Get that turkey a sweater!

Things in the world of Button have been pretty hetic lately so you're getting something short and sweet but full of victory. I'm

I've decided today to use the blog to toot my own horn today.  I think I'm allowed every so often.

After years of half-assed attempts I was finally able to quit smoking. No gum, no pills, no patches, just cold turkey. At nearly $10 a pack locally I could no longer justify paying so much money to kill myself. Also with a history of heart disease and cancer in my family I couldn't really ignore the stupidity any longer.

The funny thing is that I don't feel all that different. People are always talking about how they can smell, taste or breath better and I haven't noticed any of that. Maybe I'm just not paying attention. I actually don't even notice a difference when I'm doing a cardio work out. The only difference seems to be that I'm hungrier than I used to be. I'm trying to combat this with water instead of snacks because in my world weight gain = depression = smoking. So yeah, we'll be avoiding that.

I'm really proud of myself and I just wanted to let the world know. :-D


  1. Yay!!

    It took me a few months before I noticed things starting to taste better : )
