I find my lack of faith disturbing

I may have accidentally quit smoking tonight. I wasn't even sure if I should mention it because I have absolutely no faith in myself to stick with it. I didn't even plan this. I was just sick of this cold and after a half hour cough-and-blow session this evening, I decided to try to not smoke for a while. That was about 14 hours ago. You might think that's nothing, but its definitely something. I cant even remember the last time I went anywhere near that long without smoking a cigarette.

This isn't some cold turkey kind of thing. I've got this electronic cigarette (actually I've got a better one now than the one in that link) that I've been puffing on. It's far from a perfect substitute, though, so every few minutes my brain keeps asking me to please light a cigarette and inhale some toxic smoke. You would totally feel soooooo much better if you had some awesome tobacco smoke in your lungs. My brain is so right. But so far I've been able to fend off those urges with the e-cig. It's kind of bothering my stomach, though.

So anyway, that's what I've been doing tonight... not smoking. I'll let you know when I fail ;)

You go girl! Hey, if Sarah Connor can give 'em up... ;-)

Quitting does tend to loosen up all the shite in your chest though, so be prepared to hack, cough and splutter for a while longer yet.

Yeah, I've got too much excitement in my life. No need for cigarettes ;)

Go, you! \o/

Still going. This is... weird and very unexpected.

Congratulations! We're all rooting for you.

I think I'm starting to root for myself now too.

Go, Roxy, Go!! :)

I'd say "you can do it" but that phrase only brings about mental images of that gawdawlful infomercial exercise dude with the waist length mullet. **shudders** ;)

LOL. And now I am totally picturing that infomercial guy.

No, no failing! You have told us you're not smoking, so now you are beholden to us. OH SNAP.

Hee. So far so good.

    I totally know that feeling. This place is a placid puddle compared to that tempest.

    Hi Jayne!

    Yeah, I'd wait for Netlfix or something. I'll see it again on the small screen just to see if I still feel the same about it.

    More TSCC bits I'm thinking of:

    Hi Roxy!

    Thanks for the review - great stuff, as usual.

    I haven't been able to bring myself to see TG yet, and probably will wait until it's On Demand (because OD has that necessary FF feature),…

    Hi TN :)

    It's not like I keep up much either. I hadn't even posted in here in year (wow, time flies!). I do miss hanging out on LJ, but once most of the community I knew had dispersed, it just…
