Well today was my first time out with friends drinking, I was a little worried about this today. Not that I would have one but the thought/panic I would need one as fags and drink go together.
Well I decided at the bar not get my usual pint of larger as I didn't think I was ready for that yet, as years ago when I tried to stop smoking larger made me want a fag all the more because it didn't taste right without a fag!
So I had a pint of John smiths shandy and got a pint of soda water with ice cubes. My reasoning the shandy was nice but the ice cubes if I got a craving would act like a ice pop.
I need not have worried I enjoyed a great afternoon and night with friends both smokers and non smokers. Had 6 pints and not once did I fancy a fag! So proud of myself 5 weeks as a non smoker and I did not want a fag with a drink. The best bit, I do not feel sickly, my mouth tastes nice, I do not feel dizzy, I do not feel like crap and the reason why it's because I don't smoke!
