Yay, I made two weeks smoke free. Of course it crossed my mind that to celebrate, I could have one, but that would be like celebrating your sobriety with a drink. Plus I don't want one. Really. But I've been down this road too many times to declare victory. It's always the cockiness that sets in at four-five months that sabotages me. Must keep my guard up at all times. And anyway I'm still addicted to nicotine. I'm down to one cartridge a day which I guess is the equivalent amount of nicotine in four cigarettes (if I can believe what I'm reading) and they recommend that when you are down to 1 or 2 cartridges per day, that you should stop. There's no rush though, they recommend that you use it for several months.
I went for one of my long walks yesterday. I saw a guy with a pet squirrel. It had a little collar/harness thing with a chain leash attached. The squirrel just hung out on his shoulders. I didn't want him to see me taking a picture because he was hustling money and I didn't have any. I had just spent all I had on a sandwich and was heading to old Montreal to eat it. So I took the picture when he wasn't noticing.
Oh and I scored tickets to the show Kathy Griffin is hosting Thursday night. They must not be going to sell out because I got them two for one. I look forward to some hearty laughing.
Oh and this stole several hours of my life. Again.
