The Sweetest Thing

So remember how I've been loving on some Zicam??? Well the guy I work w/gave me the plague & I've been delirious in bed w/fever, coughing blah blah blah. Sooooo...I've been too unconscious to smoke (bad squishy!) & realized last night as I was tucking the (as yet unplagued) boy into bed that I hadn't had a cigarette in several days...

Moi: Hey T, I haven't had a cigarette in 2 whole days isn't that great!?!
T: Whoohooo, now you won't have to die & go to heaven & have to talk to Jesus with that thing (trek) in your throat & being all arggg argggg (talking gobbly gook through trek)! :)
Moi: um ...high five right!
T: no..we'll celebrate day 11.

Thank you TRUTH advertising for scaring the total piss out of my 6 yr old child! I'm quite certain he'll never smoke!

PS kid is a freak'n genius if I do say so myself!

Wow, that's tough. I'm a smoker too and at 31 years of age I'm still getting lectured as if I'm 5. Are you still smoking or are you still going strong???

Day 6 & counting baby! No smokes yet! ...I was absolutely psycho sat. though! Even my skin was crawling ...withdrawal is bad! What do they give you for withdrawal from tobacco & nicotine?? Crack!?!

Would you consider acupuncture? I tried quitting a few years ago and had my first acupuncture session to try and help ease the withdrawl symptoms. I only needed a second visit and I was completely cured. I know, I know, I still smoke, but it's not because I couldn't handle the withdrawal. It was because I actually MISSED the social aspect of smoking. Amazingly I can have a whole pack of cigs today and not think about it or have a single craving until the next time I want to smoke, three weeks down the road. It's weird. Worth a try, though.
