Well, I felt it coming on the day before last. I realized I needed to capitalize on this once a decade "mood." I decided to quit smoking mainly because it has become such a G-D hassle. I had to call mom. Mom would call dad. And dad would usually call me bitching about how much I smoked. The cigarettes I smoked also went up ten dollars a carton the other day and that pissed me off.
"You could afford a new Honda Civic car payment for what you are spending on cigarettes these days," dad told me not too long ago.
All of these things precipitated this sudden change in my life. Let's hope this "fierce determination" lasts for a few weeks- giving me a chance to finally quit that terrible, stinky habit. It is going to take months to get this ash tray smell out of my house and every thing I own stinks! Ughhh!
