One week ago today as I crushed the last empty pack of smokes and tossed it I didn't look in any mirror or do any soul searching. What I did was say enough is enough and went cold turkey. Chills, heat flashes, body aches and other not nice stuff followed and I wondered...what was I thinking. Seven days later no cravings, getting more sleep, after a fashion and a return to decent appetite. Speaking of which my taste buds feel like they're overdrive, everything tastes so much better. Changed my diet to include more veggies and fruit and I developed a new appreciation for ordinary water. Got a little ways to go yet but I'm off and running and I ain't lookin' back. Yaaaaay me!
