I quit smoking last year, and I’m surprisingly happy about it

I quit smoking last year, and I’m surprisingly happy about it

I have been a smoker since 2009. The past 3 years, I smoked a pack or two a day. Smoking brought me relief from stress, it made me feel better after a big meal, and it was perfect with a cup of coffee. When I was unemployed, I smoked a couple of packs a day out of sheer boredom.

There was also a social aspect: smokers tend to go on breaks together and chit-chat while puffing away.

 

So what made me decide to quit in December 2017?

My coworker got gifted a vape set by his friend, and I tried puffing on it just to see if it tasted good. I had tried vaping before, and I hated it because it made me cough.

This time around, though, I liked it enough to buy my own mod, atomizer, and juices. I was excited at the prospect of a new hobby. I watched videos on how to wick properly, and went to several vape shops to taste new juices.

STRESSED!

Yes, I needed that in all caps and with an exclamation point!

Past couple of weeks have been killing me. I have been frantically keeping up with my schoolwork, nursing a broken heart, going out with friends… Those are my priorities as of the moment (in order, thankyouverymuch).

College is getting to me. I’m already a second year student but it’s still surprising to find out how stressful the workload can get.

I sleep badly on weekdays now. In school, I feel like in a constant state of panic, thinking, “Pag-uwi ko, I should do this paper first, then another, then study pa for the quiz.” Too much to do and too little time to do it, so I have to do it half-assedly.
