Well, I’ll be 35 in a few weeks and it’s time to quit smoking. Again. I’ve had limited success in the past: once for three months, once for six weeks.
I smoke, on average, a little under a pack a day. The worst thing is, I find myself having three or four before I walk into the office in the morning. There is no smoking in my office so I venture outside a few times during the day and I smoke like a chimney at lunch and during the drive home.
I don’t smoke much at home but when I do, I go out to the garage. The house doesn’t stink but my clothes do, as does the interior of my car. I also run two or three times a week and have begun to notice my lungs aren’t what they used to be.
So, any suggestions from any quitters out there? I’ve picked a target date, I’m stocking up on hard candy (butterscotch) and my wife is on full alert. At this point I’m not overly concerned about weight gain, but I have experienced the need to choke the shit out of someone when I tried quitting before.
Wish me luck.
