Broadcasting Live from the Harvard Dorms.... I just got out of the shower and am getting ready to go get a cup of coffee before walking the 3/4 of a mile to class. A nice breeze is coming through the window....ah the little things in life! Today is the last day of lecture and then we have presentations of our research tomorrow and I will be coming home! I cannot wait to sleep in my own bed!
As for smoking, I finally feel like the end of the rough patch has come to an end (at least for now). I was walking around Harvard Square last night and a lot of people were smoking. At first I thought that it seemed like I was seeing more smoking than usual but then one of the participants of my research group mentioned that she had not seen so many people smoking in a long time. I think part of the reason so many people were smoking is this area is a big tourist attraction and attracts people from all over the world. (Lots of people from other countries, like China, have not gotten hip to the anti-smoke campaigns yet.) Anyway, for the first time in like ten days, I did not feel like I was missing anything! I was thinking, "Better them than me!" That is huge since only days ago, I was wanting to go to the Hookah lounge! Fortunately, I know that if I just wait the craving through, the feeling will pass! The hard part is the waiting process. Anyway, I am glad I am looking forward to being eight months removed from this horrible addiction on July 11th which will be tomorrow!
