Today I learned that Georgia is favored over Auburn in the football game this weekend.
I am displeased.

PP: My shoes. Asics are good shoes, but they are intended for running, not general wear when it's raining. My socks were wet all day today.

I admit that while sci-fi shooters are fun, I think the best are modern war shooters like Battlefield 2 and Call of Duty 4.

AP: Finally finding someone with whom I can talk about my problems. She's my friend's sister (one of my friends, as well) and I really like talking to her. I don't really have anyone at my own school I can talk about, and the ones I could talk with have their own problems to worry about. But I can really talk to this girl about anything.

AP: Made the final decision to quit using tobacco. I'll just have to accept the fact that I'm a goody-goody and keep telling myself that my friends aren't my friends because I have a hundred and one bad habits. They're my friends because they like me, and I like them.

AP #2: Deciding to get out of it before I became addicted to nicotine, which'll make it a hundred times easier.

PP: Internet being really gay. Actually, it isn't my internet. According to my router and internet settings, my connection is fine. But for some reason, pages are loading really slow and for an hour, they wouldn't load at all. It kept giving me the "this website is taking too long to respond" crap.

That was the other name for it! Cheers, I knew there was something, and it was bugging me.

There's a difference. Chewing tobacco is like gum. You actually chew on it and spit the juice. In The Sandlot when the kids are at the amusement park, and one of them pulls out the Big Chief? That was chewing tobacco.
Dip is like chewing tobacco shredded and put in a can. You don't chew it, you just put it in your lip and let it sit there. Essentially the same effect, just a little less involved. I think chewing tobacco may have less additives and stuff.

Finding someone who actually does chewing tobacco is pretty rare. I admit, I used to not know the difference, but there is one, insignificant as it is.

I admit that the image of a bunch of greasers attacking my mouth with switchblades is almost enough to make me quit. Because that's essentially what happens.

But, y'know, less tiny men with tinier weapons.

Yeah, I know what snus is. About the only snus sold down here is Camel snus stuff. Never tried it, but heard it's really good.

I've wanted to try it. I've read that true Swedish snus hasn't been linked to cancer, and that it isn't even required to have the 'this product can cause cancer' sticker on it, only 'this product can adversely affect your health.'

But, of course, trying to quit tobacco doesn't mean I can go to that stuff.

God, FML.

As for spitting, if I have to use a bottle, I don't do it in front of people. I try to make my spitting inconspicuous, like go off somewhere, and I don't do like some of my friends do and jam a pinch in my front lip. Most of the time you can't even tell I have one in except my speech is a little slurred.

But I'm just making excuses now.

I lol'd at the captain thing, by the way. I think it's kinda funny.

All mascosts are furries, fun fact.

Mike the Tiger (LSU's mascot) is NOT a furry.
He's a real tiger. He's a real tiger who can really eat you alive.

Nova (War Eagle, one of Auburn's mascots) is NOT furry.
She's a real bald eagle. She's a real bald eagle who can really fuck your shit up.

Uga (Georgia's retarded mascot) is NOT furry.
He's a real bulldog. He's a real bulldog who is really ugly.

I admit that I am A) ashamed of that but B) proud to know someone learned something today because of me and my vices.

It's a Southern thang.

AP: Talking out my problems with two different friends--one of whom is a girl lives in Atlanta, the other being a guy who knows the girl I'm having a problem with. It made me feel so much better. They both encouraged me to just tell her how I feel and that, if I don't, I may never know if she feels the same way.

I'd like to think that, come Monday, I'll have the guts to tell her.

Ultimately, pretty much anything that is unhealthy for you is completely and entirely pointless. Unhealthy fast foods? Our bodies are perfectly capable of being sustained by healthy vegetables and lean meats. Caffeine? About the only useful thing about caffeine is as a pain reliever in migraine medicine. Sugary drinks? There's plenty of water. Alcohol? Again, water. Emerging research shows that the damage some people receive from alcohol--even small amounts--outweighs the benefits. Television? Go outside and play.

PP: Knowing what's bad for me, but still doing it. And I don't just mean tobacco.

True dat.
I never understood smoking, what's so attractive about sticking a paper tube stuffed with a dead plant amongst tons of chemicals in your mouth?

I don't smoke. I dip. I blame the redneck in me. After all, I do live in Georgia.
Smokers say dipping is more disgusting, those who do smokeless tobacco say smoking is worse.
I know they're both disgusting habits, and I could quit if I wanted to. What I thought was nicotine withdrawal, I realized later, turned out to be just a caffeine crash. I thought it was withdrawal because I was REALLY angry and that never happens when I crash on caffeine. It was weird.

Anyway, I do it because it relaxes me. It's my dirty little secret and that makes me feel good, I don't know why. And I know the damage smokeless tobacco can do, which is why I don't plan on doing it forever. I have a friend who has done it since the 5th grade (he's a 10th grader now) and he has serious gum loss.

But tonight, this girl who is a heavy smoker started giving me some long lecture about how disgusting dip is, that she'd never kiss someone who had a pinch in, et cetera. And I KNOW how bad it is. She acts like she knows all about my habit. I do it three times a week, maybe four, normally skipping weeks so my lips and gums don't hurt. I've gone through two cans since July, where some people can do that in a week.

And shit, I wouldn't kiss someone who had a pinch in, either! I wouldn't kiss someone if I had one in, or if I hadn't brushed my teeth since I last had one. It's gross!

It's just stupid and irritating. My personal opinion is that smoking is, by far, more disgusting. When you smoke, you smell like an ash tray, your teeth turn yellow and black and all those other disgusting colors, your clothes, hair, and skin smell terrible and turn colors, and you cough like you've been in a coal mine for three years. There's tar in your lungs, you can't breathe, and your stamina suffers big time, and you're more susceptible to respiratory diseases.

I'm not saying dip is 'safer' or 'less gross.' It's still disgusting and a dangerous habit. But it mainly affects your mouth. It hasn't begun to visually damage me yet. It's personal preference as to whether I'd rather lose my teeth and jaw or my lungs and throat.

I know I should quit. But I don't want to. Not that I can't, I just don't want to. Not yet.

PP: Being lectured about my tobacco use by a girl who smokes.

I find that EXTREMELY hypocritical.
