Smoking, Church and Acupuncture

I have a pack and a half left of my Marlboro's, then I'm done. It's time.  Blah.  Not good for my anxiety, but I have to keep moving forward.  And I'm gonna watch my language.  I know, don't fall over.

I think I may have found a church that won't irritate me.  I'm going to try it out.  You see, I don't think most mainstream Christians would know God if he was sitting next them.  I want REAL.  Not warm and fuzzy, not tolerant of everything God hates, not picking and choosing what suits them out of the Bible.  I'm an all-or-nothing kind of person.  Do it, or don't.  I have problems.  So does everyone.  But I know the Lord, and I have fallen by the wayside.  I need to get up.  I have no need to justify any of my behavior - I just need to change it.  Period.

I am starting acupuncture for some of my ailments.  I was never a big believer in Chinese medicine before, but I've researched it, and I'm starting to think there is something to it.  My doctor recommended it. We'll see.  Can't hurt to try.  I'll let you know.
