No , smoking is not an option , it is not even a thought and that amazes this addict ! My gosh this self isolating to me is worse than quitting smoking ! I'm glad the price of cigarettes skyrocketed to an unaffordable price . First time I quit smoking was because I refused to pay 5 dollars ... that didn't last .
Human contact is vital to health ... not just texting but talking both on the phone and in person . I know there are others feeling socially alone through this not just me . Think I will call a few of those folks today . Helping someone else will also help me . Kinda like us helping each other here quit smoking . It's like getting out of isolation . Maybe some of you will do that too .
Change of thought ...
I can't imagine how old aged smokers who are still smoking will manage through this . I remember being in the hospital and desperately asking people , strangers even , if they would buy me a pack .. heck I even called a cab to buy them and deliver them , borrowed money to do so . I took their name and address and sent money to them when I got home .. oh my , what an addict ! Think those packs cost me a ton that day with cab fare on top , but I didn't care ... I needed my fix.
I appreciate my quit so much . Life is totally different .
Better than ever !
Change of thought :
Yup this self isolation is definitely worse than quitting smoking for me .
I am a very social person and this is torture .... but this too shall pass . Soon I hope !
But instead of wallowing I'm going to do different , just like quitting smoking ... don't smoke , do something different.
Today I am not sick , I am isolated, but not sick , my family is healthy , I don't know what the next hour will hold . Every day every hour is uncertain it seems but I'm grateful . I'm grateful I have food and shelter , friends and neighbors . I have clothes and shoes and my hair is kinda messy cause it's early and coffee comes first lol . We can't get a hair cut due to closures and isolation but that's ok I always hated the growing out stage for a new hairstyle ..now maybe that will happen . Wow ... that brings back memories ....
Change of thought
I remember cutting my hair when I was a kid , did you guys do that too ?
Times change over the years , don't they .
Toilet paper ? What was that ? lol ... now we are scrambling for every roll we can get .
Dumplings went a long way .. it was stretching the dollar and filled a grumbly tummy .
Wouldnt it be great today for us old foggies if party lines came back , but I guess face time is great too if I can learn how to work it lol .
Change of thought :
I gotta stop lol
Coffee is ready ...
