Smoke Free, 40 days and 40 nights.

Filed under: Me stuff — m0j0 @ 10:17 pm

So my commitment to be smoke free is proving much stronger than my commitment to keep this blog updated ;-) Sorry ’bout that.

I’ve gained some weight. I’ve done a lot of things to make sure my mind never wanders in the direction of smoking. It’s kind of like a mentality migration. It’s hard to do mostly because of inertia issues. Your brain is so used to doing certain things on a certain schedule that it becomes troublesome to change. For a few days there I was even what I would call… depressed. There was a definite ‘mourning’ that went on. It was weird.

All that’s gone now. Don’t forget, though, I only smoked a half pack a day, so I was a light smoker, really. I would’ve been surprised if I had been still feeling big-time withdrawal effects after a month.

What’s great now is:
1. I sleep about a million times better. I don’t know why that is.
2. I never smell like smoke, which is good because nobody I work with smokes, and I didn’t like smelling like smoke.
3. I don’t have to go outside and freeze my butt off so I can smoke.
4. My whole body seems to function a lot more smoothly in general.
5. My brain is able to focus a little better (this after about a week of not being able to concentrate at all).

Well, good luck to anyone else out there taking the plunge. It’s hard, but it’s worth it.
