Once again, despite heroic effort and planning, I have utterly failed to win the PowerBall. Even the office pool - 14 participants, 42 quick pick tickets - failed to produce a single winning ticket for the minimum prize. And here I had the boss's number programmed on speed dial to quit in the morning...
I quit January 1, 1991. The physical withdrawal symptoms quit after a couple of weeks. It took a lot longer for the "sh*t, I need a smoke" nerve to die down , but I eventually substituted another addiction in place of the smoking (running ).
