  • I've not had to face a smokey bar yet, But i'm shortly going to Brussels on business and some of the bars over there still allow smoking and I'll also be going to Germany before the year is out on business again, so I feel your apprehension.

    I'm sure you will be fine just keep it in the front of your mind that you don't want to smoke and you don't want to go through the first few days of quitting again and I'm sure you will be OK.

    Look on the smokers with pity rather than envy and you'll be fine.

  • hello no smoking world

    emm yes, well so far what i have done is pretty much avoided all people that are smoking, i think will be harder to do, Find myself sometimes staring at smokers lol...a bit freaky

    but do feel I have turned a corner now...bringing my

    'Take it one day at a time' Calendar

    every little bit helps

  • You can do it, don't see it as a problem to face, see it as a positive action on your part, don't go looking for trouble. The stink that must be in those bars might be enough to put you off too.

    You asked about cold symptoms, yes all of that can be side effects. If you read some of the websites in our signatures you will find lots of answers to your questions about nicotine addiction or use the search facility at the top of the page. Off course you can come on here and just ask, someone will help you out.

    Stay positive look forward to your break and enjoy your stay, you can do it.

  • Aaaargh I forgot about that - I'm off to Munich next week!

    (Germany must be the place to be at the moment!)

    We'll just have to stay strong - it was a smoky pub that was my downfall in my last quit (before the smoking ban in this country) - but I should be OK this time as I've quit for twice as long already. I've been in outdoor smoking areas this time too and been ok!
