Hey everyone - hope you all had a good smoke-free weekend!
I went to the hen-day on Saturday - 12 hours of drinking and I did not smoke - and not only that, didn't really want to either. I had one moment when I thought I would ask for a drag of a cigarette but then asked myself if I really wanted to inhale some arsenic, cyanide and god knows what else - and promptly felt sorry for the girl who was smoking!
And for the first time since I gave up, I felt really proud of myself - there were girls there who remembered how much I would smoke whilst drinking and couldn't believe that I wasn't - such a good feeling! I think we sometimes forget just what we have achieved getting this far!
So yes - had a bit of a nasty hangover but you know what - it was one of the best hangovers I've ever had - knowing that I didn't smoke the night before. And for the first time I feel I might just be able to do this...but trying not to be over-confident so it's back to one day at a time!
It is so worth it to stay strong and to remember that we can beat those nasty little white things...
