will I ever get over you ...

... I am having such a hard time letting go of you. I know we ended it some time ago and it was for the best, but I can't stop thinking about you. I smell your scent everywhere. Especially when I've been drinking, I get so weak. And I see you out with other people, you've moved on and I continue to long for you. I can't help it. You are addictive and I miss you terribly.

I told my doctor that if I make it age 80, I'm going to start smoking again. She laughed and laughed. Hey! I mean it!

Ben said...

Lol. Now that's funny. How long did you smoke for? I smoked my entire freshman year of college... and it's been quite a you know what to quit.

Kat,
Girl, he's no good for you! He'll break your heart and just leave you breathless (and not in a good way). The fact that he'd make you go out at 11:30 PM to the quickie mart for him just before a hurricane is proof positive he doesn't have your interests in mind. Stay strong (especially if you're drinking), you're doing the right thing.

Stay strong Kat. I started when I was 15, quit when I was 25; at times smoked two packs a day (this was back when a carton cost less than a pack does now). Five years after I quit I decided to drop my caffeine addiction as the next step in my effort to live a healthier life. After a few days I started getting cravings for a smoke.

20 years later, I write this with a cup of coffee at hand, but smoke free.

But I like Linda's idea - if I make it to 80 I'll start again, if I can afford it. Probably need to take out a second mortgage to buy a carton by then.

Smoking causes weight gain, yellows the teeth, wrinkles the face, fouls the breath, makes harsh the voice, gives the skin a dirty and leathery texture and portrays a not so glamorous image thereby minimizing sexual appeal and chances for any meaningful relationship.

Rick, this is all true, but for a guy who wants to stay a bachelor, it's good. Besides - I like the stuff! . . . Kat, hang in there, you really are better off without.

I'm with Linda. Except that my threshold is lower...I'll always smoke my pipe, but I'm going to say that if cigarettes are still legal when I turn 55 - and if you don't have to take out a mortgage to buy a pack - then I'll start smoking regularly again. I'm not looking to live too long... :)

You captured my sentiments of the past three months so well!! I quit because I found out I was pregnant, but it has been so hard. I still like to stand by people who smoke, sometimes I go to the local cigar shop and walk around getting a major buzz. Whats worse is that people really don't understand what a relationship you had with your cigarettes. Stay strong, and I promise I will too, or at least till this kid is in college and can't see me get hammered on white wine and a pack of Camels!
God Bless you!

My next husband will not be a smoker. I hate it. Its disgusting. What was I thinking? I was so naive to think it wouldn't bother me.

My dh is a sweetie - but ...

[for all of you literal-minded fools out there, I'm being funny ...'next husband' ]

Stay strong Kat, you don't need that kind of abuse :-)

Der Wolf....sometime cigarettes do not kill right away, and cancer, heart disease, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) are no treat. Stay healthy!
