When Gary was diagnosed with a brain tumor we quit smoking. That was September of 2001.
I gained over 20 pounds by June 2002. I lost 10 of it.
I don't even know what happened - BUT I STARTED SMOKING AGAIN! And we have cats in the house now!
Am I an idiot or what?! It was about two weeks ago. I can't remember why we bummed a smoke from someone, but Gary and I had a few puffs of cigarette. It tasted TERRIBLE. So why we smoked another one, I can't even imagine.
To make a long story short, within the past week we bought a pack. And I'm already back up to almost a pack a day! I feel like sh*#, I wake up coughing, I don't like the taste, it hurts my throat.
What is wrong with me! I AM an addict! But we did buy the patch, and I plan to start this weekend (the low pressure phones should make it easier than starting to quit tomorrow).
PLEASE send me bonks!
And BTW - I didn't get bronchitis last year. That's the first time that's happened - almost since I can remember.
So I don't need encouragement - I need to be told I'm an idiot! I felt better, I didn't get sick - I'm just stupid.
