It was my last day of work before Christmas yesterday and as we all walked back to the car, my colleagues gave one another a kiss and a hug. Now last year I'd of been so embarrassed to hug a non smoker cos I'd of been walking back to my car with a fag in my chops. I'd of reeked of smoke and now I don't. So pecks on the cheeks and hugs were much more comfortable and natural.
Only 2 months left and I will have cracked a year ciggy free. Still have to pinch myself because smoking was a big part of me, I thought that I'd always be addicted.
I really am so pleased that I don't miss smoking or nicotine and am trying to take more care with my appearance, especially my teeth.
With the horrible weather we've been having it makes a lovely change to spend your whole evening in doors and not outside in the cold. There is no need to take a warm coat on nights out. I can also take just a small clutch bag out as don't need room for fags and lighter.
Just thought I'd share with you a positive side of stopping, I know it's only small but every little reason makes me smile more.
Wish you all a Merry Christmas and a very happy New Year.
