Dear Abby 4/8/16

Smoker who’s tried everything is desperate to become a quitter

DEAR ABBY: I need some advice about quitting smoking. I am the father of an only child and husband to a wonderful wife. But for some reason, I have not been able to find the motivation to quit. I know smoking is bad for my health, and I don’t want to endanger my child’s health any longer.

Children with special needs have the opportunity to pursue their dream of flying thanks to Flying Vikings. The nonprofit organization with its expertly trained pilots will be at the San Marcos Airport on Saturday, April 16 to give children free plane rides. Lunch and arts and crafts will also be provided.
