The First Five Days – Part II
The start of the second day was definitely more of a challenge, as I was awake much longer and back to my normal work routine. The majority of my work revolves around the computer, and seeing as I work from the house, it presents a perfect opportunity to dip that snuff all day long. Even with the patch, the cravings were very strong throughout the day.
So what does, ‘the cravings were very strong all day’ mean exactly? Let me give you the rundown of what my typical work day was like when I used to report to Copenhagen snuff.
8:00 am ~ 8:30 am – Get up, brush my teeth, and head downstairs to get some coffee
8:31 am ~ 10:00 am - Take my first dip of snuff for the day
10:01 am ~ 10:15 am - Eat breakfast
10:16 am ~ 11:30 am – Take my second dip of snuff for the day
11:31 am ~ 12:00 pm – Get a shower and get dressed
12:01 pm ~ 12:15 pm – Eat lunch
12:16 pm ~ 1:30 pm – Take my third dip of snuff for the day
1:31 pm ~ 1:45 pm – Have a snack, not so much because I needed one, but to eat something to make the snuff feel better in my mouth – how freaking messed up is that!
1:46 pm ~ 3:00 pm – Take my fourth dip of snuff for the day
4:00 pm ~ 5:00 pm – Take my fifth dip of snuff for the day – “the pre-workout snuff”
5:00 pm ~ 6:00 pm – hit the gym – keeping the outside looking good while destroying the inside
6:00 pm ~ 6:30 pm – Take my sixth dip of snuff for the day – “the post-workout, in the shower snuff”
6:31 pm ~ 7:00 pm – Eat dinner with my wife
7:01 pm ~ 8:00 pm – Take my seventh dip of snuff for the day while watching tv with my wife – sick I know, but remember I don’t spit (I’m always rationalizing)
8:01 pm ~ 9:30 pm – spending time with my wife – no snuff
9:31 pm ~ 11:00 pm – Take my eighth dip of snuff for the day while I catch up on work
12:00 am ~ Sleep – Take my ninth dip of snuff for the day as I lay in bed and read the news on my iPod Touch
I know that it might seem like a huge waste of blog space to detail my day by the hour, but I really wanted to give you a glimpse into my typical work day and how it involved the use of snuff.
