DaY 9- Only the Doggy
I've had to relearn hand habits while driving, ecig in my right hand, instead of cigarette in the left next to the extra ashtray I had hanging in a cupholder off the window ledge. It's nice to have a bottle of water in the cupholder now, easily grabbed when thirsty!
I also know now when oral hygiene is necessary- can taste the change(in the service industry this is a very good thing :D, and am excited to go see someone I've missed for a long time, and be confident they won't taste ashtray when we smooch ;)
Sat on the couch last nite with a jones to go outside, as was my habit, to smoke in-between movies. It's amazing what we get chained to; not just substances, but actions and thought processes too.
So I vaped my Zeus(that is so big in cigar-like fashion I've named it Boyfriend) without the trip down 15 stairs and out to a porch and decided to go to bed instead.
Today is Day 9 off tobacco and tomorrow I will lower the nicotine level in my ecigs abit. Just a wee bit. Taking it slow as I really am enjoying this. Tank, smileomizer; they're both great on a zeus!
I don't have to sit outside to smoke in violent thunderstorms or winter blizzards. The cold of winter and the blazing heat & humidity of summer(well it CouLD happen, maybe not this year, but it CouLD), will be outside while I am inside when I choose to be, rather than when poisonous plant leaves wrapped in paper call my name. The dog still has the power to make me go enjoy the garden though.
As I've said before, I can smell flowers again, this morning I also realized I can smell my wee doggy's poo as she drops it 30 feet away. FFS!
I love reliving these memories through you Ladyfriend! Isn't it amazing how your life changes in so many ways once you start to lose the old habits (and smells)! Funny thing is, certain things trigger me to run outdoors to smoke (like the end of a movie)... I find myself getting up and starting to go outside almost instinctively and then I remember... I DON"T NEED TO! Those are the best moments...... especially when the weather is bad!!! And I understand the boyfriend thing (Zeus)...... mine even sleeps with me!! ;)
I take mine to bed with me too!
Good job ladyfriend. My worst trigger moment that I got over was getting in my car, and heading off to work. Every day I used to smoke at least 2 stinkies along the way..

Vaping in bed is fairly "new" to me, as I haven't used a cig betwix'd the sheets in years and years...
At the end of the day, when all of my high-powered fog machines have put on their stockings and night caps, my trusty Titans stand (or lay rather) at the ready on the nightstand, for the evening wind down. I've even been known to take a draw or three in the middle of the night ;)

Thanks for the update Ladyfriend! And congrats on 9 days!! It's good to hear you are regaining things like smell, even if there are some bad ones out there!
