Who Is Bigger—You or a Cigarette?
Think you’re the only one going through cigarette withdrawal? Scott Sexton, a columnist for the Winston-Salem Journal, has been writing about his goal of quitting smoking and you might notice a few common experiences. He’s quit for nearly two weeks now.
Aside from venting about his experience waking up in cold sweats, he says that he is amazed at how much support he has received in his quest to kick the habit. Many readers have been writing in with advice, such as avoiding situations associated with smoking and asking friends and family for support. “You just have to look at that thing and ask yourself ‘Who’s bigger? Me or that damn cigarette?” one reader wrote in a fan letter. Who can argue with that?
Of course, it doesn’t help that he works for a newspaper whose name resembles two brands of cigarettes, but he’s doing his best. [Winston-Salem Journal]
