Gotcha!


The sunray was already filtering through my window when I decided to get up. I sank in bed late last night and I just had another nightmare. But it's not the one that leaves you gasping for breath nor the one that puts you gaping with your restricted howl.

Must be a good day for me as I examined myself in the mirror. The bulged wound on my lip has shrunken and I felt heaven. It was terrible the past days, avoiding to eat this 'n that and being restrained by AJ from smoking ,albeit I thought it was a blessing in disguise to remind me of how long I have been a smoker and it's about time I cut the addiction. I have been so dependent on cigarettes and I am just so desperate to make attempts at quitting. I have tried tapering off to no avail. I went cold turkey but it was just a cycle. Now I still suck up on these cancer sticks.

After making myself freshly clean and neat, I dashed for my station, turned on my PC and disappeared moments later for a meal upstairs.

I saw myself seated at a table next to the counter at the cafeteria. As usual the place was in a flurry and I had to wait to be served. Trying to hold my hunger, I threw a glance at the display of foods and after giving myself some assurance that I'd be served, I grabbed the tabloid(BULGAR) halfway inserted in the drawer to my right. Reading the newspaper has been a habit to satisfy my piqued curiosity of the showbiz news. In short, I love gossips and people there in the lunchroom often call me "tsismosa" (gossip monger) hehehe.

While engrossed in today's showbiz headlines, I spotted a guy who just managed to take a seat at a table near the entrance. He must be a new customer, I thought...To be continued...

I know somebody who tried quitting, and he lasted only for a year ... now he's back at those "cancer sticks" (lol) again. We're hoping he'll stop soon, but really, it's his decision. :)

thanks for the visit earlier!

I guess there must be a strong enough reason for quitting smoking. You've named it. It is cancer causing.

Humans, unlike animals need a purpose to go on living too. Not just merely existing. So the question is, Does your life have a purpose strong enough for you to quit life threatening habits?

i used to smoke a lot too, but quit about two years ago. i still ocassionally puff on a stick or two per week.

i knew four people who quit abruptly and ended up sick having withdrawal difficulties.
