I'm posting this to force myself to commit to it lol.
Starting today, I'm going to begin tapering off on my smoking until I quit again. I know myself, and cold turkey will end in a homicide charge and a cheesecake for dinner. Right now, I'm smoking a pack a day. I'll slowly taper off till I get down to 2 or 3 a day, then quit.
Last time I quit was in 2002, a month before my mom passed. I made it through her funeral without lighting up again. I actually made it 4 months past the funeral. Then I was an idiot and smoked one of my sister's cigarettes when I went to Texas to visit her...and it all went to crap from there. lol
I know stopping will slow down my metabolism a bit, but this journey isn't something that will be complete any time soon, so now's the time. They stopped selling the cigarettes I normally buy, and the new ones are just way too harsh, so I wake up in the middle of the night with a burning chest and a bad cough. Enough is enough!
I'll take it slowly, so I don't eat everything in sight. But I decided this morning that it starts NOW.
Wish me luck! lol
