The million dollar question

My friend looked at me and dropped a question probably many has thought about: what if you had one million dollar, what would you do with it? Would you invest it, or buy diamonds or a big house?

I turned around and said with dreamy eyes, I would let the world travel through me. He gave me a confused smile and said what?! Yes, just like I said it I would let the world travel through me. He looked curious waiting for my explanation.

I would go to Italy and visit one of those old cafes and drink a freshly maid cappuccino. Then I would go to South-America and learn how to dance Salsa. I would go to the Himalayas and meditate, and go to a village somewhere in Africa to live with the locals for a few weeks and get water each morning. Go on Safari and see the wild life from very close. I want to go to Brazil and learn how to play football on the street with the guys. Go to America and eat one of the biggest hamburgers. Ooh and don’t forget about Australia, learn how to surf and enjoy the campfire on the beach afterwards. I would probably go to more places I don’t even know they exist, find out what cultures are there are and let life travel through me. At the end I want to end up somewhere on a white beach, take a sip from my cocktail and dance like no one is watching me. Yea, I will definitely going to do that. Close my eyes and let the world travel through me.

Then I opened my eyes, I saw him looking at me and said “you are so silly”.

Tips and tricks

My first day without cigarettes, man it is hard! I’m moving all the time andĀ I cannot focus a 100% on one thing, I’m doing many things at the same time. Looking at my phone, blogging, writing my thesis, eating, thinking about running, thinking about when to book my tickets, where I should stay, who is passing me by now, what are people doing. ALL OF THIS at the same time in my head.

BUT until now I managed NOT to smoke, even though I want to run to the store now and by a new package.

So to keep my mind away from the cigarettes, I am now listening to some zen music.

I have read on the internet that eating bananas can help you stop quitting and also vegetables. They also recommend to not drinking coffee because it will give you the desire to smoke a cigarette as well. This is because smokers associatedĀ cigarettes with coffee. SO this morning I did not have coffee but a forest fruit tea. I also brought my vegetables with me to school. And one last thing is to drink lots of water so you will get the feeling of being full. Every time I think of a cigarette I take a sip of my water.

Last but not leasttttt is will power, I WANT TO QUIT PERIOD!
