But the night is young, as they say.
In all seriousness, add me to your prayers, friends. The last time I inhaled one of my beloved Marlboros was five days ago. I haven’t really experienced any cravings; just a whole lot of wondering what to do with myself. I am reminded of why I started smoking in the first place. I’m a bundle of energy and nerves in my natural state. The nicotine regulated that. Also, I’m still getting nicotine. I decided to become my father. I’ve switched to smoking a pipe. But even there, I only light up at night. I’m amazed I can get through a whole day without, well, see the headline. Its a mortification for me. I need that.
And say a prayer.
Mother of Good Counsel, pray for us!
Our Lady, Help of Christians, pray for us!
