and ive met people who still smoked that had Electrolarynx, and I was still smoking to at that time and my ex was like doesn't that scare you? I was 24 at the time and smoking a half a pack a day. Yeah it scared me but ive tried to quit lots of times, but I always broke down and smoked again. I wasn't ready yet. and now im smoke free and im glad my mom quit too. I bought Nicorette gum for the addiction part, I stopped hanging out with smokers, in fact I argued with a friend because he wanted to smoke in my apartment, I told him no because I got my apartment repainted to get rid of the smoke smell, and I mostly watched tv or do art. he was like why still? lol my apartment my way. he even tries to make me feel guilty because I quit smoking and drinking. I used to drink so I could sleep. But I found Seroquel and drinking and taking my meds was counteractive so I stopped self medicating. I miss him but I cant have him trying to ****** my quits. I have chronic sinusitis, I have to take Benadryl and hydrazine. I had to quit smoking pot because it just made me stupid and hungry.. and it didn't really make my ms nerve pain go away. I quit doing meth, because that was just really stupid. It been a strange long road, but im glad I was strong enough to quit all those things without going to a drug rehabilitation. I just stopped hanging out with the people who did all that. and that's what I told my little sister. I told her we are skivers and we are strong enough do anything. its in our blood.
