Proud as punch :) :)

Ok so I have to tell someone, and it has to be my forum friends cos you will "get it"..... Last night was curry night with the girls, there was 10 of us, 4 were non smokers (inc me) good odds so far, I'm not on my own ;) , we meet for a beer sat outside everyone's chuffing away and I didn't crave or even remotely want one... I will admit the smell was quite appealing but in a nostalgic way rather than a cravey way, anyway we had our meal which was lovely, and then found a cocktail bar where they were 2 for 1 so..... ( and this is the bit I'm proud of) after 2 Long Island ice teas, 2 bellinis and 2 amaretto sours ( so yes I'm a bit pished) the girls go out (the other non smokers have gone home) and instead of running to the toilet pleading for help I went with them and barely noticed they were smoking.... Result! So all in all I had a great night with my smoking friends, got a bit merry and didn't want to smoke! Yaaaaay I have my social life back, it's only taken 55 days :D

    That was really a big thing for you I know, and you came through it with all guns blazing. I'm so pleased for you- a real corner turning moment I think.

    Do you have a hangover? I was out with a friend last night and drunk far too much so if you do, that makes two of us...:o (very glad I am 'working from home' today)
