Friday's GLASS HALF FULL Parade

<r>Great idea Marty! <br/> <br/> Glass half empty? My former use of the nasty cigs as a "smoke screen" for emotions. <br/> <br/> Half full? Feeling and owning all of me and finally being comfortable in my own skin with no additives.(<IMG height="19" src="http://sc.communities.msn.com/themes/pby/img/...

"You Were a Lot Healthier Before You quit Smoking!"

<t>Linda, would you believe someone actually said I looked better when I was smoking because of my weight gain. (I have gained 20 pounds but at least I have lungs).
