The motivatorWhy do I want to give up smoking. All smokers ask themselves this question.
Faster running times
The truth is smoking makes me ill, and these days I do it to punish myself. . So it's time to love myself
So I am going to talk you through my giving up journey with Boxsets and films.
Day 1: Nip tuck (7/11/2014)It is Friday 7th November. I already tried giving up smoking on Wednesday but relapsed on Thursday. I day, how poor.
So sat writing this blog as I catch up Nip Tuck on TV episode 4 series 5. Its the most mind sapping series of Nip Tuck ever, not to say the other series were much better after season 2. Nip Tuck centres around Christian Troy and Sean McNemara.
The plots just keep getting more stranger. I get the strong impression that by this point in the 5/6 series the producer was floundering and ideas were drying up. I am watching the episodes more out of duty I owe to the characters. Not sure I can manage series 6 though.
Still if I could just get through disc 7 my duty will be honoured. As the characters reach their mid fourties they really are reminding me of my own mortality as well. Not good , need to drop this boxset soon. Do not want thee same feeling I got when I got to the eend of 6 Feet Under. I am not even going to remind myself of how that ended. It has taken this long to get over that feeling of mortality and blogging about the end would only put an end to that time sensitive therapy.
I am actually watching a kid having plastic surgery to make himself look older so as to please his older pregnant girlfriend, incidentally on the sex offenders register having served jailed time for her relationship with the boy. Apparently to stop other people noticing the age differences. After thee operation the look on her face betrays the truth as she looks at the boys younger brother. She is a paedophile attracted to young boys.
The on going scenes of Christian having sex with woman now has become boring and sad. What is the producer thinking I say at this point. Troy's ex girlfriend, who has had a baby with his son, so the baby is his granddaughter , wants to give the 5 month old baby collagen injections. The majority of the characters are mental with no sense of morality.
Day2 : Gammorah (8/11)
Gamorrah, wow , is a very violent Italian mobster boxset. It is a mix between The Wire and The Surpranos.
Day3 : Greys Anatomy - Season 10 (9/11)Series 10 of Greys Anatomy is greattttttttttt. Missed the theme tune , missed the characters. The emotional content is as good as ever too.
Episode 1 :
Begins where season 9 finishes. Richard Webb on the floor after a huge electric shock.
Episode 2-4 :
Takes us through the relationship between our two lesbian attendees as they struggle to be civil to each other after one caught the other of extra marital affair/fling in season 9. They also focus on attempts to raise money to rebuild the damaged hospital. I love the way we now focus on the new trainees while the established characters play mothers and fathers to the new generation.
"Nobody knows where we might end up, nobody knows".
Day1 Greys Anatomy - Season 10 (15/11/2014)Yesterday I had relapse and smoked a cigarette. Woke up disappointed with a deflated feeling. Went for a 9k run to punish my body or myself for capitulating.
I think I may over did it cause my thighs are chaffed raw and l mean raw. However its the jazz festival at South Bank today and i am heading there.
The world is my oyster. With my new weapon of choice, my tablet i'm off to tap into BFBI_WIFi.
Oh and catch some Jazz organised by South Bank
Day 2 : Greys Anatomy - Season 10(15/11/2014)
"Dr Derrick Sheppard please hold for the president of the United States"
Who has given up recently?
Do you have any tips guys.
Has anyone managed the whole season of Nip Tuck without becoming an alcoholic?
Motivational events this week
SAN FRANCISCO -- Fire officials said 21 people at an event hosted by motivational speaker Tony Robbins suffered burns while walking across hot coals and three of the injured were treated at hospitals.
The injuries took place during the first day Thursday of a four-day event at the San Jose Convention Center hosted by Robbins called "Unleash the Power Within." Most of those hurt had second and third degree burns, said San Jose Fire Department Capt. Reggie Williams.
Walking across hot coals on lanes measuring 10 feet long and heated to between 1,200 to 2,000 degrees provides attendees an opportunity to "understand that there is absolutely nothing you can't overcome," according to the motivational speaker's website.
Walking on hot coals to prove you have cum thus far. Foolish or Brave?
I admire the teachings of Anthony Robbins. You?
