HELL FREEZES OVER! →
[More:] I have 2 unopened packs of cigarettes and 2 left in another pack. These will be my last packs of cigarettes! Yes, you heard correctly. I am quitting smoking. My first reason is that I don't really enjoy it anymore, it's just staving off addiction. Two, our rent is increasing and at today's prices in NYC ($9 for a pack of Camels or $11 for an off-brand two-pack) my smoke budget would just about cover the increase.
I've been smoking since I was 14. I managed to quit once before, for eight months. I blew it when I was in a bar and the woman next to me was smoking and, thinking I could have just one, I bummed one. A week later I was back at a pack a day and then some. So, I won't make that mistake again. Wish me luck and if you hear about a mass shooting in Queens, that'll probably be me.
In other news, my hat arrived.
