Candy Cigarettes

March 11, 1999


I’ve been deathly ill with the flu for a week now. Hopefully I will still have a job Monday. The fever, I think, has subsided but to avoid relapse I’m taking tomorrow off (might as well) and will also have the weekend to recuperate. Reluctantly I have cut down considerably with my smoking. Five days and only four cigarettes, we’ll see how this holds up. I really do want to quit but a big part of me enjoys it way too much. I think I’m over the nicotine addiction, it’s just the habit you know, I need something to supplement. My mom is ecstatic about this which is why I would really like to succeed. Cold turkey is not for me, but my method will work.
