Thanks

October 27th, 2016 at 10:42 am

Thanks everyone for the warm welcome back. Ultimately we lost discipline. Someone asked about my health focus - I am 280 days free of my addiction to nicotine. I'm still very active over at the quit chewing tobacco site. In fact, I've tried to send a couple of the guys over here.

One of the expenses that ended up on my credit card is a gold cap on one of my molars. The molar directly closest to where I held my wad of tobacco for so many years. So, I have no doubt about the cause of the deterioration of the tooth. The cap cost about $1,100.

You would think that quitting the tobacco would allow me to save money. Unfortunately, I've been buying a lot of junk food and sugar free gum to subside the cravings. Basically, I've spent up to half on alternatives to keep my mouth busy as I spent on the tobacco itself.

So, this is day two of my concerted effort to stop buying the junk.

Thanks again for the kind words and thoughts.

    Wow! Impressive 280 days without nicotine is a HUGE accomplishment. You can do that you can get back on the money track. I was about 2 or 3 when my mom quit smoking after I asked her to in the car because I was coughing. One of the biggest accomplishments of her life at smoking since 16 (she was 27 when she had me and smoked during pregnancy, it was the 70s). She always says how proud she was that she did it for me and my grandmother did too at age 50! She's alive because of it at 88. My grandfather passed at 77 from COPD and 2 pack a day habit.

    So you've changed your life! Congratulations and good luck.
