Yes I gave up 12years ago but still have dreams about smoking. I don't crave them IRL though. When I watch Mad men nowadays it makes me feel a bit nauseous.

I'm now on my third real attempt at quitting smoking. The first time, I quit for maybe 2 or 3 months, the second time I quit for nearly two years, and this time I'm at about two months so far and going strong. I'm pretty sure it'll stick this time, since I've reached an age where I just think that I absolutely can't go back to smoking unless I want to royally screw my health beyond repair. Granted, the damage is already done.

That said, I still miss smoking every day. Stupid, gross cigarettes.

That's a shame. I have zero interest in most of the cookie cutter travel blogs that foreigners in Korea love to write, but I looked forward to your updates.

Breaking My Pencils

Honestly, you should keep writing for yourself. Not sure if you find it therapeutic or anything, but many writers do.

Aside from that, most writers don't make bank, and a lot of talented folks let frustration kill their motivations. Keep in mind that most successful writers (from the most talented of us all the way down to the bottom-of-the-barrel types) struggled for many years before anything of theirs began to pay off. If you're looking to make some income from this, keep striving, find ways to spread your work, work on your style, try to get your name out there on publishing sites, and keep posting. Over time and with enough persistence and tenacity, something will eventually give you a break. 

If you don't get any enjoyment out of writing simply for the sake of it, I understand moving on. But if you're just frustrated and have lost confidence, don't give up.

Black-On-Black Crime

http://filthy-beast.blogspot.com/2018/09/black-on-black-crime.html

I hear you on the death getting to be a bit much. It's one reason I'm here.

Before I left, in my major, I had three classmates get killed- one murdered by her mother, one killed in Iraq, and one killed in an accident, plus we had a really high-profile murder at my university. Then there was a murder close to my family.

Where I used to work, it's almost like clockwork every year that I'll get an email or facebook message that so-and-so is dead or in prison.

The fact that ODs and murders here amongst people you know tend to be rather infrequent, it makes things a little better. Fortunately no one I know here has bought it that didn't die of old age (knock on wood).

I changed my mind. I'm going to restart the blog. Why? I had no idea that a lot of people actually liked it. So what's a boy to do?  Not everything is about success or money. I'll begin Volume II of my China adventure within the next week.

Thanks for the support, and sorry for the drama.

Much Ruv.

Came here to post something similar, but Chinguetti said it better than I could have.

I've always liked his blogs. Remember, I once did a parody of his Eating Dog in Korea one.

I'm so thankful to hear this... I found it a bit depressing to think that you were giving up on your blog. What would I do for entertainment on those long afternoons with minimal work to get done? I find solace in your stories. Thanks for the hard work, and keep it up! I know eventually I'll pick up your books, but right now I'm working on Stephen King's "It" and it'll probably take me a bit.
