Thing about losing weight is that you can't quit cold turkey.

I told her no thanks. And I haven't bought another pack.

Well, one pack in jail. But I didn't smoke them, I sold 'em.

Camel light. Although they're not allowed to call them light anymore. Blue.

Last 2 times I smoked Marlboro light /gold. Red when I first started. Winston's are dry and horrible. I'd go without first.

"what did/do you guys smoke?"

Largo or Four Aces or Smoker's Friendly tobacco + Gambler's or Smoker's Friendly King tubes = (by way of a Tops cigarette maker) fine, cheap, coffin nails.

Coffee & cigarettes: a way of life.

In chapter 9 he's talking about inner avatars. Describing them the way Tolle describes the ego. They want to live! They'll fight you. Thinking is hard. You have to be honest. You have to have internal dialogs. All that. Then he says the only thing harder than thinking is Not thinking.

I lolled.

Camels, then Marlboros for a few years, back to camels, then filtered Camels. After 57 years I quit because of shortness of breath but that turned out to be a heart problem and a pacemaker/defibrillator took care of that. But stayed off them for 4 years then back to Camel filters. Some people claim there's a woman to blame, but I know it's my own damn fault. After a year of $80 a week I switched to vaping, which is cleaner, loaded with poison(nicotine), and killing me cheaper, but not before replacing the battery in the heart box for $265,000.

Bottom line, quitting cold turkey (gave away 3/4 of a carton) was not a problem if there was a good reason.

Last night I was listening to Peterson read his book. Amanda came out and said, "is that Saul Goodman?"

I thought he was so familiar because he looks a lot like Neegan. But it's his voice! Jimmy Mc Gill. Bob Odenkirk. Yup.

And now as I listen, I'm picturing Saul in a garish suit, addressing a jury. Sheesh.
