So I'm now coming up to a year of stopping smoking. I was so looking forward to being financially better off, but the price of shopping, household bills and the general cost of living has seen no such saving. I dread to think how I would of been able to buy 3 packs of 20 a week.
I visit the cash machine a lot less and now can be found with little money in my purse as I no longer need to constantly have a spare tenner in case I run out of fags.
I don't miss smoking, I'm so happy that I've finally said goodbye to the need of having to smoke. I really do feel free and a lot more relaxed in any social occasion as I'm not having to think about nipping outside.
Last night I dreamt I was smoking and set a litter bin alight, so must still subconsciously think about being a smoker. I suppose we can't control our dreams because if we could I'd dream out a clean shaven Brad Pitt most nights.
Still want to pinch myself , am I really a non smoker ? The year has flown by, I'm sure now I'll stop recognising events, places or triggers when I used to smoke. Hoping my husband buys me a bunch of flowers on 27th Feb for a year fags free, if he doesn't I might just get the credit card out and book a holiday for one away to the sun with the £1000 I should but didn't save
