Just wanted to brag a little bit – I’ve quit smoking! I didn’t write down the exact day I stopped, but it’s been about a month now I think! I cheated once or twice a day the first few days, but nothing after that! I still crave them just about daily at one point or another – especially when I’m mad or stressed. But I haven’t caved.
This is a pretty big deal for me, because I’ve been wanting to quit for years, but could never manage to make it past a day or two without wanting to strangle someone – so I’d go buy some cigs to get out of that mood…. But I think this time I’ve actually done it!
I’d been smoking for about half of my life – since I was 14 or so, so it feels strange not to smoke. I’m kind of a punk trapped in “the Man’s” world, and smoking was always the little bit of rebellion I could get away with in life. So now that I’ve quit I have no evil hobbies, and feel like a bit of a wuss hehe. Wish I could find a better way to word all this, but I’m sitting at my desk at work listening for others to come around the corner so I’m being a little “short”. I’m really not trying to say that if you don’t smoke, you’re a wuss. Smoking is gross, it makes you stink, it makes your teeth yellow, it makes your face wrinkly, and most importantly, it makes you DIE.
I’ll just have to find a replacement evil hobby. Hopefully one less lame than posting on my web site when I’m supposed to be working hehe. I’m now taking suggestions for a new evil hobby, so feel free to comment…..
