Real quickie here.
Just posting to let everyone know (and hope that you all keep me accountable): I’m quitting smoking.
Phil is too, and already this morning, we did the circle and snarl. This evening he snapped at the dog.
Day one is almost over though. It can only get easier.
Other than feeling a little “floaty,” I think I’m doing well.
Come Tuesday, I’m heading out of town, training for the. My hope is that by the time I get back, we’ll be done our initial and respective detoxes, and things will be looking up.
Our motivation? Phil added up what we spend on cigarettes between the two of us for the year: over $8,000. That could have covered all our contingencies this year (Nuala’s ALC repair, the gazebo, Bucket). Instead, we put everything on credit cards and then transferred it to the line of credit after.
We really couldn’t afford all this.
With the elimination of smoking, though, that $8k can go toward the line of credit and/or the credit cards to keep our debt down and eventually reduce it to $0.
The goal is lofty, but we’re going to do our best.
Wish us luck!!!!!
