Only One Vice

I’m trying to quit smoking (again/still).

At this point I’ve gone 36 hours without a cigarette, and I’m doing pretty well.

I was reading a play the other day, and one of the characters said a person should have only one vice. That particular character chose drinking. I haven’t decided what my one and only vice will be, but I’m almost certain I don’t want it to be cigarettes.

Maybe it will be alcohol.

Maybe it will be something demure like coffee.

I of course will not give up any one vice entirely (except maybe cigarettes), I’ll just only consume one with any regularity.

I’m tempted for the vice I choose to be food-related, but that seems like a very good way to gain a lot of weight.

We shall see.

I suppose I’ll figure out what I enjoy the most over the next few days.

And keep on not smoking those cigarettes.

Quitting

I’m trying to quit smoking at the moment.

It’s very unpleasant.

Last night broke down and smoked one.

Just one.

First one in two days.

Because I didn’t have any cigarettes, I had to walk my drunken self several blocks to the nearest convenience store and pay for the pack in spare change I found lying around.

All this trouble for one cigarette.
