No Smoking Day

1 day til I'm in week THREE !!

Day 14 today so tomorrow I will be in week 3 (as I'v not quite completed day 14 yet),

Not feeling so lousy and headache is much better.

I'm of for my first night out tonight with my work pals as I changed jobs last week and so it's my leaving meal. Most of my nurse colleagues actually smoke believe it or not, and I know already this is going to be very challenging, not because I want one and not because I fancy one at all, but it's back to that feeling I had last week at my new job when colleagues popped out for a fag and I felt abnormal and that I was missing out from being part of the group kind of thing.

I know it sounds almost mad considering I don't want a fag but the old cliche 'oh go on Dee one won't hurt' etc etc is something I have actually heard many times in the past when we used to niop to the fag corner (to other colleagues who had given up). I am confident I can have my meal and one glass of wine, 2 at the most, and not crave whatsoever but I'm not very good under pressure or saying no to anyone, it's one of my weaknesses and this is a concern for me.

I will post tomorrow in my week 3, my word how did I ever get here with such ease as well, Marg and Linda S you were my first 2 to welcome me and I can't believe I am able to actually still be part of the forum, it's excellent even if i say so myself.

Keep strong everyone else and keep going, I'l try to post some comments and encouragement on your posts but am playing for time a bit at present xx
