Quit Smoking – Day one

Today I Have Quit Smoking

 

The day arrived that I had decided to quit smoking.  It is a Saturday.  I had decided to start on a day that allowed me to break up the usual pattern of getting up, having a cigarette, breakfast, cigarette, showering, cigarette, driving to work with a cigarette, a quick cigarette before going into work.  You get the idea.

 

A Saturday does not have the same pattern, apart from getting up and having a cigarette before doing anything else.  In fact, today has been different in a number of ways.  Apart from being the day to quit smoking I went for a balloon ride!  That meant being up at 4.00 before driving for an hour and a quarter.  Then there was the meeting all the others also going up in the balloon.  Then the ascent and flight.  All in all, a very different day that did not allow me to dwell on the quit smoking aspect of the day.  Later I realised that I would have been the only smoker in the group of 16 flying today.  Jane does not count, she has always been an “amateur” smoker, only one or two a day.  She has never been a professional like me, 40 a day, smoking in all weathers.

 

I did have my electronic with me and I used it a couple of times.  However no major cravings that I can remember.  When we had returned to Clitheroe I went to buy the weekend food.  Normally, the first thing that I would do is to check the queue for the tobacco desk as I went in.  Today I looked, but not in a checking it out sort of way.

 

I am not saying that it has all been plain sailing.  There have been moments.  One of the worst was when I discovered that my electronic needed to recharge.  It is charging as i write this, plugged in to the laptop.  The trouble is that the charging thingy keeps showing green, but the damn thing still does not work!  The shop where I bought it is shut, and will be for the next 3 days with it being a Bank Holiday, so the next few days could be awkward.

 

And I thought that it would be a doddle to quit smoking.
