Went out Sat night to see Disco D, and though I was nostalgic about smoking, I wasn't seriously tempted. One thing not to do -- spend 4.5 hours in a smokey bar with a nicotine patch on. Woke up with a monster headache on Saturday despite no smokey treats and only 2 beers. I'd conservatively estimate that 4 hours of second hand smoke is equal to at least 1/2 pack of cigs.|
Since I got home, I haven't had a patch on, and still doing OK. I get a twinge when I do something where I always used to have a smoke, but it doesn't involve panic or obsessive thoughts, so I can deal.
On a completely unrelated note, I saw two women when I was @ the show I hadn't seen in a while, and they both had lost a buttload of weight. One of them looked pretty healthy, but the other had gone from well proportioned down to 10 year old girl style. She looked healthy enough, but it was a shock -- like her boobs had disappeared, her arms were like pipe cleaners, etc.
All y'all girls out there worried about your weight: eat right, get some exercise and stop worrying about it. Plenty of men out there with no desire to count a girls ribs through her t shirt.
