Chuckles and Chortles

Happy Monday, everyone! I hope you had a lovely weekend. And if you didn’t, I hope this week brings you better days. Today I take pride in celebrating my 8th year of being an ex-smoker! WOOT! The best thing I ever did is to kick this nasty habit to the curb, and never look back.

Even though it’s no longer socially cool, I still notice some teens lighting up. This really saddens me. They don’t realize what a terrible addiction smoking will become over time, and that they’ll inevitably become a slave to it.

Listen to me, kids:
Put down the cigarette and step away from the tobacco. For good. Right now. DO IT!
Don't make me come there...

Well, while that message is transmitted around the internet, let’s laugh out loud...








My husband this winter...

Wishing you all a fabulous week!

  2. Love all these LOLs! You always find the best ones. "Introverts: Assemble!" Hee hee!

    Congrats on 8 years of being smoke free. The stupidest decision I ever made in my life was starting to smoke. The smartest decision I ever made in my life was quitting. So I understand the magnitude of your achievement!

    1. Don't you just love the one about the introverts? Had me in stitches.

      Anyone who has ever smoked and eventually quit knows how tough it can be. Good for you, Debra. It certainly is something to be mighty proud of!

    1. 18 years? That is terrific, Lorraine! WOOT WOOT!

      How do I stay slim? Hard work... Exercise, watching what I eat, and staying away from sweets as much as possible. It's not easy, and it takes discipline, but I do it!

  5. SO pleased you kicked the habit, Martha :) I started smoking very young and was able to quit with Hubby's help (we both stopped together in our first year together). Only the youngest of my four boys smoked as a teen, but he has since quit. BIG plus :)

    Love that last funny. We consider winter "over" when the shovels are no longer parked next to the front door *TeeHee*

    1. That's great that your son quit. It's terrible when it becomes an extended habit. It's that much harder to quit later on!

  8. Good for you to kick the habit... I just don't get it when I see teenager smoking these day... When our girls were teen, we told them they didn't had to hide if they start smoking... but they would never smoke in our non-smoker home, we would never buy them any nor pay for it... it seem to have done the trick... ouf!!

    The Chuckles were specially welcome today... Thank you Martha

    1. That's great about your girls, Richard. Thankfully, my daughters never picked up the habit, and I hope they never do!

      Always happy to make you all smile. We need to do that regularly; makes getting through life so much easier.

    1. 30 years! Good for you, Carolyn. I always like hearing about people who quit this terrible habit. Once upon a time, smoking was socially popular; very much so! Thank goodness that's not the case anymore.
