Whipped this little Ikea project together while having coffee this morning. Yes, I do realize that this is NOT the Billy bookcases waiting downstairs in boxes, but it’s something. It’s damn cute.
So I guess it’s time to think about my other vices, start knocking them down as I move forward.
Omg, that’s a big one. I quit smoking in Feb 2008 after about 22 years. Quit cold turkey after several attempts. Continued to drink until OCT 2008, then quit that. Worked out. Ate lettuce and similar.
Was perfect saint-like person (well…)
So the drinking started again in 2012, the smoking followed a year later. I assumed the two were symbiotic and when one stopped the other would follow. Now I’m starting to wonder if I drank so I could smoke?? At first, I was only smoking when drinking, so it wasn’t very often. Then when my drinking became nearly daily the ciggy intake also dramatically increased. When I decided that I was going to die (please see post of same name) I couldn’t figure out which I should concentrate on first- Chicken?? Egg?? Omelet??
What has actually happened is that I have replaced wine & cigs on the patio, with [insert NA beverage] & cigs on the patio. Crap.
SOOOOOOOO now I have to quit smoking. Again. Shit.
QUITTING PROS (this sounds stupid even I as type, but stay with me)
- Won’t die
- More energy
- Sleep better
- Less stinky
- Save money
- But I waaaaaant it!!! (that’s all I’ve got here)
