Hokay so, I quit smoking and it’s been quite an adventure over these last nine weeks!
I used the patch, lollipops, identifying triggers, and setting myself up for as much success as possible.
I also identified sensitivity (and possibly allergies to) the nicotine in the cigarettes and within the patches themselves. While my migraine frequency is reduced, their intensity was so much worse and I ended up working from home over the majority of the last 3-4 weeks. Ugh.
B3 and I are still going strong… It will be three months this week and we’re not quite sure how we might be celebrating either that or the fact his birthday arrives this week, too.
Which brings me to this: I think it’s safe to say I won’t be out in the dating world anytime soon and my duties as an OK Cupid moderator have fallen off significantly. While I haven’t deleted my profile there and across other dating sites yet, they will be taken down after a check-in and a discussion with my new beau.
I have appreciated everyone’s interest and readership during the ups and downs of my dating adventures.
If interested in other aspects of my life (some of which I’ve touched on here such as my affections for sci-fi, various fandoms I follow, interest in social justice and politics, and learning how not to be an asshole), I’ll be reaching out to you soon.
