Umm, either late stage 2 or early stage 3. I know I'm in full ketosis,...
Hey Pillager :),
Enjoying your stories, thanks for the entertainment :). i believe 496 was asking what state you live in.
Oddly enough, though I frequently enjoy the company of the ladies, I've been oddly content to be celibate this whole time. Maybe it's because I'm not boozing it up like I usually do.
During a water fast, sex drive will very commonly cease to exist or at least be greatly minimized. That energy is diverted to the cause of cleansing and healing.
Free anything I want to drink is a perk of management and sweat equity into running the place but it can also be a curse, b/c I always wanna smoke when I drink.
... The two have gone hand in hand since I was 12...
... though I've tried several times and have even gone 8 months without smoking before reverting to old habits, partly due to the drink.
I'm not sure if I'm ready to surrender the vice I enjoy to rid myself of the one I hate. This is maybe the last
Oo-rah I'll give quitting in my early/mid twenties... Kind of my all or nothing for the decade.
A fairly common dilemma. From what i have seen with other people, if you are serious about quitting smoking, you will probably have to quit drinking too... i know not an easy thing in your working environment.
