New experience

Today I'm going to Cairo (business travel)... it's the first time since I packed up and I'm looking forward not to smoke 2 or 3 fags before checking in, not being grumpy once in Amsterdam (no smoking airport) because I NEED a fag and arriving in Cairo, composed and not rushing out to have a smoke... it's going to be a whole new experience :)

it seems I've been sailing through my quit lately and don't even think of myself as an ex smoker... at 1 Champix per day (for the past couple of weeks) I thought I might struggle but it's been ok. My quitting the ex is a lot harder than this... then again the fags aren't pursuing me with promises!! lol

Enjoy Cairo - and the pleasures of a flight where the main concern isn't how and where to fit in the next cigarette.

I can still remember the horrors of one particular trans-Atlantic flight which seemed to be delayed forever with no chance of a cigarette, then the actual flight took much longer than scheduled. It was a complete nightmare under any circumstances, but while craving for a cigarette as well was horrendous.

Enjoy the freedom to enjoy the flight

Enjoy your smoke free trip to Cairo even though it is business I'm sure you'll find a little time for some pleasure as well
