Day 365

Nope, this is not the number of days I’ve been in my new job.

This is, in fact, the number of days since I last had a cigarette. Well, it’s 365 days minus 6.5 hours, as I gave up at 11.59pm on 31/12/2007. And I haven’t had one single cigarette since. I even remember cutting the remaining cigarettes up that night.

I have had one cigar in the last year (but you don’t inhale those and it is absolutely not the same as cigarette smoking). I actually swiped one of my dad’s cigars from home and have it with me. I think I’ll take it to Sheridan’s tonight. I like the smell of cigars and like I said, one doesn’t inhale, it’s a special occasion thing.

Anyway, 365 days cigarette free! And yes, you most certainly can feel the difference when you do it.

I’m now off out and staying over so won’t be back until tomorrow sometime, have a lunch and a dinner, though tonight itself is quiet – cooking ahead of tomorrow, watching a movie (not that awful TV), and having a bit to drink.

Happy New Year – this is my last blog post of 2008!

PS And somewhat coincidentally, my google page rank went from zero (which it’s been for months) to 3. Odd how that happened today.

  1. Congrats on the cigs! I’m seriously considering it this evening. Hardly smoked the last few days due to sore throat/cough so fingers crossed.
