Major Dad 1984

Cursed By A Classical Education

Let's just say that I intend to use this blog to blow off some steam that I might be feeling with the International/National media, my work situation, or maybe even to tee off on the family in a humorous way of course!


I Quit....

When the last cigarettes in this pack are gone...I'm a non-smoker. I'm sure there are some of you out there that wouldn't cry a tear were I gone...but there are enough people out there that would.

I'm counting on some encouragement from the huddled masses that sneak in and out of here.

See you...on the smoke free high ground!


Okay...last one at about 7:10 a.m. this morning. No more money coming out of my pocket to fuel this awful habit!

Thank you to those of you that have shot me short messages of encouragement. I do appreciate it.

Yes, I'm a little tougher than a 60 yr. old woman...and Fox...I know it's going to be a long 8 days. I've done this quitting thing numerous times and quite successfully I'll add. Usually about 10 years of sobriety (nicotine) each time.

Smokefree on the high ground....


Update...going on 13 hours. I AM SO FRIGGIN HUNGRY!!!! 7 1/2 more days? Usually I'm okay by Day 3...anybody that I know might want to stay well outta my way for the next day or two. I'm in a pretty bad mood. Wonder why!

Your faithful scribe...on the high ground.

Well friends...the increased hunger certainly seems to have me in its grip...

Thank you for the support...


Almost 36 hours now.....'s tough....hungry....hungry....hungry with a VERY, VERY, VERY short fuse. I think I'll be through the worst of it by the weekend....

What am I going to do with the $6 I've saved over the past two days????

From the smokeless high ground.


48 hours into this....I think I'm through the worst of it now. Thanks for your support and kind thoughts.

Back to blogging about important stuff...


Okay...60 hours just around the corner...and it seems like I've got the monkey off the back and on the run.

So much for being a non-smoker again. Simply saves $3 a day at this point...



And here is the rest of it.

Good work, Major D. All traces of nicotine leave your body within 8 days so if you make it that far, you're home and dry.

Kick ass!

MY mother did it at 60 years old, i think you'll agree your toughter than a 60yr old woman right?

Good luck, friend.

I understand it's tough, but worth the fight...

I strongly URGE you to attend a HYPNOTISM course to help you asap! I had all kinds of trouble quitting until I attended one. You still have to do the willpower thing,but it changes your subconscious view of smoking from pleasure to pain,very effective aid in my quitting,fairly cheap.
