Quitting with Facebook…

14 Oct

Today marks, officially, my two weeks without any form of nicotine. Along the way, I facebooked my progress like CRAZY. I’m sure my posts got annoying at times, but eff it. It got me through. Everyone’s quitting experience is different, but here’s a visual journey with me as I quit smoking and how it effected me. And now, I shall detail my journey as only my facebook updates can tell.

Justin Thyme has embarked on the road whose course does not turn back. “Ana Harrani Sa Alaktasa La Tarat” – Ancient Sumerian Phrase. 24 FULL hours of no nicotine of any kind. Screw gums and patches and ihalers, I’m done messing around. If I could take a 6 gauge needle through my ear lobes I can do this shiznit cold turkey.

Justin Thyme wonders how he can feel so amazing and intoxicated by life and STILL feel so insanely miserable. I’m staying strong though!!!

Justin Thyme hopes all these werthers originals and blow pops I’m orally fixating on don’t make me fat.

Justin is in a relationship with the Dragon. (tee hee)

Justin Thyme made it through walking through clouds of smoke from the white trash gas station attendants, going into the local head shop to look for ear rings with all the employees smoking, and seeing a fresh, open pack of cigarettes on the bar at my apartment. *stuffs blow pop in his mouth*

Justin Thyme So I switched my addiction from cigarettes to hard candy, and when the Dragon and I went museuming I forgot to fill my pockets with blow pops and werthers. I checked in all the gift shops at all the museums we went to and couldn’t find any kind of candy much less MY brand, then we turned a corner in the Modern and there it was – a RIVER of hard candy. That I wasn’t allowed to eat. They may as well have just filled a room with Camel No. 9’s.

    Well done Mr Thyme! May I be so bold as to suggest that the dollars you are saving, you put aside for a Justin treat. You know Justin likes treats!
    (seriously, the first time I gave up I funded two of us flying to San Francisco)
