The first post of the new year and it's just not all that special. I'm working on a few things that you'll be able to see later, but for now you'll have to settle for a random doodle of absolutely nobody. Though, once I finished it felt sort of like Michael Chiklis from the Shield. I do love that show, so maybe it snuck in. Whatever, there you go.
Now, something is missing. Yes. I have quite smoking. As I type this, I'm on my 8th day with no cigarettes. I used the nicorette gum for the first few days but seemed to not need it after I got over the hump. The first 3 days were fucking hell and I can't believe I made it. Now, I'm over the urge to smoke, but I still find images of cigarettes jumping in my head. It's like having long hair for 14 years and then cutting it all off one day. The first few days you want your hair back. Then you're glad it's gone but you still feel as if something is missing. Like washing your hair right...you used to have more to wash. I feel like part of my arm isn't there. It's not bad, just odd.
I've realized that I've never spent a day of my adult life with out smoking almost a pack. That's insane, and a little sad. I walked outside on the 5th day of the quit and something smacked me in the face. It was strange and something I didn't even know I haven't really experienced before. It was the smell of fresh air. I know, this sounds lame and a little bit emo...fuck you! It's for real. I never knew how much smoking really takes away your sense of smell. So, things are very differen't in my life right now, there you go.
I'm also working on switching over my blog to Wordpress so I can have a little more of a custom site. For the time being you'll see my posts here and there.
