Five Months!

Five months ago today I smoked my last cigarette and never looked back.

This is probably going to sound ridiculous, but as I approach the half-year mark I'm proud of myself in a way I've never been before.

Edited to add: Also, I just did the calculations and I've saved a little over $1,000 so far just from quitting! Holy crap!

Two Great Things About Brooklyn

See this? This was my lunch today:

Deep fried pizza at the Chip Shop on Atlantic Avenue and Henry Street. It was AMAZING! And as soon as the Cardiologist releases me from the hospital, I'm going back for more!

In other "Brooklyn is awesome" news, here's an article from the New York Times about bar trivia (a.k.a. pub quizzes, for you Anglophiles) in Brooklyn, including the one at Bar Great Harry, which is where I play. I like to think the sentence "The 12 teams chose names that ranged from clever (Non-Dairy Cremaster) to cute (Outnumbered by Cats) to unprintable" is a direct reference to my own Team Totally Tits!
