Beyond ready. Every day is harder and harder and I need a break. I’m afraid I’ll start to smoke again if I don’t go. When I’m logical and rational I know better. But it’s harder and harder to stay logical and rational joyjoyjoy

You saw how close it was for me the other night..But I worked through it. Smoking is the most stupid thing Men kind ever did. Your break will be everything you need, especially in nature breathing cool clean air..

I believe you are correct. 
I just didn’t get that enough this Summer with the 2nd job and all the training. Now Summer is gone! But! Wowza. You see that Moon last night? Was even amazing still this AM at 6:30. 
You are coming over to the Left Coast soon, right??? Will you get to the Ocean? I have many fond memories of Laguna Beach and San Diego. Took a train from Detroit to Oceanside CA back in my yoot, lol. Met a Marine on the train and played cards the whole way. Had a blast. So so many people I’ve crossed paths with and wonder where they are years later. Ahhh. Those were the days! Smoked the night away in the club car. Took a train again in 2012 from Portland to Chicago but could no longer smoke on it. Was fine with that. Lots of changes are good sometimes.

Yeah, will be fun to have you in my time zone!

Oh, and yes. Close only counts in horse shoes and Tiddlywinks, so you my friend are just fine. Sail on. We will get each other more humps I’m sure.

Freezing??? No way. Get in!!!!

Im way up the Coast and I will still get in without my wetsuit for a short time. Maybe only 15 minutes or so. But so amazing and worth it!!!

That water down there would feel like bath water compared to the Oregon Coast. 
DO IT.

I will ask some friends from there. I’ve not been that far South in 20 years so I’m sure things change.

Honestly, my friends….I am so GRATEFUL I am not smoking anymore.  To be doing that on TOP of the current insanity that is pervading this country would be too much.  Some days it is too much.  The biggest deterrent is I do not want to make it worse by smoking.

Love your strategies, Eve.  My 2 smoking friends hand me their lighted cigs so I can take a big whiff.  Lol.  To echo you, Eve, this is Definately not for everyone but works for me.  I always ask if it is secondary smoke time?  Yes, kinda sick, but I do not pretend to have it all together.  Lol.

You are doing GREAT Dorly…hang on!!

Thanks Peg,

Whatever works for you, as long as you don't smoke. Personally I don't like the smell of smoke, only the nicotine hit...I'm hanging on, I have to.
