Nice! That's great man. For a long while I was smoking or dipping every day. I cut out the dip entirely months ago, and now I smoke whenever I go out to see shows or have band practice, but that's 2-3 times a week and I smoke a lot then. I recently had 3 weeks off when visiting my family and thought about it like once. No idea why it's so hard to just drop it, but I want to.
Nice, I am blessed with never one time in my life, no matter how heavily I used tobacco, feeling withdrawal from nicotine, just cravings but nothing even remotely physical. Which makes it even dumber that I have a hard time quitting!
Being able to work and go to school. It's easy for me to complain about my responsibilities when I am stressed or things are difficult. Really being able to work and go to school is a privilege and I should appreciate the opportunity to do so.
I'm thankful for the new band I joined. Had our third show last night in a popular venue and it went so well. Got some mini-tours, lots of shows and a few festivals lined up for this spring and summer. I'm thankful for the opportunity I came across to be able to do that.
I'm thankful that I had such an amazing father. He passed away last week and at his wake and funeral literally hundreds of people came up to me and told me stories about how he affected or saved or helped their lives. I found out about more charities he started or was involved in. He was a truly great man, and I'm so lucky to have had him as a dad. I love you dad, I'm happy you're not suffering anymore.
