It is so ironic that I came across this post now. Overnight, I developed a chest infection, and I thought to myself, "I am so glad that I no longer smoke, otherwise, I would be in such worse shape." And that is true. So I am always mindful of what is happening in my life in terms of me being a non-smoker now, and what life would be like if I still smoked.
And when I am on public transit, I often think, wow, people here are non-smokers, and I have joined the majority. And when I smell a smoker, I want to get away from them, because I can't stand the stench, sorry to say. I still don't mind the smell of cigarette smoke itself, but I absolutely hate the stench of smoke coming from a smoker. And that was me for almost my entire life. So I am not trying to put anyone down, trust me. Just telling it like it is.
I find it helps to be super aware, because I am constantly saying to myself, "See, aren't you glad you don't smoke any more?" And that is the truth. I think of it often, and it is really helpful to me.
