October 31st is a day I will always remember with pride. Four years ago on this day I quit smoking forever. It was probably one of the most difficult things I’ve ever done. I was a very heavy smoker and always smoked at least two packs every day, but I was smoking three packs per day by the time I quit. I’d buy a carton on Monday morning, and on Wednesday evening I’d have to buy another carton because I’d be down to a single pack. I was a mess. I think back to that time in my life and I have no idea who that guy was; I can barely recognize my former self.

I had a great workout yesterday! My left shoulder was hurting pretty bad, but I powered through it. I know that goes against my own recommendations, but I don’t want to spend a lot of time messing around with eight more months of treatments that don’t really do anything to fully correct the problem. If I blow it out completely then they’ll have no choice but to operate right away. I know that sounds ridiculous, but that’s eight months of frustration talking and I’m prepared for the possible outcome. I don’t suggest that anyone else follow this course. Surprisingly my shoulder actually feels better this morning than it did yesterday morning before my workout. Go figure.

Don’t forget, today’s the last day to get in on Jeremy Likness’ “Become The Journey” Halloween Special. It’s a great deal, so if you’ve been thinking about buying his e-Book you’ll want to check it out.

Today I’m going to watch some scary movies with Lisa, and I also have to replace our garbage disposal. I’m not looking forward to that project, but it must be done. See you in November!
