No Smoking Day

Winner winner chicken dinner!

Well, I'm back from five days staying in a resort hotel/casino in Atlantic City, and I didn't smoke. Not once.

Was I tempted? Sure, plenty of times. In the casino, where it is legal to smoke, I caught a few urges, but they were minor.

The biggest challenge was when I found myself in the midst of a personal issue with a close friend, and I was really depressed, discouraged and down.

Finding myself alone that night, I really, really struggled with the thought of letting myself have a smoke.

I knew it would be stupid; I knew I'd be playing with fire; and I knew that there's no such thing (for me) as "just one."

As bad as I was feeling about the personal issue, I just couldn't add to my woes by destroying my quit. I've come too far.

So I just grit my teeth and "will-powered" myself through it, and I made it to the other side.

To review,

I just spent four nights, and almost five full days, in a smoky casino - and I didn't smoke. :)
