Until recently, I was a stay at home mom blogger, sandwiching blog posts between household tasks, littles and my animal companions. I could also choose to have a cigarette whenever I wanted to and it didn’t impact anyone but me.
In April that all changed and I went to work, part time, volunteering for a low cost spay and neuter clinic about 45 minutes from home.
Now, as a volunteer, I suppose I could do pretty much what I like whenever I feel like doing it, but that’s not the way I roll. I think I have a pretty good work ethic and that dictates, at least to me, scheduled breaks during the day and giving the clinic my best work the rest of the time.
I love my time at the clinic, but it certainly was an eye opener at first. No more dawdling over my coffee in the morning. No sir, now I grab a cuppa to sip as I dress and top it off on my way out the door. When I walk into the clinic, I hit the ground running and don’t stop until my shift is over. It’s a busy, but rewarding day.
It was a challenge for me to get used to a work routine, after so many years at home, made worse, no doubt, by not being able to satisfy my nicotine cravings whenever I wanted to. Thankfully, a co-worker told me about electronic cigarettes and I’ve been happily puffing away since.
Strangely enough, although I started with e cigs as a way to get me through the day, I’ve since discovered other benefits too. A big plus, to me, is the cleanliness factor. No more smelling of smoke when I come back in from a smoke break. I hadn’t realized how I smelled until I was in a totally smoke free environment. I also love not having stinky nasty ashtrays to empty and wash. What an eye opener!
They’re cheaper! When I sat down to do the math, I was shocked. I can save over $1,500.00 a year using e cigs from www.21stcenturysmoke.com! Who doesn’t want to pocket that much cash each year?
Do you still smoke tobacco? Have you ever tried e cigarettes? Leave a comment below and tell me what your experience has been!
