Day 25 - Dry Throat, Smoking, And Popping



I used to smoke. I started when I was thirteen. Crazy, I know. And it's not like I grew up in a broken home. I quit last year when I realized I'd been smoking way too much. It had kind of gotten out of control.

Now, I was buying some lottery tickets earlier today and I don't really know why, but I got myself a pack of coconut cigarillos. Later on after work I went to a small get-together and smoked three of them. They were actually pretty nice, but they kind of dried out my mouth and throat. Some people's throats get really dry on Accutane. I wonder if they're smokers. I also took a puff of a friend's cigarette but it was just nasty. I think that right there says a lot about cigarettes. I don't plan on making a habit of this or anything. Smoking is just bad.

I also popped two pustules I had so people wouldn't have to look at nasty ass shit on my face. What I did was I took the tiniest needle I could find, disinfected it with some rubbing alcohol, and just stuck it into the pustules. I didn't squeeze them or anything. I just gently pressed down on them with a paper towel. And guess what? It worked great. No mess, no blood, no irritation, no redness, no nothing! And the pus was gone. I know you're not supposed to pop any pimples on Accutane, but this hardly counts.
