Well, we're into full holiday mode: Christmas, Hanukkah and New Years celebrations. My little experiment with abstaining from alcohol lasted about 10 days with no effect whatsoever. In all fairness, it might not have been enough time but I honestly didn't feel any different in regards to olfaction.
So now that it's the holiday season and people have been cooking everywhere, it's a little depressing to say the least when you can't smell anything from hanukkah latkes to roast beef. So screw it, I'm going to drink if I want. Hell, even when I could smell, drinking always dulled it.
I'm now wondering if the cigars I smoke have an effect on all of this so I think after this is all over, I'll try laying off of those and see how it goes. I guess I'm still hoping that there is ONE THING I can do that will change all of this.
In the meantime, have a great holiday season. May 2007 bring full olfaction back to those who don't have it!!
