Hi everyone. I am now back in London after two weeks holiday. Firstly I am very pleased to report that I did not have a single cigarette. This had probably been the first holiday in 20 years when I didn't smoke.
As a result I am now successfully on day 108!!
However what concerned me is I almost slipped up. On the final Saturday I admittedly had a few drinks too many and I sudden got the urge to smoke. And what did I do about it? I bought a pack of 20!! I then even opened the pack and said to myself one night off from quit will be ok.
I then held the pack in my hand for about 30 minutes. In the end I came to my senses. Part of it was down to fact I didn't want to ruin a 100 day plus quit. Secondly I didn't want to post on here saying I let myself down and smoked.
I am really pleased I didn't smoke but part of my had alarms bells. Why after such a long period did I feel the sudden urge? I have read other posts on here of people having cravings again after three months or do. I guess I can put it down partly to being on a holiday and being drunk that night.
Now I am back in London, my cravings have declined again and I am back in my routine again. As I say I am so glad I had a smoke free holiday and was able to be strong during that 30 minute moment of madness!
