Hazardous to Your Health
It's amazing to remember how impossible it seemed, for years, to kick the habit, and then one day I made a New Year's resolution, went cold turkey, and just like that it was all over. Now I'm wondering how many other apparently impenetrable barriers I can burst through with no effort at all. I'd been playing around with the idea of quitting for a long time, telling everyone that I'd given it up while schnorring from everyone in sight, so much that I was straining friendships and offending strangers. I especially liked Tom Waits' line to Iggy Pop in Coffee and Cigarettes: "Since I quit, I can have one." Well, I've really quit now, and I won't be having another one.
