My best friend's birthday is today and a bunch of us gals went out to eat tonight. Out of the about 14 people there, 3 of them smoke. I used to be one of them. It was very freeing to not have to get up and go outside with the crew the few times they went out to smoke.
I am not dissing the people who did go out, but I'm dead serious, it felt amazing not to be one of them.
The friend whose birthday it is hollered at me when the smokers went out the first time - "Hey, you are not going with them!" Made me feel good that she noticed and I reminded her that I don't do that anymore
I'm out here crowing because no one else knows how cool it was not to have to go outside and to be able to stay inside celebrating the birthday.
On another note, I use Halls cough drops often as a diversion and today, I saw lemon honey cough drops and bought a bag. I gotta tell ya, they are mighty good! I may not smell like Halls for much longer. LOL
