No Smoking Day

A first!

Morning everyone,

Thought I'd share a new experience with you that I had on Saturday night...

I'd been to a party and was a bit tipsy (didn't smoke though despite the fact that half the guests kept disappearing outside - now I know what it feels like to be on the other side), but I digress. Whilst wobbling my way home a bloke shouted across the road 'Hey, have you got a light?', to which I replied 'No! I don't smoke!' How cool was that! I felt quite chuffed with myself!

Little things eh, they do make a difference.

Day 28 and still going... Well done to all the MMQ Crew and everyone else.

Hiya TT,

A good feeling ain't it. I also like the look on the faces of some of my friends (mostly the ones who still smoke!) when I say No to the opportunity for a fag - a mixture of admiration (i think) envy (possibly) and guilt (I'm pretty sure!). It all makes me feel positive and more determined to stay strong and stay clean.

4 weeks is excellent - well done you.

Thanks everyone!

Yes, I worried about the drinking thing too, but was determined not to weaken, even under the influence! My friend said to me before we went out, 'oh, don't worry if you have one, it's not the end of the world' which made me a bit cross and touched my stubborn streak and I thought bu@@er that! I've come this far I will not smoke! And it worked!

To be honest the worst thing was being left inside whilst everyone else went outside, you do feel like you're missing something, but the up side was that when they came in again they stank! Ha!

The rule is if you go out for a few drinks don't go outside! Simples!

CJM and Jewls - well done on you Day 9, brilliant!
