Apples Do Nothing For Cigarette Cravings

Note to self: The doctor still hasn't showed up yet though, so that old adage may still hold true.

I haven't touched a cigarette in five and a half full days (I feel like one of the kids saying that, the six and a half year old in particular). As of five minutes ago, I weigh exactly the same as I did last weekend, which means I'm mostly keeping myself from eating a bunch of garbage to control cravings.

For some reason or another, I just found myself thinking about a cigarette. As I have been doing in these situations, I tried something new, an apple this time.

While I am satisfied that the doctor will likely not be making any house calls this day, a big chug of flavored seltzer water (it's black cherry right now) is far higher on the it fights cravings scale than the apple, which sits at zero.

Now Chris...just so I'm clear...you didn't try to *smoke* the apple...right?

I'm partial to the lemon/lime seltzer, but watch the intake. Some of the seltzers can have a ton of sodium even if there isn't any calories.

Ha ha, apple smoking... sounds like something I might have seen in a movie or something. Or was that high school?

I checked out my seltzer, and it has no sodium either. Just water and lots of bubbles.
