One month smoke free
I forgot about this movie. It was set in Iowa around 1971. I remember seeing this as a kid and thought it pretty strange watching adults go to any lengths to sneak a smoke. I can imagine a theater full of people watching this and 1/2 of them leaving mid-movie for a nicotine fix.
If you're a smoker, you know when you most likely need a cigarette. For me, I often smoked after I accomplished something. Over the last weekend, as I finished up several little projects I couldn't help but remember how often I used to light up to celebrate little victories. But after a month of not smoking, I can honestly say I don't have a craving tied to that anymore. It wasn't that long ago when I would get nervous if I couldn't have a cigarette after a meal, or while I was driving around, or anytime I was outside. I spent more time thinking about how I was going to work that next cigarette in than the actual conversation I happened to be in. But this weekend was a true test of how far I've come. I was out and about most of the weekend with friends. As I shopped, ate meals, drove around and visited other people's homes, I felt very relaxed. It's clear now, I'm beyond the dependancy and now feel the same as when I was a non-smoker.
So good luck to you if you're thinking about quitting smoking or any other addiction. I can truly say it's tough to start a quit but you'll thank yourself later once you're successful.
