Excellent! Hugs for making it through your hospital visit. I had no idea they would remove the smoking label line that. How supportive.

The 96% Club!

January 31, 2015

When we pass those first 365 days we call it the 6%Club. That's because only 6% of those who begin to quit smoking make it through that first critical Year! A rough but true statistic - and something to be proud of when you do make it! [Our results seem much better than that, BTW, from my EXperience. Maybe it's because we know what we're doing here!] 

Here's another impressive statistic that hasn't been emphasized here yet but maybe it should!

E-cigarettes May Be Linked to Respiratory Infections -- Latest Study

January 31, 2015

A new study found that electronic cigarettes can be harmful irrespective of whether they contain nicotine. E-cigarettes are considered a healthy alternative to the traditional cigarettes but research suggests otherwise. It was revealed that the liquid used in the e-cigarettes can cause lung infection.

For the study, cells from the airways of healthy non smokers between the ages of 8 and 12 were taken. They were then exposed to the vapors from the e-cigarettes, and the doctors... Read full post

Oh Yes I Can!

January 30, 2015

Was talking with an old Navy buddy of mine the other day. He lives in Florida now and I'm in Minnesota but we talk on the phone from time to time. Years ago he told me that I would never be able to quit smoking. He is totally blown away that I have.

I also had a Navy corpman tell me I would not be able to quit. He told me I had waited too long, and I had smoked to many years to be able to stop now. Funny thing is I was only in my mid twenties at the time. 

I've been smoke... Read full post

Working Toward a Tobacco-Free Generation: 51 Years of Progress

January 30, 2015

By: Vivek H. Murphy, MD, MBA, U.S. Surgeon General

Eliminating tobacco use seemed like an impossible task when the first
Surgeon General's report on smoking came out in 1964. Almost half of our
population smoked, and tobacco use was everywhere from airplanes and
restaurants to sports and magazines. However, one year ago this month, when
we released the Surgeon General's Report, The Health Consequences of
Smoking-50 Years of Progress, we recognized how much progress... Read full post

Prayer Request for Tommy W/Update

January 29, 2015

He's in the hospital, went into the ER a several hours ago with a high temp, they ran tests, he has a blood infection.  He's hoping it's not MRSA.  They're keeping him overnight.   I asked if he wanted me to put up a prayer request here - he said "prayers may be needed."    He's been having a lot of physical trouble of late.  Pray hard.  I'll keep y'all posted as to developments.

Don't you feel violated when something you expected to be in it's place is stolen?

January 29, 2015

My brother and I each have small propane grills for an occasional steak or grilled veggies. Mine was my Christmas present to myself. The one time I used it was on Christmas day to make a steak.

Someone stole the regulator and 2 full bottles of gas.

All I could think of was, I wonder who had the opportunity to even know they were there. Mine was hidden behind the stairs and not easily seen unless you've passed it a number of times and happened to notice it.

I'm upset that I... Read full post
