I have just come back from my first abroad holiday since I quit smoking. Ive been on a couple of british holidays but that was about it. I hadnt thought of the fags for quite a while but it really hit me when I got on holiday, people were smoking everywhere and I encountered one of those times when that nic demon just creeps up on you.
nearly nine months smoke free and I managed those feelings like a trouper, fag after sunbathing, fag with afternoon beer. I stamped all that right out of my mind and also encountered stinky hair and clothes after being in a smoke filled bar, soggy fag stumps on the beach and by the end of the holiday even the sight of a ciggie was enough to make me heave.
I used to see on peoples signitures not one puff and took that on myself, no matter how hard it is, never, ever again not a single puff and I am really very proud to say that I have stuck to that.
I am now a confident non smoker and wanted to post cos I was very proud at how I managed those triggers, there might be more to come at some point but Im never going to let my guard down.
Not a single puff!!!
