A few new laws went into effect in Connecticut on Thursday.
The one that no longer effects me is the one I can most identify with. The cigarette tax went up a buck. I quit two years ago, and thank heaven I rarely have a craving. I can be in a room with a smoker and not have a problem.
I find this nothing short of amazing, because there was a time I thought I would never be able to quit. I could live the rest of my life without another Jack on the rocks, or without another medium rare filet. But without smokes? Unthinkable.
But think again. It happened.
If you’re a smoker panicking over the cost of a pack of cigarettes, fuggedaboudit. You will find a way to pay for them. You want them, you love them, you need them, you are addicted to them. You may sacrifice something else, but you will find a way to pay for them. I know.
When you quit, it will be because you want to. You really, really want to.
