10/23: And In Other News...

Sunday, October 23, 2011

I was so amused with what happened yesterday with my ex, that I lost focus on something that was actually important. I quit smoking, haven't had one in over a week. I was really surprised at how well it's going. I was so scared to quit! I thought, what if I gain a lot of weight, or turn into some version of Linda Blair from the Exorcist, but it went better than I thought. I smoked menthol, so I bought a big bag of Peppermint Patties and every time I wanted a cigarette, I ate one. I feel fine, no cravings, no crankiness, and I lost a pound and a half this week. Turns out, like most things in life, the fear was the worst part of the whole experience!

    Good for you! I quit about 7 years ago (I'm 59), best thing I ever did.
