Smoking blogs redux

This entry is actually being written on October 11 2014. I've spent the last month giving up smoking.

As part of my therapy I've been blogging every night since the 3rd night on the Quit-line site.

Quit-line is censored and it's also not the worlds greatest site for anything that isn't totally focussed on the process of smoking cessation. As always with me nothing is ever totally focussed on one thing so I've decided I want to repatriate my writing to a site I control.

I'll be republishing (sometimes edited) versions of my Quit-line blogs on here. This raises an interesting question about dates.

For historicity I want the blog date to be the original publication date, but I don't want to just suddenly dump 45 posts into the history of this blog. So I've decided to initially post them in something approaching a compressed version of real-time (two or 3 a day) but with the original date on them until I'm up-to-date.

I'll start with a (reconstructed) day I started preparing to quit followed by the blogs.

At some future point I'll move this explanation to where it belongs towards the start of the chronology. I've moved it to the start.
