Re: [MOL] SMOKE OUT DAY DUSTI?



The best day to stop smoking was yesterday!  Saturday is my due date, have
my patches and all.  Should we give it a try together?  Hard to tell your
mom to stop smoking if your smoking, huh?  I had wanted the Zanban; however
one of its side effects is seizures and I was not willing to take that
chance.  I have enough wrong with me already!!!
Warmly, lillian
