Five years and 235 days in a row have passed since I quit somoking.
I was able to keep at least 3-minute jogging-on-the-spot for the fourth straight
day as part of prevention meausres against low back pain.

It's actually hot with the predicted highest temperature of 34 degrees in Nagoya.
I may have to escape this summer heat to somewhere.
Very happily, the pain of low back is almost gone but there is a very little
pain in the spot near the bottom of my backbone.
Besides, the canker pain after I bit the under side of my upper lip is also
almost gone, so I hope to enjoy something like hot ramen.
Anyway, I have to survive today's scorching heat first.

I have succeeded in preventing myself from smoking for five years and 234 days in a row.
I was able to do a total of 80-minute walking for the first time in a week
after the pain in my low back has almost gone though still just a little is here.
I tried jogging-on-the-spot for three days and I hope to continue this as long
as possible and increase the time.
Anyway, callous persons are really nuisance for plain common-sense persons
and should disappear as soon as possible.
I know some callous persons occupy a common space and after that, they hang out
the laundry in the common space....Unbelievably callous.

I was able to keep no-smoking for five years and 232 days in a row.
The low back pain was still there, but since the pain had been milder, I tried
walking for twenty minutes and began jogging-on-the-spot for 3 minutes for the
first time in about one year.
The pain is still here and after the effect of Rokisonin, the pain gets severer.
I may have to see a doctor to get some painkillers.
Anyway I may have to wait and see at least for one week, that is, until Saturday.

It has been five years and 231 days in a row since I broke my bad habit of smoking.
I have not done push-ups for the fourth successive day and hope to resume them
as soon as possible before my arms' muscle has been weakened.

However, in order to do so, I have to wait for the low back pain to completely heal.
Actually, still the pain is here though it's getting milder and milder.
Now, I've decided to do jogging-on-the-spot soon after the low back pain has
disappeared as part of taking preventive measures against the pain, because
I've learned from a Website of a doctor that jogging can be an effective
way to prevent low back pain.
Though I made a check item of jogging-on-the-spot about a year ago, I have not
done it .....I really should have done some continuously.....
Anyway, I have to try something new for a better life.....after the pain.

Five years and 230 days in a row have passed since I shook off a bad habit of smoking.
The low back pain I got last Saturday is still here and it's really severe.
After I use up the painkiller pills of Rokisonin, I'll have to see a doctor.
Even so, I feel I'm lucky this time because I have some Rokisonin pills,
which has really been working so well.
If had not had this medicine, I would have been suffering from an unbearable pain.
Anyway, I really hope the pain will disappear very soon....if possible, now.
