Going to have to try and stay strong

friends birthday tonight, so we are all going to town...there is only me that will be a non-smoker.

What would you do when everyone goes for a puff? go out with them? stay on my own inside? i dont want to feel like im missing out by staying on my loansome inside (not missing out on cigs but company) but i also dont want to be tempted by going outside.

With any luck i might meet someone to have a chat with who doesn't smoke while my friends are puffing away.

  • I would say if you feel in any way tempted, then don't go out with them while they smoke. Different strokes for different folks.

    Some people prefer to go out with their smoking friends and chat, using the fact that their friends are smoking as an act of defiance (i.e. they are facing the demon). Others prefer to not to go out in such situations because they may feel too tempted (i.e. they are avoiding the demon). Either way is fine, depending on how you feel.
