I haven’t really been missing the last ten days, just busy and a bit under the weather. I missed Dave online while he was gone. He’s trying hard to quit smoking now. I’ve tried, and I’ve even blogged the attempts. The longest I’ve made it is a year. I’ve since realized that, if I’m going to really quit smoking, I’m not going to be able to drink socially anymore. Not even a beer while watcing the game or a glass of wine at a dinner party. Every time I have tried and failed, it has either been related to stress, or the relapse has come as a result of some drunken night of partying with friends. I’m happy he is back and that everything seems to be okay, and I wish him the best of luck in his attempts at cessation. I don’t think anyone who hasn’t been addicted to cigarettes can really appreciate just how hard it is to quit. Even in my own peer group, I find people leering at me when I mention that I have tried to quit and failed. These folks don’t have the perspective to really be leering, it’s so hard that I would venture that most people wouldn’t be able to do it the first time. I’m trying to get some house stuff done right now, and hoping to get some template work done tonight on the CF Blog site.
