Then I found the gym.

I joined the gym and quit smoking (the first time) at the same time.

Quitting smoking was really really really really really really hard. I used to smoke rollies and I would roll them fairly small but have one about every 20 minute (unless I had an hour long class, or something).

It meant that cravings for cigarettes were pretty constant / intense. For... Months, honestly.

The only time I wasn't craving a cigarette was when I was at the gym. New habit. Also feeling out of breath or muscle burn or whatever simply took my mind off of cigarettes.

So... Fairly easy for me to get hooked on the gym. How the gym made me feel.

Then, a couple months in I got pretty sick. From the crap being coughed up out of my airways, I think. Maybe a new variety of Staphylococcus Aureus. Maybe a bit of both.

Pseudoephedrine helped the gym, then. I think. I learned to focus / zone a bit on the elliptical. Then later, I sort of kept the ability to find that from within myself without the cold and flu tablets.
