So over the past few weeks I have been running in to people that will tell me that they have quit smoking, but in fact I know that they have been smoking. How much? I don't know, but definitely occasionally. On the outside I say things like "Oh thats good, you're doing great" and "it really is much better being a non-smoker" or "quitting smoking is a long and hard process, that's different for everyone", but on the inside I just want to correct the **** out of them, and tell them it doesn't count. I feel like I only told people I quit when I wasn't smoking, then shamefully told them I was back to smoking when I was smoking. But maybe not, maybe I was one of these people that was only fooling myself on previous quits. I really am very tolerant of smokers, and if people want to smoke, do it. I don't care. I don't want to preach to people, but pseudo quitters just rub me the wrong way.
Anyone else have these sort of experiences?
