Day FIVE - still going

Hey all!
OK, survived the stress of yesterday. Now, we're nearing the end of day five and heading into the weekend. Strangely, I'm most concerned about the weekend. At work, I have all that work stuff to keep my mind occupied. Sure, there's stuff around the house I could do, but who wants to do that?
I'm about out of nicotine gum, too... gotta get some more. I'm slowly getting used to the non-smoking lifestyle. I'm noticing that smokers smell funny when they come back in from their smoke breaks. and the second-hand smoke is starting to irritate me like it did when i was a kid. out of my whole family, the fact that i became a smoker is a shocker... growing up, i was always the one hacking up a lung and demanding a window be opened when my parents would light up in the car! lol
What do you non-smokers do when you go out to bars & stuff? Doesn't the smoke just kill you? Maybe it'll be worse for me... having been a smoker, I'll know what I'm missing. And I've never had a beer in my hand and not been holding a cigarette in the other. Hmmm.... night life is going to be interesting, isn't it?

My understanding is that second hand smoke bothers an ex-smoker way more than a non-smoker. Definitely try to keep yourself busy and your mind occupied as well. Good luck to you darlin'.

Remember, the city and the county are going smokeless on the 17th of next won't have to worry about the smoke in the bars.....too much of it makes me feel sick and I have to shower all over again when I get home as my hair smells like it...and then wash my clothes as they smell like smoke. Pee Yuuu...and I too am a reformed smoker.

Yes, I know. Plus, my company is going smoke-free come November 17th (the Great American Smoke-out). I figured I better go ahead and get started quitting now to beat the Christmas rush! lol With all the smoking opportunities being diminished, I'm pretty confident I'll beat this thing!
