Smoking: Diary of a Quitter...
I stood up to stretch my legs
and wandered outside.
It was then that a little voice in my head said, ‘You’re on holiday.
You haven’t smoked for three months and one won’t hurt Go on, you
deserve it.’ I remember feeling a bit bored and restless but certainly
not craving for a cigarette. For the last twelve years I would usually
have filled up that moment of nothingness with a cigarette. Perhaps it
was only natural that my head filled in the blanks and like an idiot (I
can now state in retrospect) I succumbed to the notion and bought a
packet of ten.
The transition from not smoking back to smoking
incredibly easy. The first puff spun my head so much I almost lost
balance. The cigarette tasted ghastly but for some strange reason I
wanted to smoke more, thinking the strangest of thoughts that, in order
to appreciate the pleasure of smoking once again, I would get used to
it. I took another puff and then another. It was only after I had
finished that one cigarette that I considered seriously the
consequences of what I had just done.
