Holiday

Hi everybody, well, back from my holiday in Portugal, and on day 25 of no smoking. I was so glad I DIDN'T smoke (eg. outside airport, on plane, outside bars etc) One night had a few drinks and could really have had a cig...... but I Didn't. You could smoke in certain bars, and in one part of a bar in the hotel, not like back home. I was really surprised how many smokers there were! but glad I wasn't one of them, the place stunk and so did my clothes after. I am so proud of myself never ever thought I'd get this far after smoking over 30 years. x Bet.

Well done you.

In the past I have always used the excuse of saying 'it can't be a holiday' or 'it can't be a Birthday' UNLESS you can have a cigarette. Like you'd be missing out on something good if you weren't smoking.

You are proof that you can have a good time/holiday etc being smoke free!:)

Hey bet, well done - lots of us worry about the first smoke free holiday. Good to know it can be done even relatively early in the quit.

Congratulations, and stick with it!
