It's not the first time I've had alcohol since I quit but it's the first time I've had a proper drinking night in the pub. I had a night out with some friends I haven't seen for a couple of months and ended up getting really very tipsy (well actually - drunk is a better description) and I didn't give ciggies a single thought. I had been worried that when I really let my hair down on a night out I would end up throwing my resolve aside... but no... it never even entered my head. What's more... my hangover was over as soon as the headache went... usually I'd spend the whole day recovering but I have felt absolutely fine. Also, didn't have that nasty mouth I'd normally wake up with when I had drank alot and smoked (like something had died in there), which is a big bonus.
One thing I will say though... I drank twice as fast as I normally would... but that may have just been high spirits.
Still waiting on tenterhooks in case I experience the challenges that others have talked about in the third month.
