Haha - Right on NYCMusc!
I smoked a pack (25) a day for most of the past 15 years having
'quit' a year there and 6 months there on several occasions.
I realize now that I always took it up again when I began
frequenting the bar scene again and that I didn't enjoy
drinking at all without a smoking cancerstick in hand.
Since joining RJ 5 weeeks ago, with the support and inspiration
provided by many of the truly awesome guys on the site and by
steadfastly becoming evermore committed to uberclean living,
I've cut out tea and coffee, alcohol, sugar (other than for baking),
and, alas, Smoking. Now that all bars and restos are smoke-free
here, I won't have that excuse to not go out or to take up that
scornful habit again.
Just nine days under my belt, so far, and....
ohhh the quantities of plain air-popped popcorn and lemon water
that I consume daily just to satisfy my oral fixation.
Btw, NYCMusc, the reasons you listed for butting out were, by far, the more motivating.
To every vice there is virtue. Vive la Vanite! :D
Wish me luck!
