1 month.....clean


Twila
#1
Actually it's been over 1 month. It's almost been 1 month and 2 weeks that I've been clean.....

Tobacco less actually. I've been waiting to weigh myself. Tried to hold out for as long as possible.

I was able to hold out until yesterday. I've gained weight....2 whole pounds! What a disappointment. Worse I think it may actually have been my sweater that increased my weight by 2lbs.


So. Now that we are all really sick of hearing how Twila has quit smoking........the next update will be at the 6 months mark....maybe by then I'll actually have some kind of weight gain to be happy about!

Congratulations. Keep it up.

Is the cigarette black market still a problem in Canada?
 
I think not

The only reason why you may be gaining weight, is because you try to keep your hands busy and eat more. Been there, done that, so back to smoking for me.

From what I gather..yes.


ITN I may be the only female you will ever meet (well you know) that actually is looking forward to gaining weight. Last time I was able to gain any weight was about 6 months before my daughter was born! It didn't last..............

Think positive - maybe the 2 pounds are underneath your sweater!

Thank you. thank you, thank you.

The real test of my will power comes up in Aug. I'm getting married. And if I can not smoke before, during and after that then I'll have this thing licked!

But I'm not really holding out much faith on that. The alternative to smoking is to drink. I don't think my fiance wants to stand before the JP with drunk on his arm!

K.2LBS under the sweater would be ok. anymore and how the hell am I suppose to run? clap? lie on my stomach? or even see my if I'm wearing socks and or shoes that match?

oh yes it always sounds good to increase your bust until you are forced to live with the ramifications of it. lol

Thanks Jay. I'll hold you to that "married life is great" .
My parents have been together since they were 14 yrs old. Married since they were 19. I know it can be done...........And they still love each other, respect each other and treat each other like they're newly weds.

Congratulations Ten Packs.

It's nice to see that not all humans fall prey to our disposable society.

Did you have to look that up, Ten Packs? I have no idea how long I've been married for...since sometime in the '80's I know, but the exact year? I always have to look it up.

High five to you, Twila! That whole not smoking thing is tough. I quit for 18 months and hated it the whole time.

You're not the only one who wants to gain weight ... I lost a whole bunch of weight last year and looked like a walking corpse. I've only just got my boobs back recently. I don't even mind the love handles that came with!

I've been sober since '87 so I know the drill on that one. Yer definitely better to smoke than sip ... you might not smell so great but at least you won't end up in bed with the best man!

Anyway, congrats and good luck on the smoke free and the wedding! I'm getting married this month too. Yay!

Everyone is quitting smoking and quitting drinking, and getting married.....

It must be part of the domestication of our species.

I still smoke and drink, Jay. Somebody has to pay the taxes in this country.

Speaking of smoking...I was rolling a cigarette while out driving in my truck and when I went to lick the paper I hit a bump and jammed my tongue into the loose tobacco. There's still little tobacco chunks all over my windshield.

When I think of domestication, I donít think of the Dear Ol' Reverend Blair.

BWAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

More like "anarchy"....

I'm the very model of a well-behaved husband.

Think I'll put on pants and go buy some beer.

Funny, but I got the impression that the Rev was very domesticated. Maybe we all have different visions of domestication.....


Thanks Cosmo. I can completley relate to the quitting and hating it. I'm working on whether I hate not smoking or hate being addicted more. Hopefully with this enlightenment will come a sort of mental calm about the whole issue. I may also be able to give up the second hand smoke addiction that has occured in the void........

I have 1 huge fear about actually gaining weight. My fear is that I may not like it and then I won't be able to loose it. I think I may have a phobia about too much jiggle........

Congratulations on your upcoming nuptials. Nervous yet? I just had my first nightmare about mine.

Married life will be just fine for you Twila.

well I'm easy going....for most of the month...

I think that it would have been a concern and proof of undomesticity if Rev had gone to the store with out pants on.

I would have, Twila but I needed a pocket for my wallet.

Na, Twila, not nervous at all. Just want to get the paperwork out of the way in case the crazies change the laws on us. It's a matter of waiting till Shell is well enough to do the deed.

As for Rev being domesticated ... with all the recipes you post and the stories about your home life, sounds to me like you've settled in quite comfortably to matrimonial bliss. Mrs. Rev is lucky ... sounds like you do your share of the cooking/housework/fur-kid care.

Even anarchists like the comforts of home, ya know!

Housework is easy and...not to brag because I ain't exactly a chef...but I'm a way better cook than Mrs Rev.

We just grew up with this stuff. I have three brothers, no girls in the family, so the division of labour roughly broke down into load the dishwasher or shovel gravel. I've done both and loading the dishwasher is easier.

If you want to see true domestication, check out Zen. His cooking consists of a lot more than mixing hamburger with rice.

I too do the majority of the house work, and I'm a better cook (maybe) than my wife.

I just considered myself a "liberated" man.
