It is believed that it takes 28 days to form or break a habit. Last Saturday, January 26 was actually my 28th day of being cigarette free. Ironically, it was the toughest test of my being a smoke-free mortal. This was the day I caught-up with my super friends who knows that I am a notorious smoker every time we would go out.
We convened at Sofitel Philippine Plaza Hotel I did not smoke. We had dinner at a Filipino restaurant in Resorts World I did not smoke. And the hurdle of all hurdles, we went to a smoke-filled dance club along Julia Vargas Avenue in Pasig later that same night and I surprisingly did not lit a cigarette. I’m even proud to say that I never psychopathically craved for it the whole time I was with my great buddies. No drooling, no chills, no big cold sweats. I was normal and simply had pure fun.
With this, I can superciliously announce that I passed the test, emerged triumphant and totally broke the noxious smoking habit.
Aym pretty shur gradweyt na ko sa yosi.
