So far so good with the smokes. Six so far, probably one more before bed. Now all I have to do is smoke fewer than that every day for the rest of my entire life. However, since smoking involves effort, logically not smoking is the absence of effort and therfore incredibly easy.

I have the strangest urge to stab people in the neck though.

Best to nod and smile at me for a few days I reckon, I'm predisposed towards the idea that anyone disagreeing with me at the moment is some kind of fucking mental degenerate. Not that this differs much from the normal run of events but I don't usually want to punch people for it.

Fair point, I do want to punch an awful awful lot of people. That or invent some kind of "/ignore mental wanker" function for all five senses.

As someone who has never smoked I'm asking just one thing of you. Don't become one of those ex-smoker Anti-smoking Nazi Assholes.

Ex-smokers are by and large 10 times worse than non-smokers... You know, the whole self-righteous "Well I gave up , why can't you? " Bullcrap.

No worries there - for starters I'm not trying to become an ex-smoker, just cut down to two or three a day rather than occasionally hitting the twenty mark and even if I *DID* quit I hate those guys too - I've encountered a few of them and I felt quite uninclined to take health advice from either a bloke who was borderline morbidly obese or another one who wasn't much wider than my own leg. Seriously, quitting smoking was the *only* healthy thing these guys ever did and suddenly they're health experts.

Ye know Allen Carr? He wrote the Stop Smoking guide book?
Well after 20yrs of being a non-smoker he's been diagnosed with lung cancer. Fate can be a cruel jester.

I heard that alright, I also believe Penn and Teller interviewed him for their "Bullshit!" program and it turned out he was full of crap, a hypocrite and possibly insane. I must look that up again.
