Laser-Shooting Eyeballs: Tops On My List of Wants Absolute Needs

I’m nearing the end of the fourth day into my conscious decision to quit smoking (yes, I’ve gone without a smoke for more than four days in the past, but it was not a concentrated effort*).

I’m not yet at the point where I want to hack all of you up into bits and then swear at the little pieces, but I think that place is not at all very far off. I dunno, I just have this really, really huge feeling that the day in question will somehow magically coincide with the day I plan on delving into the computer repairs.

So if I’m not blogging again by the middle of next week, send funds for a new machine. My lack of patience, skills and nicotine may culminate in a scenario that will likely mirror the actions of a drunkard toting around a nitro cocktail.

*Save for the whole ‘three pregnancies’ thing. We don’t count those, because I was not doing that for my own personal good. Plus, I kept starting back up after the babies were weaned.

    You were still smoking? It’s the 21st Century!

    In these parts, dipping snuff is a good alternative to smoking. That’s what my Big Mama did. Or maybe you’re a corncob pipe gal, I can get you one cheap and teach you how to smoke it. And don’t tell me you already know how to smoke a pipe. That whole big bowl and no screen thing is tricky, plus inhaling is a no-no, so your crack pipe/pocket bong experience does not count.

    As far as your puter, for a mere two or three hundred bucks you could rent a limo to Bham and dine in one of our fanciest establishments while I adroitly exorcise the evil PC demons for you. All I ask is that once it’s working, I get to slap a Powered By Skillzy sticker on your box. Er, computer. And that you get that tattooed on your butt. So, another fifty bucks.

    I’d like to help. Hack away. Just keep all my pieces together when you’re done. Thanks.

    Good luck. I read that you’re only chemically addicted for 14 days – after that its only a mental addiction. I did manage to quit smoking for a few years (unfortunalty it didnt last) while I was living w/ an ex. I did it by giving into every single other craving I had. I didnt realize what a problem I had though until I found myself driving to 7-11 for a chocolate donut at 2am. But it worked for years until I became stupid again.

    For some reason your post reminds me of the waitress Flo in the diner sitcom Alice. I think you should chew gum instead. But you have to chew it like Flo did.

    Never having been a smoker, I can only imagine what you must be going through.

    Common practice suggests that replacing your old habit with a new one will help ease your addiction.

    Might I recommend coffee?

    Not just any coffee mind you…replace that nasty old habit with the coffee that’s destined to be branded as Starbucks new “Poo-Latte”….

    Complete with a slogan of “this coffee tastes like” CRAP!!!
