Here we go again.
Beasts annual 'give up smoking and diet' train wreck.
This time I have enrolled with smoke stop for 1-to-1 therapy , rather than the ghastly group therapy session
ahem ' My names Beast and I am a smoker'
***embarrassed ragged round of applause***
Bollocks to that , I am also giving the new drug Champix a try .I have started the drug but don't have to give up smoking till next week .
Now Champix is generally very good in 70% of people but has some startlingly bad side effects in a few , so they are quiet careful with monitoring you in the early stages . My session today started with my counsellor ,we shall call him The twat in the cravat , yes yes he actually wears a cravat , and has that foppish Lawrence Llewellyn Bowen 'artistic' bleating voice .He peered at me closely, like he was inspecting some sort of laboratory experiment that is about to explode , then asked me very loudly and slowly if I had gone mental yet.
He gave every indication of not believing me and was somewhat disappointed when I said I hadn't.
Still he cheered up a little when informing me the REAL danger period was the next week when the dose doubles ,and then chirruped happily 'how some of his clients had had some really AWFUL incidents but not to worry nobody has died......... YET '.
So feeling suitably motivated .....I left . If I haven't gone frothing mad by next week , I think he may cry.
Just to make things interesting I have also gone back to Slimming World . Why make yourself suffer with giving up smoking , when you can starve yourself to death at the same time.
I shall let you all know how its going , In the mean time if you hear anything howling at the moon.
Its probably just me!
