Let them look at you funny! Drinking can influence your thinking and have you believe "just one will be OK."
If you are quitting smoking, that is simply never going to be true. One will ALWAYS, maybe not right away, but always, lead to another, then another until you're smoking full time again
Don't take a chance by drinking alcohol early in your quit. Later down the road, be cautious about over-imbibing, too.
A quit is a terrible thing to lose.
