can i kick it?
i feel like i can officially type it out loud, since it has been over a week:
DUDES, I QUIT SMOKING!
i'm super proud of myself as i'm adjusting quite well. when i say that i mean i'm still a bit moody and prone to tears, but most of the time, i'm just pretty happy. i've yet to reap any of the health benefits, since i've got a nasty cold, but i know those will come eventually.
if you know anyone who may be thinking of quitting, i highly recommend chantix (this is the first and last time i will give free advertising to a giant pharmaceutical company). it has really helped make quitting easier for me this time.
i've been in kind of a brain fog this week and have had zero attention span, so i haven't been knitting much. this is unfortunate because i've been staying in a lot. i never miss smoking while in my house, because i didn't smoke there. everywhere else is like temptation island, and as a result my relationship with my porch and my car is contemptuous at the moment.
i did have some brief crafty moments:
i tried to learn how to crochet with the happy hooker (i think i am finally getting the hang of it today)
yes, that was acrylic, making it's first ever appearance on this blog.
as part of an excessive reward system for being a quitter, i ordered yarn to remake this and this, in the hopes that i'll be able to have patterns written up for both by the end of summer/beginning of fall.
are there drugs you can take to help quit procrastinating?
have a lovely day folks!
p.s. the title of this post comes courtesy of a tribe called quest. the song "can i kick it?" came on in my car the morning i decided to quit and accidentally became my silly theme song to quitting.
