How different is my life as a non-smoker compared to this time last year! Those first few weeks of giving up made our ski trip a living torment, culminating in me having a serious meltdown at Geneva airport and my family questioning my sanity. Back again this year with some pals and how things have changed. Have just had a great day without even thinking of having a smoke. Currently in a bar having a cheeky beer before nipping off for dinner. Bliss! Lucky me
Another ski trip - different vibe - No Smoking Day
No Smoking Day
Remember that well Fordy, good to hear there's no chance of it happening again. I know what you mean - there's no comparison to this time last year.
Enjoy your trip!
Cheers Nozmo - this time last year time seemed to drag so slowly - every hour seemed to last a bleddy week. Now life trucks on, spring is on its way and all is good with the world. In some ways though my meltdown (and believe me it was a BIG meltdown) was a good thing. As well as all of the other early symptoms of quitting (exhaustion, lethargy, flu and just generally feeling rubbish) it made me realise I just had to make my quit work as I couldn't face going back through all that pain another time.
Enjoy every moment of your trip, so much nicer all smoke free, the hard work is all done, such a lovely post to read
Well done you!!
The sweet taste of freedom!
Have a brilliant holiday! 😀😀
Enjoy the rest of your trip Fordy. I just got back from St. Anton and it was all good, the friends, food, beer, & snow. We spent one night in Innsbruck and everyone seemed to be smoking in one bar. But I felt little temptation to join them (though not none). But I happily settled for the bacon dumplings.
CocoaXChange - bacon dumplings. Now they sound good (although suspiciously calorific). St Anton is great - there is a great place in St Christophe to stop for lunch as well. Am off again in a week or two with the kids - this time to Switzerland (I know, I know RoisinO1 - another holiday!). With all of these trips you might imagine that I was ok at skiing but you would be sadly mistaken - I strive for the dizzy heights of mediocrity and generally don't get there but it is always fun trying
What a difference a year makes FordyP - seems only a few months ago from your posts on the slope back then - knew you would come far from that post, well done and enjoy the rest of your trip
