That's the very same one June...after I watched it...I gave my Spitzy pooh a big and loving hug...ohhhh...so moving...

My grand daughter downloaded it for me from Vuze when she found out we'd been bragging about our beloved dogs on c-d...

My husband used the electronic cigarettes. He said they didn't really help. It gave him something to do, though. Holding the stick and blowing the "smoke." Obviously, it didn't give him the nicotine, but the act of smoking kept some of the anxiety away.

He only gets cravings every once in awhile, now. Mostly, when he's around other smokers.

(I've been craving cigarettes for a few months, and I haven't smoked in over 10 years! I don't know what's going on. Maybe the stress is getting to me.)

My friend...for those of you who have jumped over the hurdle...please don't even think about it!

Yesterday..just to give me something to loath about ()...I dared smoke one cig in the den and closed the window and the sliding glass door to main house with just the fan on. After an hour or so I could still smell the smoke...yuck!

That should make me smoke even less...

But, as I told June, being immobile has made me stop and get real. I've been studying and reading and studying and reading. That's been a very good thing (I think). So, I'm looking on the bright side of things, for now. I just don't know how much longer I can do that.
June hears ya! When she had Guillian Barre, it is sympomattically just like MS, which is what they initially were afraid June had. June can tell you that for those years of her life when she was in pain, and couldn't walk, that it more or less went very far towards "re-defining" her life....If anything, it made June far more aware of what the rest of the world took for granted. If you can sustain yourself in reading, studying, then that's a good thing, as those things ALSO come from within you, and they are hardly "useless" endeavors!

If June could take your pain away, and give back to you the life that you had, and continue to want to have, trust her: She'd do so in a heartbeat!

Truly....

June is definatley thinking that incorporating the "straw thing" along with the Chantix should help....She already is feeling crapppy about thinking how, come Monday, it's "bye-bye" to smoking, but as the saying goes: "A June's gotta do what a June's gotta do!"

Thought so.

In the documentary that June saw ages ago, they also mentioned a dog in (?) Scotland or England whose owner was a constable. When the owner of the dog died, people in the village noticed how the dog would curl up on top of the his deceased owner's grave each day. They eventually buried the dog right next to his owner's grave, in the same cemetary....

It's amazing how loyal these animals can be. It amazes June...

It's that sense of "trust" that makes us love our dogs so fiercely...we let go of reservations and give that precious love fully that at times...only our pets can truly reciprocate......

Cookie is currently sleeping next to me on the sofa - so she adds a snore or two to the conversation! Yes, she really does snore!
