Winners Never Quit And Quitters Never Win

Yesterday I think I finally made up my mind to quit smoking. I'm tired of hacking up nasty crap every morning, spending a ton of money on a dangerous habit and generally feeling like a pariah in public now that smoking is no longer "cool." I've tried quitting various times in the past with varying degrees of success but I think this time is going to be it. I'm just fed up with it.

I'm not looking forward to the withdrawal though. I've been consuming large amounts of caffeine and sugar all day just to keep myself going. I'm shaky and grouchy as well. Soon I'll be eating a ton more food and will probably get fat. But I just keep telling myself that the withdrawal beats getting lung cancer.

So here's to hoping that I can finally get this monkey off my back. I'm just going to try taking this one day at a time and hopefully I can quit for good. It shouldn't be so bad I suppose, I've been chewing tobacco to take the edge off. Thank God for that stuff; it tastes great and it's completely harmless...

Good for you. At Specialty Bottle for $8 some guy drank a cup full of rain water that had been drained off of a growler full of cigarette butts. I don't think he smoked again after that.
