Fight like a Tiger

Posted in Hints and tips 25 Apr 2017

The other day I had a stranger asking

me for a smoke.

It was so exhilarating to say, "sorry, I don't smoke" whereas on occasion I've given someone a smoke.

I am a huge Australian Football League (AFL) and my team are the Mighty Tigers, Richmond Football Club.

I was watching my boys play last night

and win 5 straight so far for the season.

I was a wonderful feeling not having to

fight through the crowd to head out for

constant smokes!!!

I'm so impressed with their athleticism

and added my team to my inspiration

list for remaining free.

I'm finding that I'm really starting to find

more and more reasons to remain quit.

My list is full of pros and zip cons.

Loving the feeling of freedom!!

    Ahhh, yes. The good old days. Like trying to sit through a movie. By the end you are not even paying attention. You just want it to end so you can get out and have that smoke :) I have even risked getting thrown out, just to get a quick puff.. That would make a good story.. The life of a smoker,, ( The Way We Were ) Funny.. We could not see it then. Now it seems so foolish.. I bet that was cool. The first time to say, "sorry, I don't smoke" .. I have had young people, over the years, get really mad, because I would not give them one..
