Don't Be a Summer Caver!!!!

In view of as number of recent posts regarding thoughts of smoking i think we ALL need a wee reminder that summer has arrived.

So What!!! i hear you say.

Well for all of us quitters who have quit since Autumn/ Winter etc. none of us have had to face all of the "Summer Triggers" yet.

A bottle of beer or a glass of wine in the garden.

Outside the pub in the sun.

ON HOLIDAY, a major smoking time for many. (Relaxing by the pool, cheap duty free, smoking INDOORS in many restaurants etc. etc etc)

This is a major time for CAVING! as we have unfortunately already seen.

Summer is possibly one of the worst times for us so BE ON YOUR GUARD and be ready for the triggers.

And remember that old Glaswegian phrase when you think "i'll just have one puff"

D.B.S.F.S.

Dont Be So F£$%ing Stupid!!!!

You know it makes sense ;)!

    This is what I've missed, amongst other things, welcome back again John.xx

  • Afternoon all

    Now i have just pm'd 2 people and said wont be back yet then i read this thread so just poppin in to say that i have just been to spain for a well deserved w/e break :p and last time there i smoked like a chimney, the cigs are cheap, and you can smoke anywhere - still the same, felt very odd sitting on the patio not smokin but it soon passed.

    As usual i had a few puffs whilst drinking - not because i wanted them just because i could ( i KNOW !!! dont shout at me) but i still wont go back to it, the other danger is that as so many resteraunts are open air u dont even smell it, just the tempting whafts of Garlic and cooking...............i wanna go back:( so pleeeaaaassse listen to johnnny boy it is very temptin - be careful out there mwahxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

  • REALLY lovely to have you back Jojo.

    Glad you had a great time

    (I'm pretending not to have read about the "little puffs";):p

  • great to see you back Jo:D

    i could do with a good weekend away! (cword wont take me though !)

  • Hi John, l couldn't agree more. :(The "Summer" triggers have for me, been at times quite difficult to overcome. Maybe it's because during the Winter months, we had only just given up, and consequently we were more on our guard. :confused: Nice to see you back by the way. :D

    P.S. l am also pretending that l haven't read about the "little puffs" Jojo. ;)

    Love Josie XXX

  • Well I'm NOT pretending that i didn't see Jojo's "little puffs" ;) :D

    But, if Jojo feels she can control them then fair enough. There are others on here who CAN'T control their little puffs and i am more worried about them to be honest. Jojo seems to have her puffs well sussed.....

    G.O.B. get yerself down to a gym just now and by the time winter comes you will feel so fit and healthy, smoking will be the last thing on your mind. :D

    Josie, i totally agree with this.

  • I was thinking about this as I am still encountering triggers (the latest was in relation to a work do I had to attend last week - I felt the hit after the speeches). I expect those to continue throughout the year to be honest - I was a keen smoker on the snow slopes and what about smoking for NYE...

    Good tips and a great reminder.

    PS - glad to see you both back

  • Am I the only weirdo who loves being a non smoker / ex smoker / recovering drug addict?? I can't wait to go on holiday because I won't have to panic at the airport if there is a delay etc etc (the joys of being a smoker)

    Bring it on summer!! (when someone finds out how to switch the rain off)

    At the moment my quit is good i'm just dreaming about smoking too much. But when i wake up i feel crap for about five seconds and then realise it was a dream. This happens every other night. *wonders when it will stop*

    It's so good to have John and his camp posts back LOL :p

  • Oh Yay! Everyone is back and even Jan has a picture of a farting cat to mark the occasion! sweet!!!! :D:D:D

  • Am I the only weirdo who loves being a non smoker / ex smoker / recovering drug addict?? I can't wait to go on holiday because I won't have to panic at the airport if there is a delay etc etc (the joys of being a smoker)

    No, your not alone, i'm like that too. I love it actually!

  • Thank God because everyone worries that they 'might' find it hard to go here and do this ..... if you think you will find it difficult then you probably will. I sat out drinking in the garden last Friday afternoon coz it was sunny and hot (chavvy I know lol) and it flickered through my mind that 'last time' I did something like that I had been a smoker but I didn't miss the stinkin things at all, I enjoyed it more because the wind didn't keep blowing my lighter out etc etc

    I think if you get whipped into a frenzy then your worst nightmares come true. You just have to forget about it. Next time I go on holiday my old friend the cigarette won't b coming with me or returning with me either. I can spend money on real duty free instead of stocking up on fags so i can kill myself for less!
