I normally smoke about 40 cigarettes a day. I guess each cigarette takes about 5 minutes of my time. That means that I normally take 200 minutes per day to smoke. 200 minutes is over 3 hours. This means I am engaged with the smoking for a large percentage of my waking day. If I stay awake 12 hours a day, then smoking takes up about 1/4 of my day. I've now been off cigarettes for 65 days which means that I have not smoked 2,600 cigarettes in the last 2 months.
OK guys. I've been watching how I work over the last few months. I've noticed that in the last few weeks my powers of concentration have increased. Simply put, I'm able to sit down a lot longer without moving too much and feeling the need to get out of the room or the chair or wherever I am trapped. I am however feeling tired more often, kinda like I am recovering from a war. In the past I often felt trapped when I could not smoke. Going out and finding places to smoke like staircases, corridors, smoking rooms, designated smoking areas has been a common pastime. Now I still want to go out but I am going out for long walks and breathing in air. If there are flowers and cut grass along the way, even better.
