Number of cigarettes I would have smoked between April 3 and today, had I not stopped smoking: 2,700
Money saved to date: $481.50
Observation: People who never smoked do not think it's a big deal that you quit. People who used to smoke, and quit themselves, have evidently forgotten how blessed hard it is to quit, and do not think it's a big deal that you quit. Active smokers are threatened that you quit and stay away from you. In short, don't expect any kudos. From anybody. Which kind of sucks.
I sometimes dream that I'm smoking. In my dreams I'm driving in the car, and I look down and there's a lit cigarette in my hand, and the ashtray is full of butts. And in my dream, I'm all, "Oh nooooo! When did I start smoking again? Whyyyyyyyyy?"
And that's all I'm gonna say about dreams. Sorry about that brief lapse into dream analysis.
So! One-quarter of a year, smoke-free. Dear jeezus, I hope it gets easier.
