Hi all, have just returned from a week in Egypt. I was aware that there would be alot of smoking over there before we went and as a result I fretted and worried before the holiday about how I would cope ! when we got there- simples do the same as over here !! spent alot of time fretting over nothing!
We kept ourselves really busy seeing all the sites, up at 6 am then early to bed, there was alcohol available in our hotels but we didnt go mad as it was quite expensive so although we had to sit in a smoky bar sometimes we managed ok.
But what a country for smoking ! Everybody smokes ! there are bars where you sit and have sheesha pipes- bubble pipes and someone has come up with the cunning plan to flavour the tobacco with fruity flavours- strwaberry etc so you see young girls puffing away and the air smells lovely !! I didnt asl how much fags cost but would reckon them to be really cheap to buy.
So ,I know we all worry about the holiday trigger in advance and cant imagine how we will enjoy a holiday without a ciggy with our glass of wine on the sunlounger but trust me its no different from the quit here at home- occasional wants but manageable. ( we spent afternoons somedays round the pool ).
