Just a quick word of thanks to everyone out there who has been supportive of my efforts to quit smoking.


  1. go wayne! you don’t need those stinkin’ cigarettes.
    wondering if the potato chips are a prop or a crutch, either way you’ve made the WISE choice.

  2. Thanks, Linda,

    The chips are more of a prop, actually. It may be hard to see it, but these are New York Jets “Official Potato Chips”. I was lucky to get these. Two weeks ago, my local A&P had one Jets bag and about 20 Giants bags of these chips. Who wants Giants bags now? 🙂

    And thanks for the support and encouragement.

  4. Hi Wayne,

    I must have missed the memo. I didn’t know you were quitting smoking. I hope you persevere and kick it for good.
    If you need additional incentive to leave them in the store, remember, every dime spent on cigarettes either goes to taxes or in the pocket of some filthy Republican Executive of Big Tobacco. Keep that thought. 😀

    Hi to Jane!

  5. Thanks, House. That should help.

    I have decided to do this not only through denial but through shear will power. Since I started going to work on Thursday morning, I have been carrying an unopened pack of cigarettes with me to work. So far, I have resisted the temptation to open that pack.

    It’s just one more small part of my personal self-improvement program. 🙂

  6. Good on ya, Wayne. 🙂

    Now I know three wonderful liberal men who are quitting smoking.

    Of course, I don’t encourage wingnut men to smoke, but I don’t ask them to stop either. Heh.
