I have a ton of bad habits I wish I didn’t have. It’s tough to decide which one I would wish away if I had the opportunity to.
I asked my boyfriend what he thought my worst habit was and he said: how I’m constantly spitting and I’d have to agree. I am disgusting. I know!
In the beginning of 2016, I had made a resolution to quit smoking cigarettes. It lasted until December so I was actually really close. But close doesn’t cut it.
Quitting cigarettes causes your phlegm to loosen up. When I quit my phlegm was loosening up and it would constantly come up in big brown and black lougies. It hasn’t stopped happening even though I started smoking again — I think it’s gotten worse. (???)
Think of me like a chronic tobacco chewer. Except I don’t chew. Never have. That’s how often I need to spit. I even have a bottle to spit in on my bedside table.
I feel like I can’t breathe in the morning because there’s so much phlegm backed up in my throat, I often choke and cough it up and while I’m smoking cigarettes my mouth gets watery and I don’t like to swallow that spit because it doesn’t taste very good.
Okay, okay…I’ll stop. I already know; I’m so gross. I don’t know if this super bad habit of mine is normal or something I could/should fix somehow but it’s definitely the one bad habit I have that I’d wish away if I could.
