Do ya reckon smack will take away the nicotine cravings? It's gotta be 
worth a hit ...

I figure cold turkey is the way to go, mainly because I'm approaching this 
from a mind over matter perspective, and that's the only way I'll be 
satisfied with beating it.

I haven't eaten so far today, and it's after 7pm. It's really funny making 
a mental note of how productive I've been at work today (4 days of somebody 
else's work cleared in just under 2 and a half hours), yet how my attention 
span has just dropped to zero.

This isn't the first time I've tried to quit something addictive, but at 
least with Quake I could just un-install it.

Ghhhn. Arggh. Mmmmf.
