Great American Smoke-Out today!

Yes, I know this is supposed to be a knitting blog; but there’s that ‘life’ part, too, up there on the header, ja?

And this is near and dear to my heart.

If you smoke, you already know it would be a good idea to quit.  So no lectures.  My husband smoked for over 25 years, and I know how addictive it is, and how hard it is to stop.  But a few years ago, when he became an ex-smoker, as he put it at the time, I almost cried with happiness because I want him around to see our children grow up and get married and for us to have a happy, lusty old age together.

So if you are a smoker and didn’t smoke today, or cut down, awesome.

If you do smoke, please think again about quitting.  Do it for someone who loves you.

  1. What a great sign! Bet your dh smells better too, huh? I am so glad I never took this habit up… I think I have a hard time breaking addictions (for me, caffeine, sugar).

  2. ….chocolate, yarn….
    there are some addictions I don’t care to break,
    I admit!

  3. Yay for your husband! My sweetie and I are both ex-smokers; tobacco-free for 30+ years. Both my parents smoked — a lot — and both of them died of cancer, Dad of lung cancer plus he had emphysema. I can get rather vehement on the subject of the evils of [Big] tobacco but I’ll spare you that.

    Great post.
