AAAAARRRRRRRGGGGGGHHHHHHH!

There are NO cigarettes ANYWHERE in the house, the car or the garage.  I checked.  The two spares on BH's bathroom shelf are gone, as is the half-smoked one in his ashtray.  If I don't take the trash out soon, I will be scavenging for butts in there.  Nicotine gum helps.  A little.

I. AM. LOSING. MY. MIND.

I can't wait to get to work tomorrow, where I'm accustomed to not having the little fuckers around.
Pardon my French.

  1. My daughter speaks French, and I don't think that was French. It was as English as it could be. We need to learn some real curse words in French so we can use them and honestly say, Pardon my French. The only thing I know is merde (shit). Would you like me to ask my daughter if she knows how to say little fuckers?

    I'm very proud of you for giving that merde.

    Pardon my French.

    Love,

  2. I'm so sorry - that should have said giving UP that merde.

  3. Sooo damn hard to quit. But very worth it.

    I had smoked for 18 years or so.

    The physical cravings pass within a couple weeks, the psychological ones last a lot longer. You need to develop a new routine. Example... instead of lighting up right after dinner, go for a walk. Or take a hot shower. Do some yoga. Drink some water and have a piece of fruit. Replace the act of smoking with something that's easy to keep doing without guilt.

  5. When I quit, I had a palm pilot. I played every game of Solitaire in order, and played them all until I won each one. Each time I had a craving, I played solitaire until the craving subsided.

    But I searched through a lot of ashtrays for long butts, and I'm ashamed to say, they weren't always the ashtrays in this house.

  8. It is going to be a bit tough getting over the hump and also not getting humped. Stay strong and one of these cravings will fade while the other won't.

  9. I had no will power but I used acupuncture to quit. I had been a pack a day smoker for over a decade. They put surgical staples in your ears. When you have a craving you push on them and you're so nauseous you don't want to smoke. Haven't had one in 20 years.

  11. BTDT yeah the cravings fade fast once they do.

    Still if I was in your shoes I'd just be buying one of those magic e-ciggies. Nicotine isn't that harmful of a drug, its the tar and smoke that does all the damage.
