Thanks but I dont smoke.

jillygirl profile image

Good morning everyone, Had a brill day yesterday. Went on a shopping spree for shoes , slippers and a pair of jeans. It felt good as I knew how much I had saved by not smoking.

Well that was a good feeling , Then later on we had some friends round.

they were smokers. I was asked if I would like one . It felt really good as i said "thanks but I dont smoke" and my hubby smiled and said no neither of us smoke. They had a ciggy , but apart from the smell of smoke which wasnt pleasant it didnt bother me.

Take care everyone. Jillygirl.

Morning Jilly, well done to you. Even less than a week in when my friend came round I found it quite easy and she was smoking across the table from me.

Hope you didn't have to get a bigger pair of jeans!

Amazing what you think will be hard to cope with turns out ok isnt it.

Glad you are coping. And funny enough I have lost a bit of weight, so cant be bad. Take care love. Jillygirl.

Hurrah to shopping day goodness, glad you've treated yourself and check you out with the willpower thing going on I don't think I would've been so polite. If I am out walking with my boyfriend and he sparks up I tell him sternly to "take that revolting THING out of my breathing zone" and he backs off until it's finished. I am a bit evil I think ;)

You sound just like my daughter did when she quit smoking. In fact she had a few goes at me. Now as a none smoker its easier to understand. May be he will understand given time.

Take care . Jillygirl

You know Pete, that's spot on. I never thought it would bother me this much but it really does and he tries to give me a hug and kiss me and gets upset when I pull away and I try to tell him politely it's because he REEKS of smoke and even though the smell disgusts me, I know deep down a part of me misses that revolting smoking going into my lungs. It's a horrible feeling and he just doesn't get it. I wonder if smokers think non-smokers are making a big fuss just to make them feel bad and I cant speak for anyone else, but I certainly don't want to make anyone feel bad but when it directly affects me I feel I should have the right to say "don't invade my space with your stink". Is that really such a sin? :(

Hey Jillygirl, how made up were you? :-) I bet you were well chuffed! Glad you discovered it wouldn't be as hard a task to do as you thought.

I am so proud of you, well done :-)

This is something i have to get used to saying "I don't" smoke and it feels odd but so good to have finally done it.

take care too
