Hi, thought this was interesting, so recirculating it.
I live in Farmington, NM US
I am Swedish and live in Sweden now since a few years but have lived all over the world. For example, I lived in Ireland for nearly a decade.
I spent some time in and around Farmington, NM when I was a student in Denver back in the late 1980's. I no doubt bought a pack or two of cigarettes there. Sure wish I would have just been a visiting nonsmoker!
Happy Sunday to you,
My husband and I were raised in Wyoming, different towns. He worked in oilfield, so we were transferred to Utah, then Colorado for most of the 90's, then transferred to Farmington in 1998 and still here. He is retired, so no more transferring.
I was single at the time, and a bit nomadic, putting off growing up as long as I could. I spent my summers in Anchorage, Alaska and moved there after my Denver graduation for no other reason than because it was fun. In the mid-90's, I could no longer put off growing up, so I moved here for career purposes, met and married my wife, and have been here since. Why oh why did I not stop smoking then? I sure would love to be on here reporting that I have been a nonsmoker for 25 years rather than just my 25 days that I can legitimately claim.
We all wish that we had never started. The thing is, we are doing it NOW! That old saying, better late than never.......
