Still non-Smokin'

For those who don't know, and I think most do at this point, it bears noting publically and in writing that I quit smoking as of Decmeber 28th. I took the patch for four days, and on the fifth, which was New Year's Day, I was so hungover I couldn't even think of putting one on and that was it. Nothing since. I've detoxed the nicotine out of my system at this point and have had no problems with cravings. I am surprised that it went this smoothly. I talked to a gentleman last night that told me that he stopped for ten years, only to resume for another eight. That is a disheartening prospect, but I have hope for myself and know that what I am doing in the now is benefitting myself. Plus I can smell all kinds of stuff again that would otherwise slip by my weakend olfactory ability :)

The trick I found is to go cold turkey long enough so that when you do relaps and have a cigarette it tastes like ass and you don't want to finish it. Then always remember the ass taste over the nicotine craving. Funny, I crave the white chalky longenzes over a cigarette when I think of how great smoking is.
