  • well said Jan, there but for the grace of... etc. though we have all fought hard to get as far as we have, we are lucky to have found that initial strength to leave the herd.

    having said that, as a smoker i remember that i never really gave two hoots about what ex-smokers and none-smokers said about me! the power of the drug i suppose :)

  • Thoughts are nothing, we all have them. I think it's a shame when I see people smoke, but that's because all I see now are people willing to face the cold to do something so potentially dangerous!

    When I see youngsters smoking I feel devastated :( they've just signed themselves up to a life of addiction whilst trying to convince themselves they do it because they love it/want to etc - what a crying shame!

    You didn't go out and start sytematically punching them one by one in the face so I think you're alright.

  • I kind of *make* myself think that when I see people smoking. I'm like, brainwashing myself to hate the habit, training myself to be repulsed so that I don't look at them and feel jealous.

    As long as you don't go round criticising smokers to their faces, you're entitled to think what you like!

    Well done on such a long, strong quit jans x

    I do it too, 7 months 1 week 1 day quit smoking, at first i though my thoughts were just a novelty because i had managed to quit and haha they the've not, but i still have them, in truth it is a disgusting smelly habit i just wasn't aware of it before.
