...and it's time for sitting on the deck, picnics, barbecues, family reunions, days on the shore, and all sorts of socializing.  As smokers, we could usually smoke all we wanted because the activities were outdoors. 

More importantly to us now as ex-smokers, there is usually alcohol served.  It is difficult for your brain to remain committed if it's fogged by alcohol, so you need to be aware that drinking alcohol while quitting (or even after you quit) can be a dangerous activity.  The site is full of stories of lost quits (even some long standing ones) lost to drinking.

If you must, it's a good idea to limit your intake to just one - and to always keep in mind that there is no such thing as "just one"cigarette to an ex-smoker!

Please remain cautious.  A quit is a terrible thing to lose.
