It's been 3 days...

...since my last cigarette. I'll admit I'm finding it hard - my left hand keeps roaming across my desk, vainly trying to grope for the packet and lighter that used to lie there. Several times I resisted the urge to rush to the corner shop and restock. I resorted to my stash of nicotine patches in the end - although it's curbing the cravings, it doesn't cure the restless left hand problem. My friend J thoughtfully brought me clary sage oil to inhale as an antidote, until I remembered that it triggers seizures.

So I've thrown myself into a burst of productivity to distract myself. I had a massive pitchfest yesterday and today, trying to sell some features. No positive responses yet, but I'll keep trying. I've also ploughed through mountains of emails and scribbled 200 words for a mag I write for regularly. Now to snare some solid editing work too...

I feel mortified... I should have checked as to whether or not it might trigger seizures. I'm so sorry.
