So after being very nervous about catching up with my friends, we had a few drinks at home and... I passed!

Every time my friends and husband would all go outside, I would stay inside and clean to keep my mind occupied. Phew!!! That was a really hard test, but I am so glad I overcame it. I know there will be more trials, but so far so good.

    So Happy for you Pacific Kotiro.
    You will quickly get into the habit of being around your friends and having a drink without the need to smoke.
    At least you don't have to leave all the fun and go out in the cold for a ciggy.
    Well done!!

    Yay .. awesome work Pacific Kotiro. It takes determination to stay clean when everyone around you is still smoking. The first time for every challenge seems to be the hardest. They get easier over time. I second Clarence .. Winter is coming and you will be able to stay inside in the warm and mock them when they come back in freezing lol
