This is the first day I have really been on my home computer since right before New Year’s Eve. You see, I stopped smoking in my house on the 31st, and I quit smoking altogether on the 10th. Smoking really goes with computing, so I have been avoiding all computers other than at work.
So far quitting smoking has been hard, as I should expect, since I had been doing it for over 10 years and was up to almost three packs a day. I had quit about five years ago, and it felt sooo easy, and I guess I anticipated that it would be like that this time. Every quit is different, supposedly, and as QoB pointed out, I wasn’t smoking as heavily at the last quit, and have smoked for an additional five years since that time. Whatev. It’s hard. That’s all I really want to say about it.
Today was a day of struggles and triumphs. I didn’t smoke. I walked for 30 minutes with my dad and had a good chat, and I spent time with Dr. Love, even if it was just a little bit. Ham and beans on the stove (and in the crockpot, as an experiment) and laundry is kicking. I blogged (albeit not a very long or interesting one), and now it’s time to do some serious reading.
My heart wasn’t in this one but I’m still glad I did it.
