I. Have. Finally. Done It!!
With the aid of my new little friend, the e-cigarette, I have, after 23 years of on again-off again tobacco smoking, kicked tobacco out of my life.
It’s been 8 days since my last ‘traditional’ toxin-laden tobacco cigarette death machine.
No, using an e-cig is NOT cheating. I am brimming with confidence that my days as a ‘filthy smoker’ are over. No other method has given me this confidence. Nicotine patches made my heart palpitate like crazy. Nicotine gum was so awful, that after a single taste I just knew it would never help. Pharmaceutical medication was never on the agenda (I hate those bastards – and I know two people who admitted to suicidal ideation and bizarre nightmare experiences while prescribed. And, did I mention? – I hate those bastards.). And, simple good-old-fashioned willpower was NEVER going to work for me – I am the owner of a physiology and a psychology designed to become addicted to, well, just about anything…
So my ‘last gasp’ attempt at kicking the sticks was to replace the sticks with other sticks. Yay! Battery technology, micro-computing, and basic chemistry and electronics have combined to make this 21-st century marvel possible.
I am vaporising like a demon. And now I can legitimately, and without a hint of hypocrisy, add Big Tobacco to my Boycott! list, here. Fuck you, Imperial Tobacco, British American Tobacco, et al., you get no coin from me, no more. Ha! Fuck you, tax collectors and corporate money-changers, you get no tobacco-coin from me, no more. Ha! Ha!
Thanks for listening.
