Out of Pocket

Today is Smoke-free Day 93.

I'm about to potentially be out of pocket for awhile - funny use of the term "out of pocket," but for some reason it makes me giggle (first heard it from a customer and thought his English was just off, but turns out people do say it), even if others hate it. I get to use the term if I want because it's my blog, and I don't smoke, so I'll do how I like.

Anyway, the reason I'll be out of pocket is that my dear friend J will be arriving shortly (and I'm so excited I could pee my pants, but then I'd smell bad, and as a non-smoker, I enjoy smelling good instead, so I'll contain myself). If you haven't been reading along or remembering every detail I've ever said (re-cap stolen from previous post) he's the one who told me about Chantix, shared his mom's Chantix story with me, and sometimes still walks outside when we talk. We've never been around each other without both of us smoking like chimneys with bad potty mouths. So now, it will be just the trash talk without the smoking, and it is going to be interesting, in a very good sort of "we'll live forever and be friends even longer" kind of way.

Hopefully I'll still get a chance to post some mornings, but if I'm silent for a few days, it just means that we had way too much fun but that all is still well and smoke-free. Because that's how we roll now. Life is good.

  6. Hey, Maggie. I found your blog yesterday, and have been reading some of your earlier posts regarding your experience with using Chantix to stop smoking. I just started on it (again) yesterday, so I'm really glad to have found your blog, and the links to other Chantix users' blogs, too. Have fun with your friend! I'll look forward to your future posts.
