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.
