Now, I Take My Life Back

i avoided taking road trips while i was quitting smoking, since driving anywhere more than a mile was a big trigger to light up. driving 100 miles round trip to the nearest Wal-mart was at least 1/2 pack of smokes.

oh yeah...if you're new to this blog, i live in the sticks.

i avoided blogging while i was quitting smoking, 'cause surfing the web was also a big smoking trigger. click to next site, light next cigarette...even if i had one burning already, sometimes.

surfing the net looking for news stories to make jokes about was the basis for my blog, if you are a new visitor.

so, i must face the demon head on. if i have to give up what i enjoy just to avoid a nicotine fit, then i haven't really beaten nicotine, i've just run from it.

and, i am not French.

i made the 100 mile round trip to the nearest Wal-Mart Tuesday, just to do it.

needed new shoes too, but that wasn't important.

did Headlines that night as well. i hope they were funny, nobody has left a comment to let me know one way or the other.

basil, as always, caught the fact that i had posted for the first time in 2 weeks, and linked me to his blog.

once again, thanks, blogdad!

triggers, a recovered smoker now, and will soon be back to reclaiming my title of king of bad puns. dont know who has it now, but watch out!

thanks, y'all!
