Again, I have come to regale you with tales of my life……
Nahh… you don’t want to hear about that…. Do you?
I’m going to try to keep the length down, and the volume up, so check this space for upcoming attaractions!
It has been 7 days since I have quit smoking. As opposed to last time that I quit, back in Oct 2000, which I kept up for 9 months and was a wreck of nerves by then end of, I am using some brand of nicotene gum to ease the withdrawal symptoms.
The gum is NASTY, but helps. I get the jitters now and then, and have an intense feeling that I want to rip someone’s head off, but I can only hope, that this too, shall pass.
The annoying thing about the gum is that when stressed, I tend to chew it more often (you’re supposed to chew it a few times to release the nicotene, and keep it in your cheek until the taste is absorbed, and chew some more for 30 minutes) and keep biting the damned inside of my mouth, out of eagerness.
Some say you can get hooked on the gum, and I will see. At least I am no longer huffing and puffing after a 5 minute walk.
Hopefully, I will be replacing some of my time with a spinning class, and get back into a more elongated shape, rather than the roundish-about-the-middle fashion which seems to be popular amongst beer drinkers (guilty!).
I’m deliberating whether or not I can afford to enroll into Open University this year, or whether I should put it off for now, and dedicate this year to health, and hapiness (?), and possibly, a motorcycle. It’s mainly a financial decision, as I still am trying to get back on to my own two, or even one feet/foot, and attain financial stability before investing time and money into further, possibly less lucrative ordeals.
Any ideas/advice/spare cash is most welcomed.
All for now….
