So this evening I was meant to be out with a couple of mates, and I was the (self) nominated driver.....still safer to avoid alcohol when with smokers, at least for me.
Lovely evening, warm enough to sit outside a nice pub near the canal much to the delight of my smoking friends. I lasted one drink before I insisted on driving us all home again, overcome with an absolute overwhelming feeling that I'm missing out, am sad and miserable and feel like progress remains painfully slow and tortuous........I was also not particularly popular!
In the real world everyone I know thinks I have been successfully quit since Jan 5th so I just look like a grumpy old sod - all my failures, flops and flounces have been saved for here :eek:
Total respect for those of you quitting whilst living with smokers, I remain so far away from being either neutral to, or disgusted by the habit I am pretty sure I couldn't do it
I will just have to immerse myself in self-pity, and a hot bath!
