It has been long enough now that I feel I can share this info with the world. It has been one full month since my last cigarette. I wanted to quit for a while, but would always find some kind of excuse to keep doing it. The fact is, I really liked to smoke. Yes, it stinks, it makes the smoker stink, it’s bad for your body, and is all-around no good. But I liked it. A lot.
There are many reasons why I made the decision to quit. The one huge reason was that my house was beginning to smell like a bar. I had never smoked in the house prior to this year. It all started when I came home from the hospital. I had no way to go outside to smoke, so I just did it in the bed. I know, bad idea. I’m full of them. Flash-forward about nine months and yes, stinky house. That had to end.
My method: cold turkey with a side of e-cigarette (for about two weeks).
It has only been one month, but I already feel the benefits of not smoking cigarettes. I do have a little more of an appetite now, but that might not be a bad thing. I probably do need to eat a little more. My roommate keeps me stocked up on Snickers and Twizzlers. He’s a good man.
I’m on my way and my breath doesn’t stink. Good start.
