My niece's birthday

We went to my niece's 2nd birthday party yesterday afternoon, my first such occasion as a non-smoker. None of the guests were smokers.

It was so nice spending quality time with her and my kids! - we spent hours there. In the past, I would have spent more time outside smoking than anything else, and I now realize we always used to leave early from such events so that I could get home and "relax" with a fag in the man cave (tool shed). How sad is that, I feel quite ashamed of how I used to be.

Loving the new me :D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D

  • Wow, Andy, that's two amazing (and challenging) milestones you've successfully negotiated this weekend! :) Double congratulations to you mate.

    Bet you were feeling a bit the worse for wear at your niece's do weren't you?

    Hope your hangover has abated now. :)

    Very true, the hangover was ever present - But I was able to put on a brave face and stuck with drinking juice then I started to become human again by late afternoon.

    Still rather proud of my first smoking free hangover, as nasty as it was :D:D:D

  • Well done Andy, amazing how little we cared about those around us when we smoked, I can remember cheerfully offering some of my colleagues a lift to our xmas do a couple of years back, considerately making them all wait whilst I had a cig before leaving the office then forcing my toxic after cig whiff on them - those were the days :eek:

  • Well done! You've made it through a big weekend and proved that you can do it. I bet you feel great x

  • I'm with you on that one Andy, smokers miss out on loads and never really relax, which you don't realise until you stop. So pleased you are still here and still positive :)
