OK so yes I have a secret, a smoking addiction, although most people don't know it and I don't often do it around certain people, or in my car, or anywhere that I might be seen. I'm taking the miracle stop smoking cure Chantix. This marvelous blue pill has killed my desire for cigarettes by blocking the receptors in my brain that craves a smoke but the side effects are tough. Last night I did not sleep at all and my gut feels gross not to mention the hot flashes HELP! This night I plan not to sleep because it’s Solstice. 21 years ago today I got clean and sober on the 21st of June, I choose the longest day of the year and it seemed appropriate since it is "one day at a time." So I picked the longest day to do it (yes I have misogynistic or masochistic tendencies) whatever. The Chantix has caused my dreams to be weird, like flying above the city and swimming in the ocean with the fishes and an endless parade of people.
But it's time. I want to live as long as I live and to be healthy as long as I can so I've joined a health club Body Renewal, quitting smoking, eating better, keeping positive.
It’s one of those times when I have got much to do and no focus what-so-ever, I have adult ADD, there a pill for that! Kidding, I try to keep things simple and really don’t like to use prescribed drugs and definitely not the other kind but sometimes we all need just a little help.
BTW my 18 year son took a little road trip to Denali National Park it’s only 250 miles up the road he called me and is having a wonderful time hiking, flight seeing, he saw a bear and three cubs, took the bus ride to Denali or Mt McKinley the tallest mountain in North America.
