NOTE: TO ALL THOSE THINKING OF JOINING THE OFFICIAL SITE FOR INSIDE NEWS, DO NOT BOTHER. LYSSA NEVER BOTHERS WITH HER PAGE THERE . ANOTHER UPDATE THAT DID NOT MAKE THE OFFICIAL SITE, BUT MADE HER FAN SITE. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY THINKING YOU WILL GET BLOGS FROM HER OR ANY OF THE CREW ON THE OFFICIAL SITE.
This blog was posted today by Baby Lyssa. It seems obvious to us that Lyssa figured out how to use spell check or this was ghost written for her. There are complete sentences with valid points. Good for her. It is regrettable for official members she has no interest in her own official site. More thoughts on that from my assistant are upcoming. The following is a nice safe story after the abomination she posted and pulled on election day.

Ok, so a lot of you probably know that my dad is struggling to quit smoking. He came very close but, after he was arrested for the mexico ordeal, he kinda stopped trying to quit, he smokes like 2-3 packs a day!!!!!
What a lot of you may not know is that I smoked. I started smoking for all the wrong reasons, when I was only 13yrs old. I think a lot of people know I didn’t have what you would call a normal childhood, (whatever that means) and so smoking went along very well with the other extracurricular activities I was involved in.
Anyways, I quit smoking 5 Thursdays ago, and it is going very well. I used the gum and the patch together and after about 2-3 weeks it got a lot easier. I still grab a piece of gum sometimes, especially when I’m around Dad, and chew for a minute then spit it out……yucko.
Why I’m writing this is for three reasons, one is that I’m so proud of myself and I want everyone to know, now especially that I know I’m not going back, also to help encourage people to QUIT NOW but mostly for my dear father.
The reason I quit was I met a woman who was recovering from lung cancer(50 year smoker) and I had to spend sometime with her and I could not fathom smelling like, or needing a cigg. while I was with her.
I had just dropped Abbie at school and instead of lighting up my “kids are out of the car,,,,finally” Cigarette I drove myself to longs drug store and bought some nicotine gum. I ha a full pack of smokes and I did finish that pack having anywhere from 1-3 ciggs a day. When that pack was gone that was it. I couldn’t bring myself to buy another pack.
If my story helps anyone, I did my job. And let me just say I HATED those “quit now” commercials and people always saying “that’s gonna kill you” UGH that irritated the crap out of me. But sure enough everything I see someone smoking I think “uh-oh that guy may die from lung cancer” and ” Will I see him in the obituaries for lung-cancer in 10 or 5 or god-forbid even sooner”
The worst part is MY DAD STILL SMOKES. He is the only one left. Duane-lee and Leland both quit about 2 years ago, and Beth HATES ciggs almost as much as she loves the color pink. So he is the lone-smoker.
I’m asking for all stories I can print out and put in front of my dad and maybe one or more of them will make him quit. Pull out all the stops here people, I want the most heart wrenching stories that you can think of. I really think it will help convince him to quit
