Sitting here at Jake’s after another brutal day at work. This smoking cessation thing is killing me. I’ve backslid a bit today but I’ve still cut down considerably.

Budget time is probably the worst time for me to try and quit but, with Jan away, this was the best week possible.

I haven’t murdered anyone yet but I’ve come close and it will only get worse. I’ve tried to watch the food intake as well because the last time I quit, (10 years – don’t ask) I gained considerable weight and I’d rather avoid that if I could.
