A whole latte love...

I gave up smoking 2 days ago.  So far, I have not French kissed any smokers that I’ve passed on the street, even though it’s been a bit of a temptation for whatever little bit of smoke might still be in their lungs.

I feel slightly crazy.  Very on-edge.  Mostly encouraged.  And I feel like I smell better than average.  So, that’s good.

I have taken up lattes instead.

I bought myself the set-up to make them at home (a very small investment, it turned out, as I realized I could make the espresso shots in my Tassimo machine that I already had, and only needed the milk steamer/frother, which I bought with my Bed, Bath and Beyond 20% off coupon for $60).  I have gone through about a gallon of milk in two days.  This is quite impressive.  The problem is, I have to remember to eat.  I have to make rules for myself like a little kid:  “No, Noey, you can’t have any more lattes until you eat something real for dinner.”  But, this is also helpful in my plan for not gaining 20 lbs, like I did the last time I tried to quit smoking.

So far, so good.  I’ll keep you posted.

  1. You can do it, you can do it, you can do it! Do carrot sticks or apple slices sound appealing at all? You could have a stash on hand for the hand-to-mouth habit urges...
