Much to the chagrin of my Little League coach, I quit something. As of Tuesday, I became an ex-smoker. i quit smoking even though winners never quit.
It has been difficult. I have gained seven pounds so far. This means I will be swimming a few extra laps in the Jacuzzias well as spending at least five minutes on the treadmill at the gym. I may even double the weights I use for weightlifting to 20 pounds.
I still have the urges to light up at certain times of the day. I want to smoke when I wake up, when I drive (especially here in New Jersey – there is a reason why auto insurance is higher in New Jersey than in any other state – people here don’t know how to drive!) I also want to smoke when writing blog entries. (This is why I haven’t written in a few days.)
Quitting smoking does have its benefits. I have a few extra dollars I can spend at the nudie bar. Breathing has become easier. My sense of smell has improved. (This is a bit of a negative at the gym when people are sweating like pigs.)
I am going to have to find a way to be able to write without being overwhelmed by the urge to smoke. Masturbation eases the urge, but makes it harder to type. Hopefully as I go longer without smoking, I’ll be able to write on a regular basis.
