Nasty habit = gonzo

So I am uber proud of my husband this week. Not only did he start classes after 6 years of being out of college, but he quit smoking. Though he wasn't a heavy smoker by any means- he was more of a "can I bum a cig off of ya?" type and smoke-while-he-walks-the-dogs type and chill on the porch with friends and have a smoke type. Regardless, he felt he was too addicted. Goes to show even "casual" smokers can get addicted. This has been going on for years and his brother encouraged him to read "The Easy Way to Stop Smoking". Well, the book made an impact and Mark walked in earlier this week and said "I'm done". Of course I snapped a picture. I'm so incredibly proud of him for noticing his habit getting worse and wanting to change. He's already passed his book on to my dad. Apparently it's a very successful method of quitting (the author smoked many packs a day before quitting).

So that's my brag for the week. My husband rocks.

Bye Mr. Camel, you're never welcome back here.

If you or anyone you know smokes, get them this book:

Hooray! My husband quit a few times before we got married and hasn't smoked in over a decade. I'm so happy he's made this decision. Good luck to everyone (especially you during the cranky times:).
