Its now or never !!

Just been to shops for dog food and groceries, about to drive home when realised i forgot cigarettes. Paused then just drove home, went out on patio and picked up all the dog ends that had been discarded at side of overflowing ashtray. Reminded me of my army days litter picking around camp ..... cigarettes were a lot cheaper then too. Lost count number of times have stopped and started smoking again over last 30 years or so. I will stop now, for the sake of my health, smelly breath and clothes and my poor wallet.
