“Observe due measure, for right timing is in all things the most important factor.” -Hesiod
Well shit! I have to come clean on my smoking because I told you I quit back in June and at the time it was true. Right after I told you of my success in quitting I found a damn pack of cigarettes under my car seat with ONE lone cigarette inside! I hate waste so I couldn’t very well throw it away so I smoked the little temptress! That led to buying more cigarettes and the rest is history.
I never find “lost” cigarettes unless I have recently quit smoking. This happened once before when I quit. I was getting into my car one day after having quit and as I sat down I noticed a pack of cigarettes in the parking lot right beside my car. Of course I had to get out to make sure it was just trash but when I picked it up I realized it was a brand new pack FULL of cigarettes. Why does the Universe tempt me like this?! If it’s a test, then I fail each time.
The only reason I’m confessing is because I quit again. Tonight will be four days being smoke free, however, I am using my good ‘ol electric cigarette. (more…)
