It’s been….

..3 months since I last smoked a cigarette. Yes, I am trying my best to kick the habit. I am not a chain smoker – smoking a pack a day, I am more of a casual smoker and a pack of 20 sticks can last me about 4 days. The reason why I kicked the habit is because getting expensive to smoke – a pack of Dunhill cost RM9.00 and besides, cigarette smoking is detrimental to one’s lungs.

To kick this habit is kinda hard. I mean the temptation to smoke a fag is still there but I manage to suppress this deadly urge. How ? you may ask. Simple. I substitute this urge to smoke by drinking coffee. I love coffee – no not that 3-in-1instant coffee in a sachet but the one which you have to mix is with sugar and creamer. I normally pour about two tablespoons of ground coffee powder into my cup and 1 teaspoon of sugar and creamer respectively. I just love the coffee powder. The smell can make one feel perky. Yes, now I am addicted to caffeine –  another deadly addicted and I notice that I can drink up to 6 cups of coffee a day. I need to drink coffee after every meal. Even before I go to sleep at night, I need my cuppa. My wife notices my coffee addiction and has been reminding me to cut down on my caffeine intake. I told her at least it beats polluting my lungs but she reluctantly agrees as always.

Funny how one bad habit can be easily subsituted by another equally bad habit….hmmmmmm…

    I’m cutting down from buying 20-sticks pack to 14-sticks pack twice a week.

    I’m not addicted, actually. Went back to JB and didn’t smoke throughout the 7-days without me growing horns or sneaking cigarette breaks.

    More of a social smoker… I smoke more when I go out clubbing though.
