I had made several promises to myself that I would get back into the habit of writing more frequently and so far, it hasn’t happened. I think that part of the reason is that I have been busy running amuck in World of Warcraft and playing a bunch of different alts at different levels – not accomplishing a whole lot other than killing time and leveling as I do it.
I had made a promise to myself that 2016 would be the year that I quit smoking tobacco and so far, it does seem to be working out. That could explain why I get so buried in-game and rarely get distracted from it. It hasn’t been easy, however, it has been a little bit over a month now since I had my last cigarette and I will admit that I do feel somewhat better although the craving is still there with that first cup of coffee and right after I have had a good meal. Ah well, at least I don’t have that expense to add to my financial concerns any longer. I do vape, so, I’m still getting some nicotine in the system so that I don’t “short out” too quickly. One thing about doing the vaping is that there are so many flavors and smells that it is kind of entertaining at the same time. I keep cutting down on the nicotine and eventually I hope to be completely away from that evil demon. I have to say that I do feel better physically and mentally after this month away from the tobacco – makes you really wonder what is in cigarettes these days.
I’m still playing the game my way and still enjoying it for the most part. I don’t know that I will ever get flying in Draenor at the rate that I am going, however, I’m still plodding along and it seems to be working out okay. I have multiple 100s running amuck in Tanaan, so, I may accidently meet all of the requirements with the reputations there one of these days. The only thing that seems to be holding me back are the reputations and I can only handle so much of the Jungle before I have to take a break from it and get on an alt somewhere else.
I have done all of the pre-ordering of Legion that I am planning on doing and actually ended up with an invitation to try out the Alpha. I’ve only logged into it a couple of times and I like what I see so far, however, I have told myself that I am not going to spend as much time there like I did with WoD and get burned out on it before it is even released. No, I don’t like some of the changes, however, it’s not finished yet, so, I’m sure that things will shift about quite a bit more.
Well, wish me luck in staying off the tobacco and starting to write a bit more frequently and I’ll see you all in-game.
