Never Thought Id Be Saying This But

Ive been a smoker for ages... I started every day at 13 and I used to smoke when I could before that as well... yeah very stupid but I am stupid. I still kind of enjoy it even tho I hate admitting that and Im too scared atm to stop altogether BUT

Im on day 3 of a serious effort to cut down... Ive gone from smoking far too much to 15 cigs and Im gonna get down to 10 before the end of the year. Yeah its not quite quitting but its close... and I smoke menthols or lights anyway so theyre not as evil as normal ones.

The first 2 days were really hellish... I felt like screaming and shouting at everyone but Im coping much better now. I guess my bodys getting used to not having as much nicotine in and Im getting better at spacing out my cigs too... well that and Im on my own today so I can scream if I feel like it :-P

It still aint easy... Im still moody snappish and ready to go off on one and thats probaly gonna stay for a while yet but the fact Im going the right way is making me feel GOOD :-D

Im focusing on how much money Im saving... and its lots... and how much tar and c rap isnt going into my poor lungs.

Next year... maybe... I'll stop altogether? But we'll have to see bout that :-)
