“You’ll be baaaack….” 

Today, for like the fourth time this year, I have quit smoking.  Again.  Sorry, Will.  I’ve been really good lately, going weeks and weeks and sometimes months without a smoke.  Then something, usually work-related stress (or some other cop-out that I use to justify my need for delicious, glorious smoke), occurs and I buy a pack.  I usually smoke one on the way to work, one on the way home and that’s it.  After a week or so, I stop again and everything is good.  That is until the siren song of Parliament-y goodness calls me back upon the rocks, just one more time.  This last time, though, I was on an accelerated decline and after two weeks I was back up to a pack a day.

I know what I’m doing, I can quit whenever I want.

So, today I’m quitting.  I figure with the boss being on vacation, I have two weeks of no real excuse not to quit.  Wish me luck

The only reason I tell you about this failure upon which I am about to embark is that I don’t want you to be alarmed.  I realize that my posts of the last few days have been optimistic, full of love and even, to some degree, saccharine.  I just wanted to let my dear readers know that, in the coming days, a hint of bitterness, nay, even anger, might creep in to my erstwhile happy demeanor.  Do not panic.  This will pass and, soon, I will be back to my normal, amiable self.

Til then, as representatives of the external, I hope you all die in a fiery crash.

I’ll be the one standing there huffing your smoke as you burn.
