I said in a Facebook post the other day that every time I move into another apartment, I usually tell myself I’m not going to smoke in my new place, that I’ll go outside to smoke. This will last maybe two or three days, then I go back to smoking inside. It’s just too much of a hassle to go outdoors. With my new place, this thought of not smoking inside it only lasted a few hours, so the time spent in fooling myself was less. Should I consider this progress? Probably not.
I do find myself smoking not as much now. Those cartons of cigarettes I have are lasting longer. Know where I keep those cartons? In my freezer.
Do they really stay fresher inside a freezer? I don’t really know, but I figure it’s not going to hurt keeping them there. I mean, they always taste fine—never stale. I don’t think there is anything worse than a stale cigarette.
When a pack of smokes starts to get low, I take a pack out of the freezer and let it “defrost.” I don’t think I actually have to do that—don’t think cigarettes need to “defrost,” but that’s in my head anyway. Probably if I didn’t do this, I would only be smoking cold cigarettes.
By the way, I always keep my ice cubes in the freezer too. Yeah, I know. I’ll shut up now.
