Thanks for the support! I've cut down only slightly so far, going cold turkey isn't likely to work for me so I'm trying to take it slow and just extend the gaps, with my e-cig as a helper. So far so good! Last night (when things weren't so busy and stressful) I managed almost 3 hours without a smoke! Record breaking for me at least, although it doesn't sound like much at all to a non-smoker or a light smoker. But still, progress! Progress is good, and doesn't make ultimately quitting completely seem like such an impossible task.
This week has been so busy. I'm basically a shut-in, so seeing two people on Sunday with my partner, then seeing three people on my own and entertaining them at my place on Wednesday was really draining for me.
Then yesterday, we had to take everything out of our too-full wardrobe, rearrange it all and somehow find space for a gigantic suitcase my hoarder grandmother decided she didn't want taking up space in her room, but didn't want to get rid of. Blah! Then today, my partner and I installed two sets of blinds in the living room, and did a huge amount of shopping, made the trek home, and now it's water change time, because we won't be able to during the Big Convention Weekend. Haha.
Also getting some new piercings tomorrow! Yayyy! We're going to a private "piercing party" hosted by some of the people who belong to one of the groups we're a member of, who run one of the best piercing studios in Melbourne. Hooray! Half price piercings with top-notch professionals and people we like!
Dang, my chest and belly button are going to be sore for the next (insert however many months they'll take to heal here). Hopefully everything heals up nicely this time, last time I had them done, I had to remove them after a year of meticulously caring for the piercings, because they just weren't healing, and I didn't feel comfortable wearing latex clothing with unhealed piercings, and really wanted to get a good night's sleep where I didn't wake myself up by rolling over onto them, haha. Hopefully getting them pierced at a larger gauge will help the healing, as I've heard that can be something that drastically changes healing of those piercings for women.
But yes, YAYYYYY!! Also, duckweed and sponge filters have arrived, so it's all systems go for next weekend (the next available few days that are completely free) for the tank remodel! Wooooo!!
