Dear Me

OK – you’ve tried everything from cigarest to lifeline to hypnosis before and always failed. You enjoy smoking but your wallet cannot afford it and neither can your health. You have one kind of cancer now. Do you want another. If you opt for reconstructive surgery you know you have to be smoke-free for at least 2 months. So it has been 36 years and the longest you have gone without a cigarette is one and a half weeks while you were dying from chemo. The odds are against you. It is going to be near impossible, but you can do this. Quit date next Saturday. Love you.
