I will write something notable in a few days when my head is not pounding quite so much. On the bright side, I smelled a cigarette earlier it didn't tempt me even a little bit.
UPDATE (03/01/2012): It has been four and a half weeks since I stopped smoking.
I've been thinking... It is ridiculous to tell addicts that even after they quit they will be a former smoker (or former whatever). I don't agree. I am working to be a non-smoker. If I lived my life believing that I was always on the edge of smoking and always in danger of falling off the wagon, I would just jump off. Fuck that. If I am going to live healthy and feel good, I am not going to dwell on an addiction that I had. I am fighting to beat it, not keep it at bay. I think that people who tell you that you are always an addict are trying to keep you in a caste. I don't buy that.
It has been hard to focus on writing these days. Maybe it has to do with the smoking. Maybe not. I am pushing myself back into it.
UPDATE (01/29/2013): It's been a year. I feel good.
UPDATE (01/29/2014): It's now been two years. Awesome.
UPDATE (01/30/2015): 3 years now. All is normal. I don't smoke and I feel good.
