Today is the three week mark in the Cold Turkey Caper! Here are the impressive stats:
- 21 days, 8 hours, 35 minutes and 34 seconds smoke free
- 427 cigarettes not smoked
- and 3 days, 6 hours of my life saved.
I had a patch snafu yesterday. It was the last Step 3 patch in the box and I need to buy more patches today. It refused to stick to me. The adhesive side had completely given up the will to adhere! Ricki gave me the idea to tape it to myself, which only worked for a short while.
So I spent yesterday patchless. I was feeling somewhat cocky and confident and thought that it wouldn’t be such a big deal – I mean it’s been three weeks already, how much difference can one patch make?
ask the Boar.
he knows the difference one patch can make.
poor little Boar. He had no idea that I was patchless and did not see all the traffic cones and blinking yellow lights that the universe should have erected all around me.
I want to thank everyone for all their support – as crazy as I know this sounds, writing about quitting and all the wonderful comments is making a critical difference in my success. Thanks and congratulations to Vicki, Connie, Boar and Claire – all you fellow Quitters! we may be miserable at the moment, but just look at all the $$ we’re saving!
and darling Boar – thanks for putting up with my shit.
