Apparently, it does work!
Yeah yeah, I know it's been a long time, but I've been busy!
Apparently, Chantix does work. Today is my fourteenth day without a cigarette! You're damned right that's impressive! yeah I know, there are some people that have gone their entire lives without a cigarette. Good for them!
I think it works only because it's worked for me. I think the biggest improvement over other times that I've tried to quit is my attitude. In previous attempts to quit I turned into a real ass. No really! Even more of an ass than I usually am! But this time it's been different. I still get the occasionally craving for a smoke, but it hasn't been accompanied by the misery that seemed to go along with the cravings in the past.
I really put it to the test Friday night. I usually go out and have a few beers on Fridays. I didn't the first Friday that I'd quit, but I did last Friday night and honestly never felt like I needed or wanted a cigarette all night. That's why I say I think it works. If you can get through a night like that here in VA where it's still legal to smoke cigarettes in bars, then you really should be good.
There's been a lot on the news lately about pirates and I was actually thinking the other day....maybe I should become a pirate...then navy SEALs took out three of them at once and I figured...probably not a good career move! So, I'll stick to this new thing for a while. I'll be adding to that one today too. Click the profile link and you'll see the other blog there.
It's a crumby, rainy day here in VA. One of those kinds of days that you just want to sit on the back porch and have cigare...oh wait...I don't do that anymore!
Thank goodness Chantix only works on cigarettes!!!
