I'm so so sorry maybe i should not be saying this as i could be chastised as a hypocrite - but today i got no end of pleasure looking through the window at work and seeing all my colleagues huddled under a single umbrella, shivering, moaning about the weather and puffing on cancer sticks. Was chuckling to myself all day today thinking about them coming back in the office soaked and really hope the weather is crap tomorrow so it can cheer me up again at breaks. Maybe i'm being nasty but ive had to put up with the same thing for
years now. Seems crazy now standing in horrid weather just to smoke - INSANITY - what were we thinking????:confused:
90% of people at work smoke so the building is pretty empty at dinner so i am missing out on the gossip and social side of work abit but if that is what i have to be a non smoker so be it!!! PLus my main manager is a non smoker so i am getting browny points talking to him more on breaks!!
I dont know if anyone else has noticed this but work is alot less stressful now - cant decide if it's because im not subjected to all office politics, redundancy rumours and bitching that goes on at break, Or if i am just coping with stress alot better cos feeling in control more now that ive taken charge of my life and stop smoking.
First day back at work after 9 days off and not smoking at work is alot easier than at home - i simply do not go outside at breaks, then no chance of smoking.
feeling very good today - the days will fly by now i'm back at work. Into week 3 group tomorrow!!!
