Prosit.

To your very good health, my friend.

Welcome to the two new followers I've received in the past week, and welcome back to everyone as well. Thanks for sticking with me and reading.

I've decided to take on another quest along with the A to Z Blogging challenge in April - I'm going to give up smoking. I quit for a long time (over three years), but started back towards the end of 2010. I'll keep you updated on the progress.

I realized, thanks to an email from a good friend, that I need to be kinder to myself, my body, and my mind. I know it'll be hard to give up smoking (AGAIN), but it'll be worth it. It's time to be good to myself again.

And it's time for you to be good to yourself too. Treat yourself to something special today, or just do something to make yourself feel good. We all deserve to celebrate ourselves every once in a while... just look at all the shit you've been through. It's amazing you're still here, still trying. You are a champion. You deserve a toast.

Prosit.

Good luck to you with quitting! I'm married to a smoker, so I've seen how hard that is, even if I've never done it. I know you CAN though, and your health will thank you!

Thanks for the 'toast.' I need it today! And congratulations on choosing to quit smoking! Looking forward to reading your A-Z entries.

Cheers to you too! Quitting smoking is a bitch, but it's good to think of it as something nice that you are doing for yourself rather than as a sacrifice. Good luck. I found that the one thing that could replace a cigarette for me when I was totally tweaking out was driving around and singing at the top of my lungs. That and finding something fun to do with all the money you're saving!

Good for you! I need some determination, myself...relating to writing.

I had to come check out your blog. I've seen your comments here and there and decided I had to meet the other 'B. Miller' out here....

Cheers!

You can do it, but even if you don't, you're still perfect
