I Quit Smoking

2012 is a year of changes for me.  I am 3 days without a cigarette.  Today was my first day back at work without smoking and I would be lying if I said that I didn't miss it.  I liked smoking at lunch and after I dropped off Lil Punk in the morning.

It's a little bit embarrassing that I still smoked.  I didn't mind if I was at the bar and somebody saw me smoking.  However, I didn't want any of my co-workers to know or anybody else that I know professionally. 

I will do it.  And reward myself with a trip to New York City!  More on that later...

Have you ever struggled with an addiction?  Other than Facebook?  LOL!

  1. Awesome!! Good for you! David Sedaris has a great essay about quitting smoking in his book "When You Are Engulfed by Flames." He's so funny, and this essay is part travelogue part quitting smoking.

    I know you can do it, and you'll be happier, healthier, and richer because of it!

  6. No doubt you can do it. NYC is an awesome reward too. I think this is a positive move for you to make and it seems like you truly want it.

    Congratulations.

    I believe I can say I had mild addictions, nothing totally serious or detrimental to my health but addictions none the less. I broke them though, like Charlie Sheen I believe once you decided in your mind not to do it, you can.

  7. Congratulations - that is a HUGE accomplishment!!! I had a friend whose (ex) husband had an addiction to cocaine and cigarettes. He kicked the cocaine habit but not the cigarettes (he said it was impossible), and his health suffered mightily.

    Keep thinking about all the rewards you're giving yourself already and not the cigarette industry - most importantly, your HEALTH!

    And the savings for that trip to NYC isn't shabby, either....
