driving home, i popped over a hill and a buggy load of amish were i the process of attempting to make a u-turn. got stopped about 3 feet from the back of their rig before screeching to a halt. after they got to the top of the hill, i passed them and there were at least 10 people/kids loaded up. eyeballs in the horse looked like a meth freak.

guess it was a good day for me/them. shit.

Did they at least have their turn signal on?
They were probably blaring the radio too loud to hear you coming.

they had one of those orange triangle things on the back. unfortunately, they were broadside in the road. if they would have gone on up to the top of the hill, where there was a place on each side of the road to turn around. hell, i don't know...maybe old nellie lost a shoe, or they were giving young abraham a driving lesson. it was almost a f@ckin mess.

Heh, I quit Copenhagen after chewing for 30 years, cold turkey on Monday. It has been an "interesting" week on this end as well. I have avoided people on a face to face level as much as I can this week. I haven't beaten anyone down and I'm still married. So far, so good.

Yeah the patch would help I'm sure, but by doing it this way, I will get through the pain a lot faster and be done with this bullshit. This way is faster, but a real mother fucker, if I may be so bold. Not much sleep, night sweats, light headedness, and very irritable. Oh well, I'll either be in jail for murder, or cured in another week. :rockon:

It ain't no point to me waking up,
Everybody's time I'm taking up,
I got nobody, it ain't a shoulder near,
I can't stay here & it's colder there,
I don't wanna look back 'cause it's gonna hurt,
I slice my wrist & it's gonna squirt,
For me everybody holds a hate,
I get backstabbed & everybody holds the stake,
It's no roads to take, I'm in a circle drive,
Busting at myself & I'm trying to survive,
I'll disappoint you, & I will let you down,
And I ain't got many home boys coming around,
You don't understand, so don't say you do,
I swear I'll put a motherfucking slug in you,
I'm the only one,
The lonely one,
At home alone loading a gun, thinking "Why not?"


I got court coming up, I stole a truck.
I got a bitch pregnant & I'm broke as fuck,
I wanna get high but I got piss test,
I'm always first name on top of the shit list,
Get this, the witch has made my chest
It's permanent nightly visiting nest,
It ain't no clothes that I look good in,
I'm the motherfucking big red train that couldn't,
I got no family, I stole they shit,
Restraining orders & I still won't quit,
I hit rock bottom & then I fell in a hole
And then I fell through the floor of that hole some more,
I been missing for a year, nobody's looking,
I got beat down & my shit tooken,
I look ahead & all I see is more of the same,
Or this self-inflicted bullet hole pouring my brain

I dream about cutting heads off with a shovel,
The dreams are getting serious, think I'm in trouble,
I don't hold memory for more than an hour,
I'm tired as fuck & I'm drained of power,
I ain't half way there & I'm all out of time,
I'm like a crushed light bulb, all out of shine,
I've been around the world but no place is home,
I wanna see the other side when I face this chrome,
I'm butt naked, I've been jacking off, getting drunk,
It's my last hours alive, who gives a fuck?
It don't matter,
I'm doing the shit in the garage,
Trying to make it easier for them to clean my head splaage,
This bitch I loved, I hope she finds me,
Still up in the chair with my thoughts behind me

Yeah that was my deal as well. Get up, put in a dip and drink coffee, chew all day, nonstop, go to bed. I started getting a cough about a year ago and can't shake it. I figured cope may have something to do with it. Hell. I needed to quit anyway, so why not now.

Nope, no meds at all. I think swallowing all the cope juice started messing with my throat. I could also be allergic to something in the house. Etiher way, it was time I quit. A can a day at $4.79 a pop was bullshit. I'm taking that money and tossing it in a jar for a year. At the end of the year, I'm going to buy myself some nice. Perhaps a new lead slinger. :)

On the other hand if I falter and take a chew, I made myself a deal that I would give the money to something I hate, like a bunch of anti hunter three huggers that are trying to close ATV trails. That will sure as hell keep me out of the can!
