So I smoked three cigarettes before 11am yesterday, with the bad day and all. (the hair, well… lets just say, I’m glad it’s a new day. but, as you can see, it still requires being tied up and restrained as much as possible.)

No one, not even me, thought I’d make it through the day without failing, or loosing, “the dare.”

But, I didn’t smoke again!!! Until I was on my way home from the GI DOCTORS office.

When I did have that last smoke, I only had HALF because that would leave me the OTHER HALF for after diner. (VIA APPLEHEADS dare. It was her dare, so I agreed to her rules, and she said HALF-n-HALF CAN count as ONE cigarette.)

So, even with all the odds against me, I MADE IT, with four cigarettes!! I have to admit, if it WASN’T for that DARE, I would have smoked more.

Before I went to bed I was laying there, thinking, “No one will know? Who cares anyway? Really? What’s the big deal, just have a few drags.” Then I told myself to “shut.the.fuck.up.” (now I have multiple people living in my head, this is nice…it’s like having my very own bad company, that over stays their welcome)

But, the point is… I didn’t! break the rules, or cave, or cheat. I smoked 4 cigarettes.

Now, today kicked!ass!

I was ON time! I finished a ton of stuff! I had good lunch, that didn’t send me into an allergic reaction, or irritate the Crohn’s! freeking MIRICALE!

AND, the best part of today was that I laughed soooo hard . At myself mostly, but I really laughed.

One of my best friends and I made up this imaginary commercial that cracked my shit up as I wrote it. I would love to post it, but, its waaaay too offensive and all about insurance, no one will get it and others would have me assassinated for it…(will email to personal family / friends)

Time went by so fast it, due to laughing and being crazy busy, that I only had ONE CIGARETTE all damn day.

It was at 230pm.

It is now 907pm. (after this post, I will smoke a second one, but I think that’s IT for today)

In other “news,” I am proud to announce that I have a date!

Yeay! I have a date!

Can you beeeeleeeeeeve it!



with TV.

(yes, that’s right I have hit rock bottom and I am okay with that. It works for me, and I don’t have to shave my legs!)

Anytime there is even the possibility of an Alec Baldwin apperance (YUM!) I cannot be interrupted!! So while drooling over my TV screen, I will not smoke as I am in love with Mr. Baldwin and all his TUDE! (and bloated-sweaty-ness) and the show is pretty good too!

Back on a high note again…whew!

    This is my comment! The comment is for you! I’m ‘delurking’…???

    Good for you on the ciggies! Getting down to 4 from 40 is like insane! You so rule!

    You never had smoke privs at cascade, did you? We’d have to make two packs last all week so we’d smoke quarter ciggies. It was horrific and the stinky packs with the 1/4 to 3/4 ciggies in it were horrific. I so do NOT miss those days… *shudder*

    Keep up the good work!
