I know that this is pretty small potatoes, but today is two weeks without any nicotine lozenges.

I've never actually smoked a cigarette in my life. I had just heard that nicotine lozenges could help me focus, so about four years back I started using them specifically when i was working on a project and needed a little boost.

This gradually expanded to popping in a lozenge before I got out of bed and having one in pretty much continuously until bedtime.

I've "quit" several times, but some stressor would eventually make me cave. I learned during this process that if you let all the nicotine get out of your system and then go back, it feels amazing.

I'm past the physical withdrawal, but psychologically I still yearn for them. I also miss what an appetite suppressant they were.

Hello new followers, I hope I don’t disappoint you. I want this place to feel like home, where we can escape the Thunderdome and process the world. Where we can post dog pics and recipes and book recommendations. Where we support each other as we get sober, lose weight, embark on new business opportunities, creative endeavors, relationships and travels. I want this to be your oasis of sanity and laughter in an increasingly mad world. A creative outlet where you can share your spirit with us.

We might not have any control over the news cycle—but we can control our habits and attitude. It all starts with us. And hopefully a little piece of that will start here.
