Tempted when drinking alcohol????

Tempted when drinking alcohol????

Me too, sometimes anyway, but i've always held firm and said no.

However, last night I was talking to a bloke who had quit for 6 months, and he was telling me he thought he had a handle on it, and was strong enough to smoke only when he had a drink.

He started by having one or two with a beer, and guess what?

Your right, before long, he was back on it full time!

Just thought id share this story in case your ever tempted to have one with a drink after a long quit!

Dead right amsie. It's happened to a lot of people, think they'll be ok with one or two, doesn't work though. One is too many and a thousand not enough. If just started a quit, a smoke will seem a better idea the more the booze flows. If that is the case, don't go overboard with the drinking till you've got the quit sussed out. Good warning amsie.

Thanks for the warning. Sadly I learnt that lesson the hard way the last time I quit smoking, won't go down that route again. :o
