Three years of abstinence

.


Traditionally I blog on September 5 to note another year has passed since I walked away from my old friend, demon tobacco.  This year that date came and went without a thought.  During my walk this evening, I decided to jog for a while and noticed that I did not become winded; running felt natural.  It was enjoyable.  That event reminded me how long it has been since I had a smoke.

Should fate bless me with another 21 years on this earth, my association with cigars will resume and I plan to continue that friendship until the end of my days.  Until then I need to make the most out of what is left of this ambulatory old carcass of mine.

Congrats on quitting. I celebrate every year. My quit date was july 4,1998. I still have my last cigarette in my tool box. Any time I feel like doing something stupid, I go dig it out and remind myself about doing stupid things.

The only thing I really miss is a good Dominican cigar with a glass of bourbon. Especially when sitting in front of a fire after a day hunting.

Greetings from Texas,
It makes my day to read this Zack. I have had so many friends try to quite over the years and always start over again.
It's great to hear about someone who made it.
