Welcome. :)

Welcome to my blog. Here I share my successes and failures along my journey to becoming an anthropologist. My most prominent interest anthropologically are the new approaches to handing food security/healthy eating in the US, particularly in urban "food deserts". I enjoy the Anthropology of Tourism as well; combining food and tourism has scholarly promise. My other interests which have converted into anthropological hobbies of sorts include converts to Islam, diaspora of Muslims, and MENA in general. I also have some interest in historical archaeology.

I welcome comments, discussion and even respectful debating. I will however keep discussions to a respectable level. I reserve the right to ban anyone from this forum.

Finally quit

I have finally quit smoking with the miracle drug Chantix. I love this stuff. Blocks the receptors in the brain that tell ya to smoke! I am kinda depressed today for whatever reason but whatever...it's my first day as a non-smoker (once again but this time it is duable).

Other than that, school is a struggle...I am signed up for arabic in the fall. I also have 4 anthropology classes I am registered for. I want to graduate Dec of 2010. I need to be over with it. It will be a rough year and a half folks...

Good luck with quitting smoking - I know how difficult it can be, but it will be so worth it. And best wishes in school too - you've got a lot on your plate, girl!

Hi, Great step to stop with. I had cut down to about 3 cigarettes for the first 3 or 4 days. Then I was down to 1 a day. Now I am free to, lets make this happen :D
Good luck!

I quit with Chantix too. My husband did it first but he continued to smoke as long as I did. I finally stopped completely and I can't tell you how good it felt to be FREE!!

I really didn't find it hard to do. I continued to smoke while taking the Chantix. The cigarettes tasted like crap and I would only take a few hits and then put it out and save it for the next time that I felt I needed a cigarette. A couple of weeks into that I quit completely and I even quit taking the pills.

After I quit I continued to go out for cigarette breaks with my co worker but I would have an 'apple break' instead. I really did not miss the smoking at all.

Good luck to you! Keep it up!

Thanks! I am now 8 days free. :)

My husband will go out for one but when he comes back in, he stinks. I guess I was like that too! Bleh.
Congrats to you as well.
I have saved over 31.00 so far...
