Tonight was the hugh test. I stopped smoking on Monday but tonight I went out, as we usually do down to the pub and onto the club. I was very conscious of the fact that I had quit smoking and knew that this was the bench test. I was drinking and was well aware that desire to smoke was strong.
My friends were very supportive and went out of their way to not expose me to their smoke. This was the first time in years that I actually became aware for the smell of smoke, as my friends went outside and came back inside, the smell was really bad. I would not dare to comment on this to them but it brought home to me how noticeable smokers were.
Anyway I went for a night out, didn’t smoke and to date have been smoke free for five days. I certainly would not declare myself a non smoker but I made it though the evening, and enjoyed it without the aid of a cigarette.
If I can do this so can this so can anybody else who is finding it difficult to stop, come on guys give it up.
