Was going to the shop, so I got asked to buy some smokes for my mate.
Our local dairy owner knows I'd given up because I was a regular buyer before. I'd walk in and she'd head straight to my brand.
Should of seen the look of disappointment when I asked for smokes.
Then she realized it wasn't my old brand I was asking for.

Me: "yup Jazz, it's not for me it's for my workmate."
A big ray of sunshine radiated from her genuine smile.
Yeah matey thats how I feel everyday now😊😊

*Note: I let everyone know that I was quitting from day one. Announced it on my FB pg. Told all my friends, whanau, work colleagues and even my local shop keepers. One of my friends reckoned I should of just kept quiet in case I failed and I'd feel shamed....Hell NO, if I fail I'd have all these wonderful people that are rooting for me to succeed kick my ass back in there. It's ok Quit whanau to trip up, but it's only a failure if you quit trying. Brush yourself off and start again.
Better Living 💗
