Entry for May 23, 2007

Last Memorial Day I was called out to my workplace due to a major power outage. At work things get very-bad very-fast if there is no juice to run all of the pumps and compressors. Since everyone wants holiday-weekends off, it was hard to find someone working for the utility company that could troubleshoot the outage. Further, our department had only a skeleton crew available so it took some time to transport and set up the diesel powered emergency generators.

Other that the fact that I was burned out from being called out on emergencies on holidays and weekends for over 30-years, this episode was just plain stressful. I took solace in demon tobacco. I had quit cigarettes 10-years earlier, but saw no harm in choking down a cigar during this over-nighter.


One year later I am still hacking down a cigar a day. May not sound like much, but I had beaten my lungs and other vital organs for over 35-years with cigarettes.

My goal is to quit cigars by this Memorial Day. There is plenty of nicotine gum in my pockets and the will is strong. Wish me luck. I wish good luck to you.

Thanks for listening.
