Good luck Woody, it's got to be hard but you can do it!
I was lucky, when I was 12 or so my Dad caught me stealing his cigarettes and told me I could smoke but had to buy my own. It kinda took the fun out of it plus in 1960 in NC a pack cost 22 cents (!), about what a really great burger cost or a few packs cost about the same as a 45RPM record. So I quit before I got hooked.
The world sure has changed too. Back then everyone smoked, I got razzed all the time for being a nonsmoker, especially in the Army. I always had to prove I could inhale a whole cig and wasn't a woose. Today if you smoke you're the one who's shunned.
Yeah it sure has changed but you can do this!
The biggest issue with assembling an AR isn't so much getting the parts together right - it's getting the right parts together.
