Cliff,I'M STILL SMOBER!!!Everything else is just gravy . . . I think you're wise to avoid drinking in the midst of your quit. I quit drinking several months before my quit and it kept me from losing my focus. There's an old Buddhist tale of a monk who was thrice tempted. I can't remember the exact wording, but he was tempted by a beautiful girl, an ox which he could have slaughtered and ate, and a bottle of wine. He thought about it for a while, and he knew that sex and eating the ox went against his principles, so he figured he could have the bottle of wine. After he downed the bottle his inhibitions were gone and he had the girl, killed the ox and ate the meat. So while the wine, in itself, wasn't bad, the intoxication led to the bad . . .(I'm sure I was going to make a point with that story.)Don't stress too much about the weight. If you find a fitness activity you enjoy some of it will come off. I can't say all, b/c I'm not there yet. But running is so much more enjoyable when you don't hack up a lung in the process.Early congrats on your Bronze Medal, just a few days away.Ezra One year, two months, two weeks, five days, 13 hours. 5792 cigarettes not smoked, saving $796.46.
