No Smoking

Quit smoking date: June 16th (Shubhangi's birthday)
Today's date: July 21st
Time elapsed: Exactly 5 weeks (more than a month!)

Have I made it this time? Have I really quit? My last attempt to quit was not successful. I quit quitting 9 days after my quit date. However, this is my second-most successful attempt to quit smoking cigarettes since the time I started smoking 13 years ago.

Goofy animation "No Smoking" explains smoking as experienced by smokers and quitting smoking as experienced by "quitters". (Thank you Omer for sharing this with me!)

"It's a Phylis Morrison!"

"Give the smoker enough room, and he will hang on to his habit."

Not this time.

Quitting smoking is actually not that difficult. The struggle lies with not starting again.

Ok, enough wisecracking from me, afterall I am lucky enough that I did not start in beginning. Just hoping that you will succeed. :-)
