This was after I got up off my FACE. I had read a scripture in the Psalms. And what I personally 'read' was
"stop buying things that are not bread". And my first thought? No. You're kidding me right? It doesn't really say that does it? Uh. yes. Yes it does. I read it more than once. I can find it for you if you insist. But, regardless of what it says, I HEARD it say. Cigarettes are not food. Bread is life. Cigarettes are not.
However? I'm not hearing that message right now. All I hear is that it's one more thing I have to give up. And dangnabbit. I'm just not ready to put down the nicotine. I DID stop buying tobacco ... smoked my last of it Friday night August 19.
Now. To the idea of an electronic cigarette? It's cool. It's electronic. It comes in the smart little case. It has little parts that fit together and has a LED light that tells you when it's charged fully and when it's "going out". You have this little device (cartridge) that screws into the end of the cigarette (battery) and then has a USB port on the other end. I can recharge it using my computer or I have an adapter for the car ciggy lighter.
It seems like a good idea. There's no smoke. No smell. Just vapor created when the battery heats the liquid when you inhale. It's really quite genius and I am intrigued. I just want to quit because I want to not because I'm forced to. I'm too rebellious right now. I don't want to give up something else I enjoy.
It's been a hard year. Maybe next year I'll give it up. Right now? I can enjoy this little bit of technology and quit when I'm really ready, willing AND able!
