Day 1 of no smoking / no nicotine. Alienating all the smokers.
Don't wanna set off any kinda unnecessary crazy in me.
My son smokes. He asked if I'd like to go with to the show. I appreciated the invitation but, declined. After the movie, the first thing the smokers do is blast outta there to go smoke. I knew he'd give me cigarettes and that is totally the opposite of what I'm all about today. Just hugging him and smelling it on him - that would set me off. I'm too new in my quit to deal with all that. So, no thanks honey. Not today.
My two best friends smoke. I told both of them today that I quit. They both asked, "How long?" I wonder if non-smokers ask that too? Is that a sabotage type question? Is it designed to patronize? Am I just being weird and overly sensitive? Like - I'm done smoking and I don't wanna be around it. I'm just all about protecting my quit cuz I know -
it's a big deal. Maybe, someday it really won't bother me... to see it, smell it, be close enough to reach out for one.
All I know is I'm not trying to get a haircut so there's no reason to go hang out at the barber / beauty shop .... right???
My other friend Lori quit a long time ago. Her birthday is today
and she will be thrilled when I tell her
She's been riding me for years. .
Now we can share this special date every year what a nice birthday gift
