The mist in my mind slowly clears as I sit up. The smells and sounds are
un-familiar and not pleasant. As I stand up bewildered this strange female
approaches me and touches her lips to mine speaking some strange sound. I am
not frightened by the skins she wears or lack of hair but rather the
casualness of her approach. Every sound from the strange bird and animal
sounds makes twitch in its direction. I wonder if I'm talking with the spirits
as I sleep.

Deciding that I am cruelly awake and not walking the spirit realm I start
to examine my surroundings. There is so much to tell I feel that I must just
high light the big ones as I walk around this strange cave. Flat shiny wood
with very strange items on it. One of these items has a moving picture, it is
a Fish! Flat though, and it's movements are the same, over and over again. The
fish is to small to eat anyway. This colorful strange covered moss rock. Oh!
It is so nice to sit in it! I see two other similar moss covered rocks.

As I continue sniffing and tasting all around me a small four legged
animal runs towards me from some other part of this fascinating cave. Ah!
Food! I reach for the club at my side in its animal skin string. It is not
there! No matter, my fists quickly clench as I ready my strike..... but I
pause as this little animal licks my leg and then sits there looking at me.
Very strange. I decide I will ignore it for now, I am too entranced by all
these things.

I approach a way out of the cave but it has a shiny skin on the bottom
with a invisible skin on the top. Mmmm, doesn't taste like much. Leaning on
the skin it pushes over but does not fall to ground rather moves to the side.
This amuses me for a short period of time. Walking out to the outside I see
that I am high up on the side of a cliff. Many other dwellings I see from my
vantage point. Strange beasts travel below, noisy and smelly. Others as my
self seem not to notice. I stumble a-bit and fall onto this very bright
looking growth. It is hard but smooth. Hmmm, comfortable.

I pick up a small berry colored stick, smells like ouch light. Accidentally
I do something with it,,,,,,,,,,,,, And IT makes ouch light for a moment!!!!
Carefully I repeat the movement again making the ouch light. A smile crosses
my face. Much easier to carry this then red black ouch on leaves! With out me
knowing it my hand grabs a strange box with small rolled up leaves of a bright
ness like the clouds that have no color. Before I know it I find myself putting
one in my mouth and using the ouch light stick on the end.

I realize that I am breathing burning trees, but for some reason I do not
stop. It stinks and does not taste good. But I do not stop until it smokes no
more. With my mind screaming Danger, Danger, I find that I have this wish to
get another. The moment is broken by the Female appearing again holding a flat
thin rock with ... Food! This I understand! After making some sounds and
giving me this food the Female goes back in the cave.

I look at the strange food, it doesn't look right, or smell right. This
flat spongy food on top I taste a bit. Tastes strange. Decide that it is not
food. Next is some leaves which though taste different do taste like food.
I eat it all. A dry pale looking flubbery skin, feels like skin from a very
different animal then I have known. I will not eat this. There! underneath I
see animal meat! My stomach makes noise. It must come from a thin animal.
Upon putting it in my mouth I spit it out right away. What? What is this? I
start to think about getting that four legged animal. It would be an easy catch
since it does not seem to be afraid. Hmmmm...good idea but first another one of
those smoking rolled up leaves.

Hello there!
Thought I'd wake up and say hello. Lurking for awhile. But I've decided to
stick my head up over the log to join the village. My eyes are bleeding from all the
reading. I think every body is in different circumstances and each approach should be
customized.

Here's mine please let me know what you think.

1) I smoke rollies, $16.00 lasts me 2 weeks. Have quit for short periods before.

2) Have been eating garbage my whole life, only recently started to stop listening to
the canadian health department.

3) Single income, barely scrape by every month wife 3 teen kids cat and dog.

Goals;

a) First, start eating 60% vegtables and cut out all sugar. No more breads.

b) Second, start moderate walking (50 or 60 min) on a nice slow uphill trail.

c) Third, Stop using the elevator only 3 stories but eh what the heck!

d) While accomplishing the above try to find proper meat that we can afford.
Yes I know, quit smoking and use the money towards meat. I agree. But still
doesn't cover the cost. Meats expensive here.

e) Quit smoking, during the above I can lower my smoking as much as possible.
Whisper whisper PSSSST Come over here and listen to this (Cutting down is not hard,
STOPPING is) Addiction to Nicotine and the worst is probable the Habit.

f) Start a gentle introduction to working out.

g) Pray to the spirits for guidance and encouragement.

h) Update Grugs awakening every week for bragging rights to others still asleep.

Thanks for listening folks.
End of rant and foot stamping.

Don't forget, a little baking soda helps you get balanced and damn it sure clears the headaches.
