my plan is to have totally quit by my son's first birthday. (nov 9) this is my big birthday present for him. i figured that everyone will get him lots of clothes and toys, which he'll outgrow and get bored of within a few months, but having his daddy around for him is a present that will last a lifetime. i'd hate to one day not be there because i inhaled too many burning plants and got cancer. last weekend i cut myself down from a pack a day to half a pack a day (10 cigarettes) and as of yesterday i'm at 1/3 pack. (7 cigarettes) i'm gonna do that number this week, then cut down to 4 a day next week, then one in the morning and one at bedtime, then be totally done. i'm really excited about this.
