Playlist - April 26 - May 31

It looks like I have taken several weeks off and have not done what I was supposed to do in writing this Blog! Since I have decided to be 'smoke free', this challenge has consumed all my spare time and I am busy changing habits. The cravings are great, however, since January 5th I have been smoke free! I confess I have had 4 1/2 smokes over these months; so my achievement is not perfect at 100%, but I really have done quite well and I am pleased with me. I am continuing to work at this challenge. Tonight I decided to add the six weeks of Playlists since April 26th. Enjoy!!
