First day out Smokefree


Yesterday was the first "Day out" of the year without a fag. It seemed strange asking the coach driver to stop the other side of the bridge for people to use the toilets, when before I wasn't bothered about the toilets, it was the last chance to get a quick couple of fags down my neck before the off again. Done it so many times before, I thought about twenty times yesterday when I would definitely have been smoking, queer, isn't it, smoke a lot more to make up for the short spells when unable to smoke. All went well though so I didn't get any little tests, apart from locking one chap in the centre and getting on our merry way before someone noticed he was missing, never mind, dried his eyes, I nearly peed myself laughing and all was well.

Hi David

Can certainly relate to the smoking a lot before going on a trip. I remember so well smoking a lot before going into an airport, holding back from going into departures, then having no problem going without. It's all so crazy but I did it every time even although I knew I would be fine once I was in.


Glad all went well and you didn't get tested..... it's a matter of getting as many situations while not smoking under our belt.... I have a vacation coming up soon as well.... used to smoke like mad and I wonder how many reminders I will get :D You did great!!!

it's a matter of getting as many situations while not smoking under our belt.

Like little exams don't you think Bella, each time ,we go that little bit farther, and get a little stronger each time. Never been at an airport since the no smoking thing Jackie, I wasn't the bravest of flyers till I'd poured half a bottle of gin down my neck as we waited to board. David
