I quit smoking on July 4, after reading "Never Take Another Puff". I've tried so many times in the past, and never lasted more than 3 months. I really feel like this time is different. With all the knowledge I've gained on the dangers of nicotine, I really haven't had much trouble with it. I'm a little worried about tonight though. I'm going to encounter something I haven't got to face yet with this quit. I'm going to a cookout with some co-workers, most of who smoke. I haven't had to deal with social gatherings like that without cigarettes. I think that if I watch what I drink, and don't dwell on it, I should be OK. I made a wallet sized copy of the smokers pledge and am taking it with me as a bit of reinforcement.
