Operation: Quitting for Katie

Smoking is a big pain in the ass. I wake up with chest pains… don’t feel alive until I light up the first cigarette… start shaking when it’s been more than a few hours without nicotine… constantly smell like an ashtray.

At the same time, I just can’t quit it… craving the feeling of calm that it brings… the perfect pairing of coffee and a cigarette… enjoying a drag after a long day at work… the people that have come into my life because of the social aspect.

It’s time to make a major change in my life. It’s time to quit smoking. I can’t do it alone – I’ve already proved that. I need your help. I want to turn my poor choice of smoking into a positive. I’m looking to raise money to not only serve as my motivator to kick the habit, but to also benefit the Katie Memorial Foundation, an organization with which I have a personal connection.

I intend to use the blog as a way to share my little successes, vent my possible frustrations and give you some insight into what’s it like. It’s going to be a process and one that I know that I can do… with a little help from my friends.

Alright, here goes nothing. Wish me luck. Or better yet, throw me some change.

    I’m inspired. I’m unemployed and living off my mother, but I’ll keep following, and whenever I get back on my feet, I’ll be there with monetary support. In the meantime, I’ll support you with the best emotional and mental gifts I can offer.

    Best of luck in your journey.
