Here Come The Patches

I've been relaxing lately, as you can tell by the date stamp difference between this post and the last one.  I had failed to quit smoking, and it wasn't just this last time either.  I've failed to quit smoking MANY times.  I'm a pro at this people, been there, done that.

The last attempt failed because I wasn't ready to accept the psychological change in mood that I experienced.  I was easily aggravated and became very moody.  I'd flip on you in an instant, and you'd never see it coming either.  Not good.  Not good at all.

After some time to reflect on my last attempt, I've come to the decision that I will require some chemical support.  I'm going to pick up some patches soon and give it another go.  I think a slow draining of the nicotine in my system will be  more conducive to my mental state and help me to achieve my goal.

When you fall off the horse, you just have to get back up on there.  I find it easier to get back up on there after the bruises to your ego have had a chance to heal though.
