The first day of the rest of my life

A nice afternoon

I know that it wasn’t that long ago I was on vacation, it’s just not the same thing as having an afternoon off in the middle of the week. I’ve been able to put quite some hours in at work already this week, so when it was agreed that the group for the next group assignment, was to meet up after class today I simply decided that it would be too late for work afterwards. Simply, I got to go home around one today, giving me plenty of me-time.wpid-shot_1415279283172.jpg

I have a small confession to make, I was going to pretend that what happens on Wednesday night this week, stays on Wednesday night this week. It’s just that I’m to darn honest, so I need to tell you all: I met up with Doug last night! There, it’s said! I feel a bit bad, I mean, I managed three whole days (and I’m right back without him) so it was a bit silly, really. I’m still totally committed to ditching Doug for good, I think that everyone that knows me, know how crap I am at ditching unwanted things from my life. Anyhow, to make up for the small slip with Dough last night, I headed out for a wee little run in the beautiful park this afternoon.wpid-shot_1415279307641.jpgIt’s was real nice to get out, while it was still light, in the fresh air. It also made me feel real healthy and all that jazz. The short bout of exercise also helped me make up my mind about this weekends activities. Tomorrow night the happy Danes release their Christmas beer, a very big event indeed. There will be a great party on, on the other side of the bridge, this year I wont attend though – I know myself well enough to know what will happen if I go, so I wont. Lets be focused on school, work and stop smoking 🙂

One little slip is no slip, two slips are two slips…lets try to keep it at none!

Always look at the bright side of life

Training it!

No work today, whoop, whoop! That mean taking the train to Lund rather than the bus, a nice treat, or so I thought! Of course I arrived last minute to the station and tried to be a bit quick with walking down the escalator. Thing is, this is a flat escalator, my shoes were wet, getting the picture? I slipped! My leg is now hurting like hell and I’m guessing there are some scrapes there as well, nicely stinging.

If you haven’t figured it out before, early mornings are not my thing. Today is for a good cause though, I’m heading early to school in order to attend the session on the last exam, so I can find half a point more and pass the damn thing. If I can’t do that I have to re-sit the thing on the 20th of November. Wish me luck!

The first day of the rest of my life

It’s Wednesday today, isn’t it?

Me and New Zealand are enjoying coffee together in bed this morning. As I used to smoke in my kitchen, I’m working on the recommended change of scene to help me not smoke. I find that in bed is an excellent choice to drink coffee.

I haven’t smoked for an eternity now, we’ll 56 hours (not that I’m counting) or something like that. According to the Internet so have loads of things changed in my body. 20 minutes after my last cigarette, my blood pressure was back to normal (don’t get how my blood pressure knew it was my last). After 8 hours my oxygen levels was back to normal; can’t say biking to work was easier yesterday than usual, might have to do with biking to work bit though. And the magical 48, my taste and smell should now be back, making food and drink taste good again. I can’t say that food and drinks didn’t taste good, I guess they really mean that it will taste more. My problem might be that I might realize how yuck the cheap storbrand coffee I buy, really tastes!

image

And yes, all the nicotine should now have left my body (guess that’s only true for us that quit cold turkey), I wonder if that mean that I will have a few moments today when I don’t think about smoking. That would be nice.

Peace out my peeps, time for another full day at work. Hope you all have a fabulous Wednesday!

The first day of the rest of my life

A whole day without Doug

Tuesday morning, me and Poland are enjoying a coffee. Without Doug!

image

I’m probably making life a little bit hard for myself, sticking with the morning coffee without the morning cigarette. I just don’t understand why the rest of my life should suffer just because I’m quitting the one thing. So I’ll torture myself for a bit, sticking with the coffee. I’m planning on taking a wee break from alcohol though, as that’s a killer for any attempt of quitting smoking.
Well, now it’s time to get ready, head to work for a full day without school, yey! (except for the studying I’ve done this morning and should do this evening)

The first day of the rest of my life

Dear busstop, you make me miss Doug!

Meet Doug;

image

We saw each other last night, he’s gone now and I agreed not to see him again, he didn’t. Think he’s a bit clingy actually!
Well, I missed my bus this morning, by like 10 seconds and now I have to wait 7 minutes for the next one. Doug was really good company when waiting for the bus so now I really miss him.

image

I know it will be easier with time, I’ll find new friends to hang out with rather than Doug. Anyone know any good busstop friend, other than you guys that is!

The first day of the rest of my life

Lets hope for a better week

My last post was on the first of October when I was on my way to a fantastic trip to the big US of A. It was an amazing trip where I for some reason found no time to update the blog. Arriving home to a cold Sweden was no fun, especially not when I was welcomed home to a flat tire on the bike, an exam, crap weather, post-vacation blues and just a general feel of unhappiness.

I’ve been home for almost three weeks now, and it’s been the kind of weeks where it felt like the universe was against me. So yes, I’ve been attending a piety-party that it’s now time to leave for this time around. So tomorrow, there will be another first day of the rest of my life.

As the bike, not only the flat tire there were other things that needed to be fixed as well, made a big dent in my wallet I decided that it might be time to make another attempt to drop the little cancer sticks. As I was pondering the thought I received an email inviting me to take at of a test with quitting smoking with the help of daily text messages, so of course I signed up, thus tomorrow the day is the day.Cancer sticks

It’s not the first time I have tried, I have failed more times than I can count, some attempts have been more serious than others, this one is a serious one. Wish me luck.
