The last time I was home, Autumn was riding with me in the car, and I was smoking a cigarette, which is something I rarely do, seems I only smoke when I'm home, or out in a bar.  Anyway Autumn looked at me, and said your getting that smoke in my hair.  I told her I was sorry, then she said, "you do know that is not good for you?".  I told her, "I know".  I told her I was going to try and quit again at the new year.  She said well it's hard, I'm still trying to stop sucking my thumb.  So I told her 2006 was going to be the year we did it.  She was so cute.  She really was trying and I didn't catch her with that thumb in her mouth but a few times, and that was at bedtime.  So what are your struggles for this New Year, are you breaking a habit or trying to overcome anything.  I've done good, No smokes for 12 days.  That hasn't been hard, mainly because I don't really smoke much anyway.  But hopefully this will be the year I don't smoke at all.  And who knows maybe Autumn won't suck that thumb either.  Struggles definately seem to be a big part of life don't you think? Mike is on the job search again, so keep him in your thoughts that something good comes along.  One where he is happy and content.  Dang I want that job too!

Luckily I don't have to add "lose weight" to my resolutions. I haven't been this light since high school. I smoked in my high school and college days and like you, I didn't really smoke much. My pack would go "stale" before I smoked them all. I quit cold turkey in 1990. Wasn't as hard as I thought. Only when I'd be at the bar with friends who were teasing me with cigarettes. ARGH! I don't miss the smell of smoky clothes. A Job where one is "happy and content?" Sounds like a non-salary position to me. Good luck with Mike! Derek, I think you know what my resolution is, and hopefully that can be achieved. Thank for the ear!

Derek~Kids can do it! When my son was 5 & 6 he made such a big fuss every time I lit up that I quit! I did start up again after that years later, but then quit again. Now proud to be a nonsmoker. Best of health and luck in 2006~xox Sassy

It's sooooo funny how good Autumn is at giving advice.  She's a little too grown.  Good luck on stopping smoking.  Love ya, Lance

I smoke way too much and need to quit but I get a panic feeling when I think about it.  Good luck to you and Autumn and Mike's job hunt :)  Jeff
