Just got back from seeing The Simpsons movie and Transformers. The Simpsons was really funny and Transformers was super fun. I'm just feeling those two huge sodas, popcorn, nachos and malt balls we ate. Uggh.

I'm going to try to quit smoking next week. I started a medication called Chantix that's supposed to work really well.

Finished watching the Tour today. I'm pretty happy with how things turned out. I wonder if there's any way to fix the doping scandals, other than ignoring their use, like most other pro sports do.

Good luck with the quitting smoking. I hope that you do well - are you going to gradually do it or just go cold turkey?

We saw The Simpsons also, and i laughed at some parts. I haven't seen an episode of the The Simpsons inyears!

Thanks. The way this medication works is you take it for a week then quit. I always think of cold turkey as just quitting completely with no aid. So the answer is, neither. ;)

Let us know how Chantix works for you. Allan is getting ready to do the same thing with the same medication. The docs I transcribe for have had great success with it over the past year or so.

Yeah I heard the same thing from my doc and pharmacist. Good luck to Allan! Smoking is such a pain in the ass(but it's so fun!)

Everyone I know who used Chantix was successful at quitting. I took it for 2 weeks and it made me so sick I stopped taking it. I still have 6 weeks worth of pills left though so I might try again. GOOD LUCK!

You can totally do it. Chantix is supposed to be really good stuff.

Did you drown your popcorn in that greasy monkeysweat they call butter? And salt too? That's what I'd do!
