LOL Holly. I was thinking about making the list just about the 100+ scars on my body but decided you would be bored by #49.

Anywho, I quit cold turkey. Just put 'em down after 10 years. My dad did the same thing after 31 years of smoking. Good luck with that!

I think I might just have to do that. The last time I quit (after my daughter was born and before I got preggers with my son) I did it slowly, going on a schedule and breaking my "habit" times and then just stopping one day. But that doesn't seem to be working for me lately (I smoke more now than I did back then), so I think I may just have to go cold turkey.

Since I'll be all alone next week, maybe I'll do it then. Then no one (except my co-workers, who deserve it) will have to deal with my bad humor. LOL

LOL...good luck with that!

Have you tried hypnosis? Worked for a friend of mine.

I'm confused. You think that teenage sexuality will be embraced by this generation and will be accepted in the next 50 years (No 41 on your list).

As far as I'm aware teenage sexuality was embraced by the last generation and has been accepted for at least 30 years (or are we living on different planets? ).

There again, I'm in Europe : the States still seem to be 50 years behind the rest of us.
