Today marked the first day of my attempt to quit smoking. I had been dreading this day for quite a while. Frankly, the process of quitting sucks and I was not looking forward to the cravings and the inability to satisfy those cravings. Though I know that this is something I absolutely must do, my life depends on it.
In actuality, my first day was easier than I had expected. I allowed myself 7 cigarettes today at 9:45 AM, 11:15 AM, 2:00 PM, 5:00 PM, 7:30 PM, 10:00 PM, and my last one will be at 12:00 tonight. Typically, on a day when I am not working (like today) I smoke every hour on the hour. I’m actually proud of myself for sticking to my guns!
