Today's the Day
Today is Big Sis's birthday and the day I quit smoking.
She promised me a trip to Paris next year if I quit, so I can think of no better incentive than that.
Oh sure, there are health issues that smoking makes worse and should cause a person to want to quit, but Paris, damn!
So far it's not so bad. I'm wearing a nicotine patch and I took half a Valium I'd been saving for an emergency.
I'll probably sleep a lot and isolate for a while, and try not to eat everything in the kitchen.
Years ago I had this friend who was a top level executive for AT&T. She was a chain smoker and decided to quit. She found herself craving smoke so much, she decided to start smoking dope as a substitute. After about two weeks of smoking six joints a day, she was mush-brained and too laid back to be a good executive.
I think I'll skip that option.
If anyone who reads this has quit, please give me tips, besides the patch and a prescription for Valium.
Wish me luck, kiddos.
