I'm going to try and quit smoking. (Again!) I know, I know, save the sermons, it's a shitty habit, it will kill you, blah, blah, blah. I'm not unaware of that, but the truth is, I really love to smoke. My mood is better, I definitely am less stressed, and while I haven't quite kept the weight off I want, I know it contributes to curving the hunger.
I'm sure this is going to be an interesting ride, last year, I think I managed to quit for about 3 weeks. That was far and away my best effort in attempting to quit I think I have enough nicotine in my system from the last 7 days to last me a good month, before I get the shakes.
I constantly come back to this line from the movie "Dead Again" Robin Williams tells Kenneth Brannaugh, "You're either a smoker or you're not, the trick is to find out which one you are and be it" Problem is, I know I'm a smoker (think philisophically), I'm just going to have to figure out how to be a smoker that doesn't smoke.
*Update* Might have to rethink the timing on this one, as the first day it's supposed to happen, you aren't supposed to go above 50% of your normal amount, although a variety of factors contributed to that. With all thats going on now, perhaps it might be more prudent to wait awhile to try and embark on this change.
