hello, old friend...

... how I've missed you so.



I broke down and bought a pack of cigarettes after over a decade of abstaining.

I quit about 3 years ago, and I have to admit I still get the urge for a cig sometimes.

Ken said...

Say it ain't so Kat, break 'em up and throw them away. I just "re-quit" again about 2 months ago. But, up here in NY we have an extra incentive to quit: $10.00 a pack within the next few months.

You'll hear from Terrance on this one.

Blessed Matt Talbot please come to the aid of CC!

You may always have the urge for a cig. But, please offer it up. My dearest uncle past away this past March. All due to lovin dem smokes.

They Boy wants you around, even when he's all grown.

Lola said...

Sorry,

Vernerable Matt Talbot please come to the aid of CC!

My dad died at 55 of a heart attack. He just couldn't give up the smokes even though the doctors kept telling him and telling him and telling him.

CC - if you need a reason to quit go look at your son. He needs his mama. You want to be there at his graduation, his ordination, etc.

A decade!! good job. Finish one cig and wait another 10 years.

I quit a year ago. But I bought a box of charcoals and incense.

I understand.

Kat,

Father Corapi ranks smoking as a mortal sin.

And if Father Corapi says it, I think I'd pay attention. http://www.stoneyriverlodge.com/2006%20Spring%20Bears/JohnCorapi_m.jpg

I enjoy tabacco. I also enjoy oysters.
I do not, however, carry a can of oysters around in my shirt pocket. I keep them put away, next to my can of oysters.I enjoy them as I please.
Funny thing about death. Some people claim to die of cancer, or car crashes, and so on. Us Catholics believe God grants us a measure of graces and sins for each one of our lives. When we accept or reject the last grace, and we committ or rebuke our last sin, then we die.

Enjoy your tobacco, oyters, or whatever else you enjoy, just don't over do it.

The only thing wrong with tobacco is Liberals.

May God our Lord in his infinite and supreme goodness be pleased to give us his abundant grace, that we may know his most holy will, and entirely fulfill it.

Owen said...

Pablo, you sound like a sane Catholic. God bless you.

Tara said...

Oh, so sorry! You'll grow to hate your friend again--and send him packing soon!

Pablo said...

Dear Owen,

Thank you for seeing the practical humor in my comments....

I really enjoy Caroline's blog.

Hope to hear from you again someday.

God bless you and all those who follow this young lady's blog.

I quit on December 31st 1999.

To this day I could cheerfully murder for a cigarette (and frequently enjoy smoking dreams); only the thought of my little children one day calling some other bustard "Daddy" keeps me on the straight and narrow.
