Pandella and I quit smoking 10 weeks ago. While she is doing better than me, I really only seem to want a cigarette out of habit more than desire. I catch myself reaching for my pocket when getting into the car (to remove them and put them in the center console), but they are not there. Shortly after quitting, I had a really really nasty tooth extraction, basically slept for 2 days completely doped up on pain killers. Never in my life have I had such a bad dental experience. Generally I go to work afterward and just sound funny for a few hours. However, after that, I’ve really had no desire to smoke. So perhaps this time we’ll stay quit.
