I should stop smoking. I have said that many times and now hearing about Sayyid Hakim I think about it again. Smoking is of course bad for your health (lung, heard, everything) but also I really like doing it. I like the feeling you get from smoking, I like smoking action by itself, and it is a social action with friends and people always offer cigarettes as part of being polite and nice.
Just a thought I had a little while ago. I guess the people visit my blog to read about Iraq and usually that is what my thoughts are anyway, but maybe sometime I will just post other things as well. I hope that I can write about good news from the Iraqi football team soon also. I love watching them play because it makes me happy to see Iraq in normal activities like other countries do. Also it is a good way to get away from all the concerns of life and enjoy something that all people enjoy, especially kids. Would be nice if there really was not big problems in Iraq. I wish Iraqi kids could grow up like normal ones, without having to see or worry about family disappearing, hear explosions, and see horrible things like dead bodies. What kind of adults will they grow up to be?
