One of the hardest things is that a lot of my friends smoke. We would sit around and drink wine and smoke and talk. I've hung out with a couple of them but it's been no big deal because it's in my home where smoking is not longer allowed. But...my closest friend has been on vacation since I quit, she doesn't even know. Anyway, she's coming home tonight and I think the anticipation of that is what's making today such a hard day. I know she'll be happy for me that I quit but disappointed too, like I was when my friends quit. You lose a smoking buddy. I'm hoping that my quitting might be a springboard into her quitting since we've both been talking about it a lot lately. But I also know how hard it can be to quit simultaneously with someone and then if they relapse your junkie mind uses that as justification that it's okay, for just another year, another month or whatever.
I am resolved to NEVER TAKE ANOTHER PUFF!!
