55 Days

I don't have anything profound today - maybe later. I'm taking my last final in a few hours. That will mark the end of my junior year and the beginning of my senior year!!

I am also approaching another major milestone: I have been cigarette free now for 55 days. In about one week, I'll have surpassed my previous record and from that point on everyday will be a new record. I haven't spoken much lately about this latest effort to quit smoking for a couple of reasons: First, because I really don't think about it all that much anymore - and thinking about it sure doesn't dominate my every waking hour like it did at first. Second, the obsession appears to be gone, which is really the same as the first reason. I went one day short of two months last time before I started smoking again - and it was that first one that did it. By this time next week, It'll be record territory. The message: If I can do it, so can you!

woo! for you!!!!

i don't smoke, but i did give up gummie bears recently. kindof. i thought about buying a bag (a 5 lb bag, mind you), but i didn't want to get out of the sam's club line.

i once dated a guy who smoked. he tasted like cigarettes and dentyne. he quit but took up porn (i don't think it was related to quitting cigs, in fact he probably had just hidden the porn trail better in the cig days)

i'm rambling, i know.

Well, Mr. Althouse .........

What's your secret? Care to share? It's surely time that I kicked the habit. Like you, I've tried, but have had no willpower to carry through on the goal.
