Yes, you bring up a good topic. I remember being leery of the warmer weather coming as well, because I used to get together with friends more outside and chat while having a smoke. And I thought, now what? But for me, I can be around people who are smoking and not indulge myself. And also, I just got used to changing my routines when necessary.
You may find that you are not huffing and puffing while gardening any more, which is a good thing. And when you need a break, why not read a book outside? Or spend more time watering the lawn? Or sometimes I would wash some veggies, put them in a big bowl, and cut them while sitting outside. Or get a lounge chair, lean back, and close your eyes for a while.
You will find a way to change your routine, Ocean. You did it with drinking, and you will do it with smoking. Just keep giving it some thought so that you will be better prepared to handle the warmer days.
